What's Next for Gervonta Davis? Frank Martin and Lomachenko on the Horizon

Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko reclaimed his position at the pinnacle of the lightweight division with a commanding 11th-round knockout victory over George Kambosos in Perth, Australia. The win secured Lomachenko the vacant IBF world lightweight title, reaffirming his status as one of the division's elite fighters.

Despite being 36 years old, Lomachenko showed no signs of slowing down, showcasing his skill and agility throughout the one-sided bout. His victory over Kambosos marked a triumphant return to the ring after a narrow and controversial loss to Devin Haney in May 2023.

Lomachenko's impressive resume includes fights against notable opponents such as Jorge Linares, Guillermo Rigondeaux, Teofimo Lopez, and Luke Campbell. His performance against Kambosos has reignited talks of a potential showdown with Gervonta Davis, who holds a perfect record of 29-0 with 27 knockouts.

Davis, who is scheduled to defend his title against Frank Martin on June 15 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, expressed interest in facing Lomachenko in the future. Despite the promotional divide between the two fighters, with Lomachenko represented by Top Rank and Davis part of PBC, Davis indicated his willingness to take on Lomachenko after his upcoming fight.

“He’s [Lomachenko] after Frank… Let me get Frank [Martin] first,” Davis responded.

ESPN informed Lomachenko of Davis' intentions, to which the Ukrainian champion responded calmly, stating that he has never shied away from challenges and is open to the possibility of a unification bout with Davis once he has had time to rest following his victory in Australia.

Lomachenko's victory over Kambosos and the potential future matchup with Davis have sparked excitement among boxing fans, with many eagerly anticipating the next chapter in Lomachenko's storied career.
