Gervonta Davis trains with Floyd Mayweather, throwing explosive hooks and uppercuts in preparation for Leo Santa Cruz
Gervonta Davis was in the gym training with Floyd Mayweather on Wednesday night.
Ahead of his world title clash with Leo Santa Cruz on October 24, the unbeaten, hard-hitting super-featherweight has started preparations at the Mayweather Gym.
In footage uploaded by sports agent Alonzo Earle, the pair could be seen working on the mitts during an extended session.
‘Tank’ is promoted by Floyd’s ‘Mayweather Promotions’, however they have not always seen eye to eye in the past.
Recently, when Mayweather started helping out Gervonta’s rival Devin Haney, there was speculation a fresh rift could appear.
This is clearly not the case though, as they put any past differences aside to link up and train.
Davis has a record of 23-0 (22 KOs) and boasts the reputation of being one of the most exciting young fighters in boxing.
The 25-year-old is facing an experienced four-weight champion in the form of 31-year-old Santa Cruz.
Leo is 37-1-1 (19 KOs), though many believe he will be too small to handle Davis as he only recently moved up to 130lbs.
Fans will find out one way or the other when the pair meet on October 24.
