Gervonta Davis hits back at boxing legend Mike Tyson for claiming the only similarity between them was getting in trouble with the police

Gervonta Davis insists he has ‘more skill’ than Mike Tyson after the boxing legend recently dismissed comparisons between them.

At the peak of his powers, Tyson was a destructive force in the heavyweight division and ruthlessly dispatched his opponents to become the undisputed champion.

He said, “I don’t know. Maybe just get in trouble with the law. Other than that, no. »
