Gervonta Davis on having his first PPV show without the involvement of Mayweather Promotions

“This just a test run right now, just on my own type of joint. But much love to Mayweather Promotions, Leonard, Floyd, all them guys. I definitely appreciate them but I’m just doing my own thing now. I’m not saying in the future we can’t work together or anything like that.”
