Potentially the highest-grossing fight of the year – the fight in the contractual weight limit between American punchers Gervonta Davis (28-0, 26 KOs) and Ryan Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs) – has been agreed, but will not take place on April 15, but a week later. Fight will be in Las Vegas (USA).
In the meantime, the first rumors appeared about who will perform at the stars as an opening act.
Columnist Salvador Rodriguez
claimsthat as part of the show, the interim IBF welterweight champion American Jaron Ennis (30-0, 27 KOs) will box. Presumably, his opponent will be the mandatory challenger Venezuelan Royman Villa (26-1, 24 KOs). In fact, this was discussed last month.
Mexican lightweight (up to 61.2 kg) William Cepeda (27-0, 24 KOs) is also expected to participate in the show. So far, nothing is known about his options. The fighter is ranked 4th in the WBC rankings, 3rd in the WBA and 6th in the WBO.
Yesterday, Mike Tyson named the favorite in the fight between Gervont Davis and Ryan Garcia, and a little earlier, he funnyly reacted to rumors that “Tank” knocked out during a heavyweight sparring.
