Gervonta Davis never not holds back when it comes to making snarky comments about his potential rivals. This time it was Regis Prograis who was in his crosshairs. Currently, Prograis is preparing for a massive showdown against Devin Haney. The upcoming match on December 9 at the Chase Center in San Francisco is poised to be a significant event for WBC super welterweight champion Prograis, who is set to defend his title against Devin Haney. The bout is scheduled to be broadcast on DAZN PPV in North America.

So, before the fight, ‘Rougarou’ was seen flaunting his physical prowess, however, Davis did not shy away from nitpicking on his boxing prowess. Although Haney is the one moving up in the weight class, many people still consider Regis Prograis as the underdog since his opponent has been the undisputed lightweight champion. So much so, that even ‘Tank’ is making fun of Prograis publicly.

A few hours ago, Regis Prograis posted a picture right from his training camp, and maybe from a sparring session. Since he’s standing with his sparring gloves and headgear on, it can be speculated that either he has completed a sparring session or he’s going to indulge in one. So, he posted the picture on the X app, with the caption, “3 more weeks.

Well, a boxing fan came across this picture, who is a supporter of Prograis, and wrote, “And still,” thus, indicating that he’d successfully defend his title against Haney. Well, Davis thought otherwise and he retweeted the fan’s post, and wrote in his now-deleted post, “AND STILL a flat footed b*stard.

So, even though Davis has stated numerous times that he wants to take on Devin Haney and has animosity with him, the respect is still there between the fighters. Well, this is not a new thing as Davis sometimes trolls one fighter and as a result, supports another. Not long ago, he took a verbal jab at Devin Haney, and as a result, defended yet another rival Shakur Stevenson.

The recent fight between Shakur Stevenson and Edwin De Los Santos turned out to be a disappointment for a lot of boxing fans. It was a lackluster display that left the audience dissatisfied. Both fighters failed to impress, eliciting disapproving boos from the crowd in the later rounds. The lack of engagement was particularly evident in the performance of De Los Santos, who managed to land a mere 40 punches throughout the entire 12 rounds, as reported by the official Compubox statistics.

This notably low punch count set a new record, marking the fewest number of punches recorded in a 12-round fight since the introduction of the Compubox system 38 years ago. So, Devin Haney had offered Stevenson a 75-25 offer, before the De Los Santos fight. Then Haney stated, “Should’ve offered this Bum 10% I was being too generous!” Well after this, Davis instantly took a jab at Haney and came to Stevenson’s defense.

Davis remarked in a now-deleted tweet, “That’s what I’m offering you, son son.” So, at one point he was supporting Stevenson to poke ‘The Dream’. Now he’s poking Prograis which puts him on the side of his his rival, Haney. What are your thoughts about this? Tell us in the comments section.
