And should Davis decide not to continue his relationship with Mayweather, Hearn will bid to make Tank his latest marquee signing.

“Everyone is sort of high on emotion [saying], ‘What a great night we are going to stay working with you.’ But I don’t know.
“I don’t even know if he’s out of contract, you just don’t know.
“We’ll certainly be reaching out to him to find out if he is out of contract and if he is out of contract, he should listen to everybody because there’s going to be some really interesting offers out there for him.
“He’s one of the biggest stars in the sport. I’ve got a couple of mega fights we could make instantly for him, and I know our broadcast partner would do everything to make that happen.”

“We’ve done it plenty of times before.”
Davis, 27, knocked out the previously-undefeated Romero in the sixth round of their Brooklyn brawl last Saturday.
