Forget the suit and tie, Keyshawn ‘The Businessman’ Davis brought the hammer to Vegas. He dominated the former champ Jose Pedraza in a 6th-round TKO masterclass. Footwork sharper than a tailor’s blade, jabs quicker than a stock market tick, and punches heavier than a CEO’s bonus – Davis ran the show.

He’s now left Pedraza looking like yesterday’s news. Now Davis is ready to move on to the bigger things because right after the fight, he decided to call out Teofimo Lopez. This could turn out to be a big leap for Davis, and he stated that Lopez just needs to send him a contract and the rest will be done by his team.

Rising star Keyshawn Davis isn’t waiting for his turn. The Olympic silver medalist threw a wrench in the lightweight division by calling out unified champion Teofimo Lopez. Davis believes he can not only match the reigning king but outright dethrone him. This bold claim has sent shockwaves through the boxing world. Furthermore, he’s even addressed this fight in an interview with Fight Hub TV.

Davis stated, “All Teofimo got to do is send a contract, that’s all he got to do. We got the same promoter, we seen each other in the Top Rank office, we can go back to the office, sit down as men and we can make the fight happen. All he got to do is send me the contract and the fight will be happening.” So, he can see himself triumphing against Lopez, and it’s about time that Keyshawn Davis tries out for a title shot.

Well, his callout has reached the doorstep of his rival, and Teofimo Lopez has reacted to Davis’s challenge. He called it a technique to gain attention and nothing else.

After Davis’s post-fight demand for a title shot ignited tension, Lopez dismissed Davis as unworthy. Will Lopez underestimate the young gun? Well, as of now, that’s what it seems since Lopez doesn’t think Keyshawn Davis would be a great fit to be his next opponent. Furthermore, he believes that it’s still too early for Davis to receive a grand stage, and he doesn’t think Davis is at that level yet.

Speaking with Punch Drunk Boxing Podcast, Lopez stated, “This kid Keyshawn Davis they talkin’ about, he just wants an easy route to be famous. So big-headed. Completely big-headed. Hasn’t done anything in the sport of boxing. Doesn’t even have a world title. Those little belts that he has. I got that the first year I turned pro.” Furthermore, he continued, “S**t that was in three years, three years and some change, I became a world champion at 22 years young.”

So, it turns out Lopez and Davis wouldn’t be getting inside the ring anytime soon, however, the Businessman still hasn’t lost hope regarding the prospect of this bout.
