Homecoming: Gervonta Davis

Showtime previews Davis’ upcoming hometime title defense on July 27.

With WBA junior lightweight champion Gervonta Davis (21-0, 20 KOs) set to make his first hometown title defense against Ricardo Nunez (21-2, 19 KOs) on July 27 in Baltimore, the Showtime crew takes us behind the scenes of Davis’ promotional build-up.

In this short video feature Davis talks a little about his upbringing under the guidance of longtime trainer Calvin Ford, and what it means to him to finally be getting the chance to perform in front of his hometown fans.

“I’m looking forward, working hard everyday just to be able to put on the performance that I want, to become that big star in the sport of boxing,” Davis says.

Shortly after we follow Davis to a local press event where he thanks the fans of Baltimore for backing him throughout his young career.

Davis will be looking to put on an electrifying performance in this outing, which will hopefully lead into some of the bigger bouts we’d like to see in the division.
