The MayMac trend seems to be continuing as Gervonta Davis, the undefeated 20-0 boxer who trains at the Mayweather gym is managed by Mayweather promotions, called out UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw after he beat Cody Garbrandt at UFC 227 to retain his belt.
This led to a somewhat lengthy back and forth between the duo on Twitter with Gervonta even saying that he’s ready to step into the Octagon to fight Dillashaw in MMA.
It is worth noting that Dillashaw does occasionally train with Vasiyl Lomachenko, a boxer who is often touted as a possible opponent to Gervonta Davis, whose name also cropped up when the two fighters were talking smack to one another over social media.
You can see the complete back and forth between them below.
He was then asked by a fan if he was talking about a boxing bout like the one Mayweather had with McGregor or a MMA bout. Surprisingly, Davis replied the latter.
And anyone who knows anything about TJ Dillashaw, also knows that he isn’t the type to back down.
Then, Dillashaw turned the trash talk up a notch and directly issued a challenge to Davis when quizzed about it by Brendan Schaub. Unsurprisingly, Davis responded in kind.
Do you think this will actually play out into a super fight between the two fighters…or is this just another addition to the latest trend of fighters across combat sports calling one another out?
