Unbeaten welterweight contender Conor Benn revealed that his promoter, Eddie Hearn, has offered $10M-$10M to Gervonta Davis for him to fight him next in a mega-fight.
Benn (23-0, 14 KOs) says that if the money offered to superstar Tank Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) isn’t enough, he must stay home under house arrest with his toe tag on him.
Conor states that Gervonta shouldn’t be talking about it on social media if he’s not serious about fighting him. He also says the same about Errol Spence, who he says has been “Piping up on Twitter.”
Benn is ready to fight the former unified 147-lb champion Spence if he’s game, which is unlikely to happen due to the punishment he took in his last fight against Terence Crawford a year ago.
The Million-Dollar Offer
“A serious offer has been made. Let’s see if he’s all talk. Don’t start piping up on Twitter, and then don’t sign the contract,” said Conor Benn to iFL TV about Gervonta Davis. “If $10million-$15million ain’t enough, then stay quiet, stay at your house with your little tag on your ankle with your house arrest rather than piping up on Twitter.”
“If he thinks I’m easy work, sign the contract. If you fancy your changes, we can fight. It’s the same thing with Errol Spence piping up on social media. Let’s make the fight then.
Fueling the Speculation
It’s unknown what Gervonta Davis’ current legal situation with his house arrest is. Can the Baltimore native leave his apartment to travel to Las Vegas for a fight against the 27-year-old Benn, or is he stuck there?
Tank’s management at PBC likely has other options they’re interested in matching him with their company, fighters like Isaac Cruz, Frank Martin, or Jose Valenzuela. Those fights won’t create as much interest as a match with Benn.
The fight that U.S fans want to see is Tank Davis facing these guys:
- Ryan Garcia
- Devin Haney
- Shakur Stevenson
- Teofimo Lopez
Ryan is scheduled to fight Haney on April 20th, but Tank would be ideal to face the winner of that match if he wants a big mega-fight that will interest U.S. fans.
Benn’s No-Nonsense Approach
Conor’s approach to making the fight with Gervonta puts a lot of pressure on him, putting him in a position where he’ll look bad if he chooses to refuse the sizable offer made to him by Hearn.
