Leonard Ellerby, promoter of four-time world champion American Jervonta Davis (24-0-0, 23 KO), said the fan base will not influence who his ward competes against.
“You saw just a drop of his future success. The guy is on a whole different level of attractiveness. He has an incredible ability to grab the attention of young people, and we don’t care what the critics are talking about.
We love the fans and will continue to do the best fights possible for them, but it’s not up to them to decide where we go. It’s a great sport, but it’s also a business. And no one will dictate to us who and when to fight, “Ellerby said.
