Gervonta Davis is known for his remarkable strength and quickness in the ring. He advanced through the ranks quickly to win several titles as a world champion in several weight classes. In 2017, Davis won the IBF (International Boxing Federation) super featherweight title, making him a world champion at 22. This and several of his other achievements have made him someone to look up to.

In the journey of a young apprentice, the guidance of seasoned veterans is a priceless asset. Jalil Major Hackett finds himself being commended by none other than Davis. Therefore, Davis recently took to Instagram to advise a fellow 20-year-old fighter for his upcoming fight against Adrian Gutierrez. Major is a young and promising boxer from Washington with a record of 7-0-0.

Davis reposted a reel by Overtimeboxing which featured Hackett in his training camp, on his story. Davis wrote, “@jalil_hackett  You know what to do..young but definitely on it!” Davis has been sparring with Hackett for his matches and it shows how big of a difference the spars have made. Jalil is headlining the RedOwl boxing fest event in Houston for the WBC Youth Welterweight title. Adrian Gutierrez will be his most experienced fight yet.

A young apprentice can greatly benefit from the guidance of a seasoned professional. Hackett will look to continue his 7-win streak against Gutierrez.

Following Devin ‘The Dream’ Haney’s decision to vacate his WBA title, it seems that Gervonta Davis will once again be crowned the undisputed champion. However, ‘Tank’ isn’t particularly interested in the WBA title. He recently responded on social media to the news about his promotion to the WBA (Super) lightweight championship, which he won by defeating Mario Barrios in an impressive knockout match last year. “I don’t want that s***,” said Davis.

Tank is undeniably a modern legend in the making. While he is against becoming the WBA lightweight champion, fans feel he is deserving of the title. His win against Ryan Garcia just goes on to prove why he is capable of reaching and staying at the top.

With support from Davis, do you think Hackett will once again prevail against his opponent for his 8th career win? Or do you think Gutierrez will come out on top?
