Who will Gervonta Davis next fight be against?

Gervonta Davis stamped his place as one of the faces of boxing when he was able to stop previously undefeated star Ryan Garcia in April 2023. However, his return to the ring did not come soon after. However, after 14 months on the sidelines, the young superstar returns on June 15, and welcoming him back will be top 10 lightweight Frank Martin.

How to watch Gervonta Davis vs. Frank Martin in June

  • Davis vs. Martin will headline a card on June 15
  • A location for the event has not yet been determined
  • The card will air exclusively on Amazon Prime

Gervonta Davis vs Frank Martin preview

Following his dominant win over Ryan Garcia last year, the expectation was that Davis would find himself in a high-profile fight against the elites of the division in his return. Instead, he will face a ranked foe in Martin, but it is still a booking that many consider a safe fight for “Tank.”

Ring Rust?: This bout will be a unique test for Davis because it will be the longest layoff the 29-year-old has had between fights. While many around the combat sports business question if ring rust is legitimate, long layoffs affect fighters in different ways. If Davis had practiced hard since the Garcia win he should be fine, if not he could have a tough fight on his hands in June.

High Risk: For some, Martin is a similar opponent to previous Davis bookings and is a favorable matchup. Considering that fact this a risky bout for Davis. He is in a matchup he should easily win, but if he were to fall or struggle, it would damage his brand since it would happen against a fighter a level below him in the lightweight division.

The bottom line: It is good to have Gervonta Davis back in the ring, and early in the year. For his legion of fans, it means he could fight multiple times in 2024, and a big win over Martin could set the stage for a massive clash against a top lightweight in the fall.

With the backing of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Davis has become one of the top young fighters in the sport. He is an elite talent at lightweight, a champion, and is becoming one of the more notable brands in the fight game. However, the 27-year-old native of Baltimore’s rise to fame has had some notable bumps in the road.

  • The kid from Maryland has had several run-ins with the law, including arrests for punching a friend in 2017, a domestic altercation with his girlfriend in 2020, and several charges for a hit-and-run in 2021.
