Inside Gervonta Davis’ broken relationship with Floyd Mayweather as Tank prepares for a huge fight with Ryan Garcia

Gervonta Davis and Floyd Mayweather were once close and worked together but are now in a troubled relationship.

The 28-year-old took to social media last month to accuse Mayweather of preventing him from training for his upcoming fight against Ryan Garcia at the Mayweather gym.

Tank is gearing up for his second fight since parting ways with Mayweather Promotions and leaving with his longtime advisor Al Haymon.

Mayweather’s call, originating from Baltimore, prompted an exchange between Garcia and Davis on Twitter.

Garcia mentioned Davis and accused him of being a drama starter.

“You always act like you have information. Garcia tweeted.

“You’re basically just a shadow room [gossip] side, relax. I’ve heard a lot about you too.”

Davis answered (in a deleted tweet): “What? This Floyd said I couldn’t use his gym anymore. I don’t give af—k!

“No, I didn’t hear that. I know that, idiot!”

Davis began working with Haymon in 2014 and met Mayweather shortly thereafter in 2015.

Mayweather promotions helped him to a 26-0 record.

When news broke last year that Davis was leaving, Mayweather explained in an interview:

“There’s nothing like taking a kid from the same background as yours, helping them and empowering them to become a multi-millionaire.”

Despite their differences, Davis recently said he believes Mayweather is the best boxer of all time, according to

“I like trying to watch him a lot. I always enjoy watching Floyd because I think he’s the best, like the greatest of all time.”

Gracia and Davis will fight April 22 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
