Report: Gervonta Davis set to defend 135-pound title against Frank Martin

Gervonta Davis reportedly has his next opponent.

The popular 135-pound titleholder and No. 2 contender Frank Martin have reached an agreement to fight on pay-per-view in late spring or early summer, ESPN is reporting.

Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) evidently has put legal issues behind him, which allows him to get back into the ring. He hasn’t fought since he stopped Ryan Garcia in seven rounds last April.

Martin (18-0, 12 KOs) also fought only once last year, defeating Artem Harutyunyan by unanimous, but close decision in July.
