Now THAT would have been some main event.
Gervonta Davis against Adrien Broner…street rules.
That is what the rumor mill is saying, after this Tweet whipped around the fight game world.
Tank vs AB…And supposedly Tank's PR guy Lorin Chvotkin was in the mix.
Supposedly, we say, because this scenario has been boldly refuted, publicy.
Davis Tweeted out that he didn't know about any tussle feating him and the Cincinnati-bred boxer.
Showtime bossman Stephen Espinoza confidently dismissed it as erroneous.
He fired another blast at Mannix, too:
And videographer Elie Sechback, who captured tons of footage of AB and Tank hanging and chilling Saturday night and Sunday morning, said that the fight rumor was just that, all rumor, no fact.
One fight game insider messaged me and said that AB and Tank were hanging, and were in fact asked to leave the premises of the MGM, together. No cuffs or anything. But no, the dude said, they didn't battle and no PR guy was punched.
I messaged Chvotkin to ask, and he didn't respond. He might hold a grudge on me for a back and forth I had with Mikey Garcia while Mikey was on hiatus, he also has repped Mikey, and doesn't respond to reach outs.
Another person told me they know people who were there for the incident, so….make of that what you will.
But if these guys got into a fracas, well, that would have been a mega departure from the mood they shared earlier. I'm thinking that the rumor mill manufactured a beef…But…maybe the smartest thing would be to run with it, set up Davis versus Broner, it would be the most buzzed about fight for Tank to date.
