Gervonta Davis, Tevin Farmer get into heated confrontation

The two junior lightweights have a history of bad blood between one another.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

In this video caught by FightHype, IBF junior lightweight champion Gervonta Davis is seen getting into an argument with fast rising contender Tevin Farmer. Davis and Farmer have a history of going back and forth with one another, mostly via social media, but when the pair ran into each other in person, they felt the need to address certain topics - like from Farmer’s point of view, when they’ll be able to fight each other.

Farmer proposes that once he gets his hands on the WBC title (he’s currently rated No. 3 by the organization) that he and Davis unify titles immediately — if Davis isn’t willing to fight him before then. Davis, meanwhile, mostly scoffed at Farmer for the four losses he’s taken during the early part of his career despite Farmer being on a tear and winning 17 straight.

A potential fight between Davis and Farmer is probably one of the better fights to make at 130lbs as they’re both young, slick, and flashy fighters with a bit of a personal grudge that should only add to the fireworks.

But you tell me fans, what do you think of a potential fight between Davis and Farmer?
