Keyshawn Davis did his best to let a matchup between himself and Floyd “Kid Austin” Schofield Jr. marinate. Both fighters are in their early 20s and neither has grabbed a world title as of yet. So, naturally, Davis vs. Schofield feels a bit undercooked. However, after watching Schofield take care of business this past weekend, Davis wants that fight to happen as soon as possible.

“A fight with Kid Austin needs to happen in 2024,” wrote Davis on his social media account.

The wins have been adding up nicely for Schofield. While most fighters have struggled with activity, the 21-year-old managed to make four appearances. In his most recent outing, he seemingly caught the attention of Davis.

In less than two minutes, Ricardo Lopez Torres was kissing the canvas on four separate occasions. Following his first-round stoppage win, Schofield (16-0, 12 KOs) banged his gloves together, jumped onto the top ropes, and let out a roar.

His year wasn’t quite as active, but Davis racked up back-to-back wins of his own. Technically, it should’ve been three.

On October 14th, at the Fort Bend Epicenter in Texas, Davis (9-0, 6 KOs) eked by Nahir Albright via majority decision. But, just a few weeks after his win, he was informed that his latest victory would be changed to a no-contest.

Marijuana, which is legal in most states, remains illegal in the state of Texas. In addition to his victory being overturned, Davis was also issued a 90-day suspension, putting an axe to his originally planned date against former champion, Jose Pedraza.

Once his suspension is formally lifted, Davis doesn’t appear to be interested in facing Pedraza anymore. Instead, he would like to put his energy into making a matchup against Schofield a reality.

Unsurprisingly, Davis backs himself against anyone. A showdown against Schofield is no different. With that said, Davis does believe they can create beautiful violence in the ring together.

“I think it will be legendary.”
