A potentially mouth-watering Vasyl Lomachenko vs Gervonta Davis fight is set to become a very real possibility sooner rather than later it has emerged.
When the fight was mentioned in the past most didn’t think it would have any real possibility of happening largely due to ‘Tank’ Davis being early on in his career and the perception that existed that his promoter Floyd Mayweather would look to protect his young champion from such a ferocious task in Lomachenko.
A man regarded by many as the pound for pound best in the sport since Mayweather retired no less.
Not the case however.
Lomacehnko’s promoter Top Rank confirmed that Mayweather in fact reached out to them about the fight this week:
I can confirm @FloydMayweather called me Wednesday night and we discussed @VasylLomachenko v @Gervontaa.

Furthermore, Mayweather himself spoke about the fight live on Showtime television this weekend and even said it is next:
Well, there you have it.
Davis first must get through his next fight and Lomachenko his in May – but it looks a goer following those bouts.
Davis however sent some interesting posts on social media which suggest that all might not perhaps be well relationship-wise with he and members of his team:
