Gervonta "Tank" Davis is back in the ring for the first time this year, when he defends his WBA lightweight title against Frank Martin.

The unbeaten American last fought against Ryan Garcia in April 2023, winning with a brutal stoppage.

The fight takes place in Las Vegas on a stacked card, and a win for either man would likely put them in the frame for a unification clash later this year.

    What has been said?

    Ahead of his bout with Davis, Martin has been speaking about his plans. 

    Despite being undefeated in his professional career, the challenger is a heavy underdog heading into this one, but he doesn't care.

    Speaking at his pre-fight media workout, he said: "I feel like this is one of those moments where all the hard work I put in is paying off.

    "This just feels like a life-changing moment.

    "I believe in myself, even if the world is against me.

    "It’s just time for me to show up and show out.

    "We all know what ‘Tank’ brings, but a lot of guys don’t know what I bring.

    "He’s got it all, but on fight night, the world will see that I’ve got it all, too."
