Gervonta Davis vs. Frank Martin: The Undefeated Showdown You Can’t Afford to Miss

TWO OF BOXING’S MOST DYNAMIC SUPERSTARS TO CO-HEADLINE MASSIVE PBC PAY-PER-VIEW EVENT  ON PRIME VIDEO SATURDAY, JUNE 15 AS GERVONTA DAVIS & DAVID BENAVIDEZ ENTER THE RING IN SEPARATE BOUTS AT MGM GRAND GARDEN ARENA IN LAS VEGAS

Gervonta Davis is back, and he’s ready to defend his WBA Lightweight World Championship against Frank Martin, a man who apparently thinks putting “The Ghost” in his nickname will spook Davis out of his belt. Spoiler: it won’t. Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) will be swinging for a 12-round fight in Las Vegas against Martin (18-0, 12 KOs), who’s chasing his first world title like a caffeine addict hunting down their next fix.

Davis has held onto that lightweight title since 2019, and let’s just say he’s not too keen on letting it go. He crushed Ryan Garcia last year, dropping him faster than a hot potato with a body shot that had Garcia reevaluating his career choices in the seventh round. Davis smashed the gate record at Capital One Arena when he knocked out Hector Luis Garcia in January and sent Rolando Romero to nap land with a vicious left hook in 2022. He even stopped Leo Santa Cruz and Mario Barrios, two guys who probably wish they’d stuck to knitting.

“I’m excited to be on a card with someone explosive like David Benavidez; this pay-per-view is definitely worth it,” Davis said, with all the confidence of a guy who knows he’s about to make easy work of Frank Martin. “I’m happy to be back in the ring. That’s where I’m comfortable. I’ll go in there, be flawless, and do what I do best: give the fans the best boxing they’ll see. Come June 15, Frank Martin is going to see there’s a different beast in front of him.”

Martin, meanwhile, dropped Artem Harutyunyan last July in the final round to clinch a unanimous decision victory, showing that, yes, he can still throw a punch after 12 rounds. In December 2022, he dominated Michel Rivera, a guy who was unbeaten until he met Martin. Under the “Man Down Promotions” banner led by Errol Spence Jr., Martin started his climb at 135 pounds by stopping Jerry Perez in 2021 and then proceeded to take out Jackson Marinez, Romero Duno, and Ryan Kielczweski like he was clearing a shopping list.

“I’ve been locked in for a while and having a solid training camp,” Martin said, apparently confusing himself with someone who’s never fought Gervonta Davis. “It’ll be an exciting fight on June 15. I expect the best version of ‘Tank,’ and he’ll get the best version of me. We’ll have a solid game plan to win on fight night.”
