Before the fight, Madonna seemingly tried to keep a low profile while Tory held a conversation with the paparazzi, sharing his predictions on who he thought would win. He said he believed Gervonta would win in five rounds, however, he said he had “faith in the underdog.”
Peep the clip below:
Nothing really screamed “dating” vibes to us. More like, “look who I’m with – take a picture of me.”
It appears Tory and Madonna squashed their IG beef from a few months ago. In December 2021, Madonna called out the Canadian artist on Instagram, accusing Tory of sampling her 1985 hit single “Into the Groove” without permission for his own track, “Pluto’s Last Comet.”
As for Tory’s felony assault case, his trial is set to begin September 14th. He’s facing charges of felony assault and carrying an unregistered firearm. If convicted, he could reportedly face up to 22 years and eight months in prison.
Other celebrities in the audience for the fight included tennis star Naomi Osaka and her rapper boyfriend Cordae, rapper Trippie Redd and “Good Morning America’s” Michael Strahan:

Madonna’s teenage son – David Banda – channeled his mother’s style, wearing a red and white stripe dress, which is a piece from the collection between adidas and Gucci, set to launch June 7th. The pop legend wore a similar dress in 1993 to the premiere of Sleepless in Seattle alongside Rosie O’Donnell.
By the way, Gervonta won the WBA World Lightweight Championship against Rolando.
