Gervonta Davis calls out Lomachenko: 'It's Time'

Gervonta Davis says he’s ready, willing and able to get in the ring with Vasyl Lomachenko — and even gave message to the boxing superstar, “I think it’s time.”

Tank is coming off a ferocious 2nd round victory over Ricardo Nunez — improving his record to an impressive 22-0.

Davis has generated a LOT of hype over the years, but fans are still waiting for him to get in the ring with a true top-flight opponent … which brings us to Loma.

31-year-old Lomachenko — the unified lightweight champ — is widely regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. He’s 13-1 and hasn’t lost since 2014.

Just like Davis, Lomachenko fights around 130 pounds … so, fans would LOVE to see the two stars face off.

So, when we spoke with Davis about it … Gervonta told TMZ Sports he’s all the way down to scrap.

“Of course [I’m interested in the Loma fight]. Just as a boxing fan, ya know, top guys fighting each other. Definitely looking for that. Maybe the beginning of 2020.”

Davis is only 24 — but he tells TMZ Sports he’s “old enough to take on the challenge.”

“I think I have enough skills. I’m maturing as a fighter, as a person. I think it’s time.”

And, his message to Vasyl …

“Just keep winning and someday we will get in there. We will get in there for sure.”

Fingers crossed!!!
