IBF junior lightweight champion Gervonta Davis will soon begin training camp in Baltimore for his upcoming title defense which appears to be the co-feature to potentially the biggest pay-per-view of all time.
Davis will defend his title at the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor mega fight taking place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26. Davis won the IBF title back in January after he defeated previously unbeaten former champion Jose Pedraza. An opponent has yet to be determined for the fight.
It has been long rumored that Davis, who is Mayweather's protégé, would be a part of the pay-per-view card since Mayweather vs. McGregor was announced just weeks after Davis retained his title with a TKO win over Liam Walsh. According to Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe, the full card will be announced soon.
Former super middleweight world champion Badou Jack, who's also signed with Mayweather Promotions, is also rumored to be fighting on the pay-per-view card, possibly against WBA light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly. Mayweather has publicly stated that he wanted to have both Davis and Jack compete on the card long before the fight was even announced.
Fightful will have complete coverage of the buildup to Mayweather vs. McGregor, including the pay-per-view.
