Love: I want Josh Taylor and Gervonta Davis

“This is a dream come true,” said unbeaten Cleveland welterweight Montana Love (16-0-1, 8 KOs) after his vicious TKO7 over former world champion Ivan Baranchyk (20-3, 13 KOs), “I’m in training every day thinking about and visualizing this moment. I want to thank Ivan for giving me this opportunity and helping us give the fans a great show. We’d been working on that uppercut the whole time during training. The game plan was to move and box him and make him miss. We knew that eventually he was going to open up.

“Strap me up. We’ve been working hard and now it’s my time. I want Josh Taylor and Gervonta Davis. Line them up and we can make it happen, as soon as possible.”

At the time of the stoppage, Love was ahead 69-63, 69-63, 70-62. It looks like both Baranchyk and Jose Zepeda left a lot in the ring after their 2020 Fight of the Year.

  • IMO, Montana Love got the better of Gervonta Davis in sparring. Would love to see them in an actual fight.

  • Love vs Davis is a must watch fight if it’s made.. Not sure it will happen soon though..

  • Didn’t see the fight, but saw the knockout highlight. Its a shame to see a fighter lose that punch resistance as Baranchyk has since that loss to Zepeda. Reminds me of Curtis Stevens after he got anesthetized by Dave Lemieux. Hope Baranchyk finds something else to be productive at that doesn’t involve swapping punches at world class level.

  • Calm down kid. You beat a shot fighter, so keep Josh Taylor’s name outta your mouth.
