Gervonta Davis

Boxer Gervanta “Tank” Davis is the IBF Jr. Lightweight World Champion. He was born on November 7, 1994 in Baltimore, MD to mom Kenya Brown and dad Garrin Davis. His parents used drugs and spent time in jail, so he bounced around between foster homes and living with relatives. His eventual success inspired his dad to get sober. Davis’ uncles enrolled him in boxing at age five to keep him out of trouble. He quickly showed aptitude in the ring and began winning USA Boxing Junior Olympic Tournament (Silver Gloves) titles at age 10 in his weight category. In 2012, Davis became the National Golden Gloves Champion by defeating Joseph Rodriguez. At the age of 18, Davis turned pro on February 22, 2013 and beat Desi Williams in his debut matchup. He trains under the guidance of longtime coach Calvin Ford, who inspired the character Cutty on “The Wire.” He signed with Mayweather Promotions, owned by Floyd Mayweather, in 2015.
