Christmas Eve, December 24, is when Gervonta Davis converted to Islam, which marks a pivotal moment in his newfound religious and personal path.

Gervonta Davis isn’t the only well-known boxer who has converted to Islam and changed his name. The most well-known fighter in the history of the sport was, in fact, a devout Muslim named Muhammad Ali. This was evident in his famous fight against Ernest Terrell, who insisted on calling Muhammad Ali by his birth name, Cassius Clay, upon the issue of Ali’s renaming himself.

One of the most dreaded heavyweight boxers of all time, Mike Tyson, is another well-known Muslim boxer. Even though Tyson converted to Islam before to his 1992 prison term, he never took on a Muslim name in an official capacity. Rumour had it, though, that he had taken on the name Malik Abdul Aziz.

But not every Muslim boxer is the greatest of all time. Like Gervonta “Tank” Davis’s contemporary, Devin Haney is a Muslim fighter who has never lost. Rumors even exist that the two will fight one another in the future.

Haney is 31-0, while Gervonta Davis is 29-0. Their next opponent, Ryan Garcia, is someone ‘The Dream’ aspires to defeat since ‘Tank’ recently defeated him.
