6ix9ine Taunted Boxing Champion Gervonta Davis In Miami Last Month
Last month in a Miami stripclub, 6ix9ine also taunted boxing world champion, Gervonta Davis. He did so by throwing money in his section. Words were supposedly exchanged but nothing got to a point of being physical.
DJ Akademiks then reported that 6ix9ine is supposedly down to participate in an exhibition boxing match with Davis. Davis still hasn’t addressed that rumored proposition yet, though. That would certainly post huge numbers due to the entertainment factor of it and not for if 6ix9ine will actually exceed expectations.
