• Gervonta Davis beat Isaac Cruz to defend his WBA (regular) lightweight title
  • Davis can either go for his fellow world champions or Ryan Garcia as his next opponent
  • Davis is confident he's the "top dog" in his division

The list of Gervonta Davis’ next possible opponents is stacked.

Despite hurting his left hand midway through the fight, “Tank” still managed to successfully defend his WBA (regular) lightweight title against Isaac Cruz this past weekend at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

As expected, Davis unloaded a flurry of his signature power shots on Cruz. The Baltimore native’s work was enough to convince the judges to give him a unanimous decision victory over the Mexican.

Like most of his successful lightweight peers, Davis will now have to decide who his next opponent will be. F

ortunately for the undefeated champion, he has a wide array of options to choose from in the current 135-pound division.

Ryan Garcia

Among Davis’ contemporaries, Ryan Garcia seems to be the most intriguing fight to make given their past hoopla.

The pair has been very vocal about taking on each other, and it appears that it is still the case at present.

In fact, following Davis’ victory over Cruz, Garcia already made his pitch on social media.

“We all know Luke Campbell is better than all of [Davis’] opposition. Tank can’t beat me. He knows that and [Floyd] Mayweather knows that,” Garcia wrote on his official Twitter account. “I’m too fast and I got too much accuracy. C'mon, Mayweather, you can’t protect him forever.”

George Kambosos Jr.

Contrary to what most have expected, George Kambosos Jr. pulled off an upset win over the highly-touted Teofimo Lopez Jr. in their recent championship bout in New York.

Kambosos decisively beat Lopez to claim the WBA (super), IBF and WBO lightweight belts.

Needless to say, Kambosos has earned all the right to become Davis’ next opponent as well.

However, after witnessing Devin Haney put on an impressive performance against Joseph Diaz, Kambosos teased, “It comes down to what excites me the most.”

Haney needed no further introduction as he has also been as remarkable as Davis in recent times.

But after thumping Diaz, it appears that he is more focused on taking all of Kambosos’ belts.

"I'll go to Jupiter if I got to," Haney said. "Come on, George Kambosos, let's do it for all the belts.”

Davis, on the other hand, remains unfazed as he is certain that he’s on top of everybody else in his division.

"All those guys are easy work," Davis boasted. "I’m the top dog.”
