Garcia – Davis: analysis and prediction from the former absolute champion


Former de facto undisputed lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg) George Kambosos believes that his compatriot Gervonte “Tank” Davis (27-0, 25 CP) will have to be more active than he is used to.

This bout is tentatively scheduled at a catchweight (up to 61.6 kg) for April 15 in Las Vegas. But first, Davis has to beat Dominican Hector Garcia on January 7, and Ryan is also going to fight someone around the same time frame.

“Great fight. Ryan is a big lightweight, so I think the Tank will have problems with reach, distance and speed,” the Australian believes. “But then again, we know that Davis has punch, one punch power, but [для успеха] he needs to be active. He can’t just sit and wait like he’s done with others in the past.”

Kambosos is perplexed why these two needed to conduct “warm-up” fights before fighting each other.

Is an upset possible in the Davis-Garcia fight? Expert opinion

“Why not get straight to the point? I didn’t “tune in” when I fought Lopez, but immediately went against him,” George fumes. Haney, Lomachenko… These are all big fights. I just want boxing to be with the best against the best. Enough money for everyone. Sometimes these big fights involve way too fucking ego. But, in general, if you really want a fight to happen, like me and Haney, you will do it.

Lightweight, Kambosos says, “is the best in the world, it has the biggest names.”

“People want to see the best. That’s what boxing should be about. Because so many fights don’t happen. For example, Crawford-Spence. There is no way they can do it, because someone really does not want to lose their zero. It complicates things a lot,” concluded George in a comment.

There is also an opinion of a participant in the battle for the absolute about this fight. Ryan promises to screw Davis.
