Leonard Ellerbe: Gervonta Davis willing to fight all comers, including Teofimo Lopez and Josh Taylor

The Mayweather Promotions promoter dicusses his star’s future prospects.

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

In response to a question about whether Gervonta Davis would be willing to face fighters such as Teofimo Lopez or Josh Taylor, Mayweather promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe says his fighter can beat any top name around his weight class and that it’s all just a matter of making the best moves possible.

On facing Lopez or Taylor

“Tank will fight anybody. It’s not about going down, he will campaign and fight the biggest fights possible, and there’s no name specific because in my opinion, his opinion, and Floyd’s opinion, he can beat each and every one of those guys out there. It’s just a matter of us making the fight.”

On Taylor’s performance against Jose Ramirez

“It was a tremendous fight. Again, I was picking Ramirez. I’m on the record for saying that. I thought Ramirez had enough and he could do enough but again, all credit is due to Josh Taylor. He fought a tremendous fight, you got to give him credit.”

On if a fight against Vasiliy Lomachenko is still of interest

“We’ll fight anybody. We’ll fight anybody, it just has to totally make sense.”
