Lomachenko’s comeback, Davis-Garcia fight and Andre Rozier’s tough prediction


Recently, there have been many rumors that at the end of the year, top American lightweights will meet in a face-to-face confrontation – WBA World champion Gervonta Davis (27-0, 25 O) and eternal challenger Ryan Garcia (22-0, 18 KOs).

Top mentor Andre Rozier shared his thoughts on the favorite, and also talked about how the balance of power in the division will change when Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko (16-2, 11 KOs) resumes his career.

“Gervonta will win with a rout, –
sure rosier. “Yes, I think he will knock out Garcia. Ryan’s chances? He needs to rely on what is bestowed by nature – growth, arm span. That is, he needs to keep the opponent on the jab, add 1-2 hooks, 1-2 body shots. Approximately this is how he should act, and not all that he shows now. I think he needs to calm down and throw punches more prudently. I am sure that all this would help him become better. In the last fight, he relied more on the jab, was not as wild in punches as before. He did a great job and looked better than I expected.”

It seems that Rosier considers the best fighters in the division not the absolute world champion Devin Haney, but Davis and Lomachenko: “Without a doubt, Vasily remains one of the main boars in this weight. What would a Lomachenko-Davis fight look like? Tactical, super duper strategic. They are both one of the best fighters in the world. We would see all these attack angles, speed. It would be very interesting. I would like to see this fight. Who would I bet on? I have a rule that if all parameters are equal, then you need to bet on youth. For that reason alone, I would have to choose Gervonta.”

In the end, Rosier decided to play it safe a little: “I’m not saying that this particular factor will be decisive. And if I had to make the final choice, then my mind might tell me something else. But in any case, it would be just a fantastic fight.

Meanwhile, the reviewer ESPN Timothy Bradley said: Not Lomachenko and not Davis, but another boxer is the biggest threat to Haney. Promoter Eddie Hearn, in turn, named the best in lightweight.
