Gervonta Davis Makes Easy Work Of Cuellar, Wants PPV Fight Next

On April 21, Gervonta Davis made easy work of Jesus Cuellar securing a Technical Knock Out (TKO) victory in just three rounds. Referee Benjy Esteves Jr. called the bout at the 2:45 mark of round three.

Davis, fighting out of Baltimore, MD holds a record of (20-0, 19 KO’s). He became world champion for the second time in his young career. Securing the WBA Super World super featherweight title. The fight took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The 23-year-old landed a beautiful body shot in round two and then made the 31-year-old Cuellar hit the canvas twice in round three.

After being stripped of his IBF title late August last year after missing weight against Francisco Fonseca, Davis is once again at the top.

With the win secured, Davis states he is ready for the big show.

“I’m ready for Lomachenko if they’re ready to put it PPV,” Davis said.

Vasyl Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KO’s) was surprised to see Davis wanted to fight him. Before, when the two fighters fought at super featherweight at the same time there was no talk of fighting.

“I read he wants the fight, only on PPV. What are you talking about? You’ve never had the main event, you fight only co-main. What kind of a PPV is that going to be?” Lomachenko said.

Bob Arum, of Top Rank and Lomachenko’s promoter, said he’d make the fight happen but only if there is serious interest from Davis and his promotor Floyd Mayweather Jr.

In the meantime, Lomachenko will fight for a world title against WBA World lightweight champion Jorge Linares (44-3, 27 KO’s) on May 12. The fight will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York. Next, Lomachenko wants to fight Mikey Garcia (38-0, 30 KO’s) in a unification fight. Garcia will most likely be the IBF/WBC lightweight champion and is believed to be fighting IBF lightweight champion Robert Easter Jr. next.

“I want this fight. I like the challenge, Mikey is a big challenge for me and I want this fight. It will be a historical fight,” Lomachenko said.

With making easy work against Cuellar, Davis will have to wait for Lomachenko’s next move. With his mindset for his next opponents inside the ring, this gives Davis time to work into main events and show he’s worthy of a PPV fight.
