Sean O'Malley interested in fighting Gervonta Davis



Sean O'Malley, the current UFC Bantamweight Champion, is in no rush to jump into a potential showdown with the boxing superstar, Gervonta Davis. Fresh from his triumph at UFC 292, where he defeated Aljamain Sterling to claim the UFC bantamweight title, O'Malley finds himself as one of the most popular combat atheletes.


Having secured the most significant victory of his UFC career, O'Malley is carefully considering his future challenges. One notable contender on his radar is Marlon Vera, a fighter he lost to earlier in his career. O'Malley is eager to set the record straight in a rematch, showcasing his relentless drive to improve as a fighter.


However, it's O'Malley's persistent desire for a boxing bout with Gervonta Davis that has garnered the most attention. Despite his enthusiasm for the matchup, O'Malley recognizes that the fight may not materialize in the immediate future. He's not pushing for an immediate showdown, understanding the importance of timing and preparation.

In his words, "I need to go out there and knock out my next guy, he needs to go out there and continue to build himself, and then we can have a Conor-Floyd situation."
I'm just planting the seeds and letting it grow. I would love that fight. T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, the Suga Show versus Gervonta. I just think it could definitely happen and I'd love to make it happen someday."

O'Malley also acknowledges that he and Davis are not as famous as McGregor and Mayweather were when they fought. However, he's planting the seeds for the future, envisioning a grand showdown in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.


On the other side of the equation, Davis' trainer has expressed doubts about O'Malley's chances in the boxing ring, suggesting that the fight might end swiftly in just a few minutes. Despite this skepticism, O'Malley maintains unwavering confidence in his abilities and his potential to succeed in such a high-stakes bout.
