Gervonta Davis warns Campbell Hatton he’ll be ‘eating through a straw’ with dad Ricky if he challenges him

GERVONTA DAVIS warned Campbell Hatton he will be “eating through a straw” with his dad Ricky if he challenges the American.

Davis, 27, boasts a staggering 27-0 record in professional boxing – with 25 coming by way of knockout.

The WBA lightweight world champion secured his latest win in May and is yet to confirm his next opponent.

But when a boxing Twitter account suggested he takes on Hatton, Davis was having none of it.

And he made a brutal prediction should the 21-year-old Mancunian dare step into the ring with him.

The Tank tweeted: “He’ll be at dinner w[ith] his pops the next night eating his food through a straw.”

Hatton’s dad Ricky famously fought Davis’ mentor Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2007, losing his unbeaten record in his 44th bout.

And as the 44-year-old prepares to make his return to boxing, Davis appears to have no interest in fighting his son.

Campbell has won all nine of his dust-ups since going pro but many feel it is too early in his young career to fight fellow lightweight Davis, who promptly deleted his tweet.

One fan replied to Davis: “I think it would be wise not to even think of young Hatton fighting Tank at this stage – the young lad hasn’t been fighting long enough and would get seriously hurt. Just keep bringing Campbell on at a steady pace.”


Another said: “This is a terrible mismatch. Gervonta Davis is a Champions League boxer. Campbell Hatton is a Championship boxer at domestic level.”

And a third added: “I like Campbell. Gets a lot of grief for no good reason, but… he’s not ready for Tank. Years away, if ever.”

And a final user commented: “Sorry, even this early, he’s not even close to his dad. Total mismatch and unfair comparison.”
