Davis dedicates Saturday, May 28th Showtime PPV fight against Rolando Romero to slain brother, Josh Carroll, a victim of gun violence, with Patrick Carroll
— Gervonta “Tank” Davis
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK , USA, May 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Current WBA (Regular) lightweight champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis is widely known as Mayweather’s protege and has held the world titles in three weight classes. In the last year, the undefeated world titleholder has kept a painful secret. His older brother Josh Carroll was a victim of gun violence and was viciously slain in Baltimore, MD during a shootout on June 17th, 2020. Carroll would be 32 years old today. The much-anticipated fight that is on track to become Barclays Center’s highest-grossing Boxing event will be dedicated to Davis’s brother, Josh Carroll.
Billionaire Real Estate Mogul Patrick Carroll, an avid boxer and a fan of the sport heard Davis’ heart-wrenching story of his brother’s death. He also learned that he and Davis’s brother shared the name Carroll and immediately knew he wanted to help with the dedication. Coincidently Davis’ brother was working as a real estate investor and hoping to reach mogul status at the time of his death. Carroll was touched by all the similarities and chose to partner with Davis by financially supporting his fight night and by having “CARROLL” appear on Davis’ boxing patch to commemorate this event.
Davis’s heart has been broken by his brother’s death and he’s been unable to articulate it until now. (Exclusive quotes) “I loved my brother and it’s hard for me to talk about. Patrick Carroll has the same name as my brother and also is in real estate, so when I heard about this opportunity, I knew I wanted to partner up.”
“I’m proud to have the name Carroll on my shorts because it’s my brother’s name too. So I’m happy to be working with Patrick Carroll.”
“I can’t bring him back, but I want people to remember him. I hope that the name Carroll on my shorts for this huge fight will allow his legacy to live on.” And here are quotes from Patrick Carroll too: “I have always been a Davis fan so knowing my participation has helped him to bring attention to his brother’s senseless death, mean’s a lot to me.”
“When I learned Davis’s brother who was killed, held both the same name and had goals to be a real estate mogul, I wanted to be involved in bringing Josh Carroll’s passing to light. I knew I wanted to help make this dedication happen. “
