Gervonta Davis and Floyd Mayweather now at breaking point?

In an unexpected and simply bizarre turn of events, world super featherweight champion Gervonta Davis seems to have reached a breaking point with his promoter Floyd Mayweather Jr. The news comes from a series of tweets from ‘Tank’ himself.

Floyd, during his career was often known for his exuberance and flossing, splashing his hard-earned fortunes wherever he pleased and sharing for all to see. However, it appears the youngster doesn’t want the same fate as Mayweather, with the first tweet blasting the former P4P king for leaking his business.

Whether this was Floyd being unreasonable or showing pride in Gervonta’s success in a strange, twisted way is yet to be seen but one thing is for sure; the 23-year-old did not seem best pleased with the nature of Mayweather’s behavior.

Ending the ‘rant’ with a statement of Jr never supporting him in the ring added a very serious touch to what seemed like a standard episode. And Davis didn’t just leave it there.

Quoting how Floyd does not want to see him win really hit home to fans worldwide and had boxing fans talking about the situation. Whether a misunderstanding or truth, there is certainly friction and tension between the pair.

Davis, an extremely talented fighter in his own right, has been helped along in his career by Floyd, and though neither guy needs the other, there is certainly a mutual beneficiary, or so it seemed…

With this outcry from Gervonta, it will be interesting to see what the next steps taken are; whether the pair speak and sort their differences or whether Davis looks elsewhere.

Though Mayweather has helped bring recognition, it has been noted that Mayweather does seem to be self-centered when ‘Tank’ fights, taking over post-fight interviews, drawing any possible attention to him and giving his fighter little room to breathe. Gervonta elaborated on this in the latest addition to his social media outcry.

Regardless of what times lie ahead of for Gervonta Davis and what tides and turns occur; the world is his oyster and is arguably the most exciting prospect in all of boxing.
