    So Tank Davis power bails him out late after getting worked over and he beats a paper champion. Great.

    What is the endgame?

    How many different weights can he possibly move between while cherry picking opponents before he has to face a real champion at one of those weights?

    What is the purpose of having him keep that zero if he isn’t going to face a legitimate champ?

    i think they are maneuvering
    Him around in house as much as possible to make as much money as possible & try to leverage him to become the A-side as his name explodes with casuals

    before risking him across platforms & promoters.

    I think that is the end game.

    It's actually diabolical. Keep moving weights to get the easier fights. End your career as a 4 weight, 7 time champion that ppl still aren't sure was that great but those stats will still get you on the hof ballot.

    To make as much as possible with the least amount of risk. I like Tank, his power is for real, but I'm getting tired of waiting for him to fight a top fighter.

    One thing for certain, they will avoid top tier fighters at all costs. Tank is literally owned by Floyd. He has no say in who he fights next. One thing for sure he will be cherry picked as much as possible to max profit and the illusion of greatness.

    Gayvis has been avoiding punchers. I'd like to see Pac KO him.

    Before anyone says 147 doe, Gayvis is the same size as Pac.

    When Gervonta Davis viciously knocks out Va-SILLY Lose-a-chenko unconscious with his eyes rolled back and his tongue hanging out of his slack jaw as he lays crumbled on the canvas..

    I will make sure to post non-stop how special and spectacular he is. I am sure all the haters will have a 1000 excuses ready to copy and paste when the sour, disgraceful, dirty scared little 2x professional loser becomes a 3x professional loser.

    Eventually they will run out of bums for Tank to use to pad his inflated record. At least he will have less of a chance of losing his belt on the scale at 140. He’s going to continue fighting bums and avoiding all real opposition until fans wake up and demand it. His fans are pretty dumb so don’t hold your breath.

    Tank's Endgame sounds like a Tom Clancy novel.

    Not sure what people are looking for but tanks still only 26 still relatively young. The record of his last 9 opponents between them is something like 243 wins and 11 defeats.

    I,d say there bringing him on perfectly. Its not like there spoon feeding him mugs. These guys hes fighting are good fighters.

    All comes down to the next 3 years tho. He will step it up in that timeframe i,d have thought. At that point...theres not really anywhere else to go but the top guys if he keeps beating good guys like hes beating them. Hes had a well managed career in that thats how a fighter should be brought along. Hes serving his time atm...fighting pretty decent guys. A step up will happen in the next year or two.

    The problem people have is that Tank's best opponent was Pedraza several years ago. He's been matched softly ever since.

    Yep, what's just as doabolique, was listening to Ray Flores all night claming Tank was about to be crowned World Champion at 140 and then Jim Gray calling him a 4 weight world champion in his post fight interview, US mainstream media at it's finest.
