Jervonta Davis plans to stay at the featherweight title

BOXING

The undefeated two-weight WBA champion Jervont Davis has a ton of big fights in the lightweight division, but the Baltimore native isn’t averse to staying in the second featherweight for at least one more fight.

Recall that last weekend, Davis issued one of the brightest knockouts of this year, stopping the ex-champion Leo Santa Cruz with the strongest uppercut. This fight took place in the 130-pound division, and Davis, who in the past had frequent problems with discipline and weight reduction, decided to prepare for the most important fight of his career under the arches of the Floyd Mayweather gym in Las Vegas.

“I feel great at 130 pounds,” said Davis, who will continue to train at the Mayweather Boxing Club. “I think that’s my natural weight. It’s up to me if I stay in the gym, keep fit as a full-fledged athlete. I definitely feel good at 130, but you know, if an intriguing opportunity comes up in lightweight, “And I’m also a 135-pound champion, then we can have a fight there.”
