GERVONTA “TANK” DAVIS REFLECTS ON HIS FIRST ROUND TKO WIN IN LAS VEGAS

Davis added another quick stoppage to his record by defeating Recky Dulay on the Mayweather-Berto undercard at the MGM Grand Garden Arena during Mexican Independence Day Weekend.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, U.S.A. – On Saturday night, September 12, 2015, super featherweight professional boxer, Gervonta “Tank” Davis (Baltimore, Maryland/12-0-0, 11 KOs) made quick work of Recky “The Terror” Dulay (Philippines/8-2-0, 5 KOs) on the Mayweather Promotions card titled “High Stakes,” held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. During the opening round, Davis knocked Dulay down twice with left hands to the head. Immediately following the second knock down, Dulay signaled to referee Russell Mora that he didn’t want to continue, forcing Mora to call a halt to the action at 1:34 of the first round. Davis-Dulay was originally scheduled for eight rounds, but was moved to a six-round fight on the day of the fight to accommodate the Showtime televised broadcast. In the main event, Floyd “Money” Mayweather defeated Andre Berto by unanimous decision.

Gervonta Davis discussed his win in Las Vegas. He said, “It feels great to be 12-0. I enjoyed myself this past week, being in Las Vegas, and fighting on the biggest stage in boxing. It was great meeting so many boxing fans all week long during Mexican Independence Day Weekend. I wasn’t looking for the knockout during my fight. My team had a great game plan, and we had planned to go into the late rounds, but my opponent wasn’t able to handle my power. I landed a few shots, and then he didn’t want to fight anymore. At this point, I’m ready to take a step up to the next level in competition. I want to keep challenging myself so that I’ll be ready to fight for a title. Now that Floyd Mayweather is stepping away from boxing, he is passing all his knowledge on to me, so that I can be “The One.” Floyd believes in me, and he knows I have put in work to continue doing what he did. I have a strong team around me, and I’m ready for the challenge. I’ve been boxing for over 12 years. I believe in myself and I don’t see anyone in my division that can beat me. Thank you to my team, Floyd Mayweather and Mayweather Promotions, Al Haymon, Yekim, Nike Boxing, Athlete Performance Solutions, Rich Brand, and Ethika. Keep supporting me, and I’ll fight for you.”

Davis’ longtime boxing coach, Calvin Ford (Upton Boxing Center), said, “Tank performed well and executed the game plan that we worked on during our training camp. As his coach, I wanted him to get more rounds in during the fight to give him more ring experience. We’ll ask for another upgrade in competition and then evaluate where we are after our next challenge. We plan to stay in the gym, and I’d like to see him stay busy. We appreciate everybody that is getting behind our team.

Gervonta is a special fighter, and I believe he’s ready for the big time. I am very proud of him, and he’s becoming a great example of success for young people in Baltimore. We appreciate Floyd Mayweather, his staff, and his coaches for welcoming us into their family and treating us like family. They made the transition easy for us to train in Las Vegas, and we really appreciate that. We are looking forward to bigger and better things for Gervonta Davis.”

Floyd Mayweather said, “Gervonta won in spectacular fashion once again. If he keeps working hard, sky is the limit. I keep reminding him that he needs to stay focused, and great things will happen for him. He is a big part of our plans going forward at Mayweather Promotions.”

Las Vegas (July 29, 2015)–Jr. Middleweight, Michael Moore (13-1, 6 KO’s) is currently out in Las Vegas fine tuning his skills under the leadership and training of Jeff Mayweather. Mayweather is assisting in taking the fighter that’s known as “The Silverback” to the next level.

Said Moore, “I have never worked with such an incredible trainer. It’s all about being secure with constructive criticism and understanding that this man is here to take me to that championship level like he has done so many others.” 

In a gym filled with talent, it could be hard to stand out in a crowd of so many fighters, but Moore has gotten the attention of not only his trainer Jeff Mayweather and strength and conditioning coach Delaney Howard.  Recently a special guest came and gave some advice to Mike. Floyd Mayweather Sr. was walking around, and he jumped in the ring and starting giving Moore some of his wisdom..

Michael Moore is all about his family. He Google video chats with his wife and children up to three-times a day and absolutely hates being away from them. Moore has said on so many occasions he feels bad for whoever steps in the ring with him next because they are going to feel the pain that he has been feeling these past few weeks.

Mike Moore on working with strength and conditioning coach Delaney Howard:

“Delaney has known me my whole life. He knows how to really push me to the next level and pump me up when I eel like I’ve had enough.This boxing game is no joke and its important to have a team around you that won’t let you stop & won’t let you give up.  That motivates you to that championship level.”

Moore, 29 years old from Cleveland, Ohio, was an entrant in the Boxcino 2015 Jr. Middleweight tournament and will have an announcement on his next fight shortly.

Mundine Gets Cold Feet. Backs Out of Title Fight vs Andrade

PROVIDENCE (July 20, 2015) – The long awaited ring return for undefeated World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior middleweight champion Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (21-0, 14 KOs) has, unfortunately, hit another roadblock as Anthony “The Man” Mundine (47-7, 27 KOs) has reneged on an agreement to challenge Andrade next month in his native Australia.

“We agreed to terms with Mundine’s promoter but have heard nothing back since then,” 27-year-old Andrade explained. “Mundine calls out (Floyd) Mayweather but he won’t take a legitimate WBO World title fight at 154 pounds in his own country? Same old story, I guess. Everybody wants something until they have a chance to really get it.”

“Anthony Mundine’s team had one of those careful-what-you-wish-for moments,” Andrade’s manager Ed Farris noted, “in which Demetrius accepted all of their requested terms, including Demetrius putting up his WBO belt to fight Mundine on his own home turf. After previously agreeing to fight Andrade, Mundine’s team has now had a change of heart, and they apparently are looking to fight a lesser opponent.”

Andrade hasn’t fought since he destroyed WBO No. 1 mandatory contender Brian Rose (25-1-1) in seven rounds on June 14, 2014. Unable to lure either Mayweather or Miquel Cotto into a mega-fight, nor WBO No. 1 contender Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, or even a unification with WBA champion Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara, 2008 U.S. Olympian Andrade believed that he finally had a title defense locked in for next month against former two-time super middleweight world champion Mundine.

“I don’t understand,” a frustrated Andrade added. “We offered this guy a chance to win the championship of the world in his home country and he looked for a way out instead? What kind of fighter is he? Any real fighter would do anything for that kind of an opportunity.”
