Gervonta Davis says he welcomed Floyd Mayweather’s pep talk in the ring before his KO victory over Ryan Garcia on Saturday night.

Tank moved to 29-0 with an impressive win over Garcia, dropping him in the second round before connecting with a fine body shot in the seventh which ended the contest.

Davis split from Mayweather Promotions nearly a year ago and in the build up to the fight he accused Mayweather of being ‘petty’ for barring him from training at his gym.

However, Mayweather was in Davis’ corner for the fight and the pair shared an embrace in the ring following the victory over Garcia.

When asked to reveal Mayweather message to him in the ring before the fight, Davis said: ‘He gave me great words, he was telling me to stay calm.

‘I always like to listen to Floyd when it comes to big stages like this because he’s the only one who has been in my shoes and been in these type of fights.

‘So I always try to close to Floyd when stuff like this happens just to keep me humble and have me on the right right.

‘I always appreciate Floyd for being in my corner, having my back, always, there’ll always be love for Floyd Mayweather.’

When asked about his next potential opponent with Shakur Stevenson and Devin Haney both credible possibilities, Davis said: ‘We’ve just got to go back to the drawing board to see what’s the best decision for my career.’

Asked if he has considered his next opponent or moving weight classes, Davis replied: ‘Not right now.

‘I’m just going back to the drawing board with my team, we’ll sit down and make a decision as a team.

‘I can’t say right now because I just fought. I’m going to try to rest and hopefully we come up with a good game plan in the next couple of months and get it on again.’
