Top prospect Davis demands fight with failed Lomachenko


America’s top lightweight (61.2kg) prospect 23-year-old “Businessman” Kishon Davis (7-0, 5 KOs) wants to drastically increase the level of opposition in order to slowly begin to remove questions about his readiness to fight at the highest level , including world championship titles.

Recall that in 2022, Kishon had three fights, in the last of which in December he won his first title – WBO Intercontinental – in profiring, beating the experienced Mexican Juan Carlos Burgos.

Now Davis demands to submit to him the Namibian Jeremiah Nakatila (22-2, 18 KOs), who surprised last year with a rather loud early victory over the Mexican ex-world champion Miguel Berchelt. After that, Nakatila was considered one of the main candidates for the role of the autumn rival for Vasily Lomachenko, but he eventually entered the ring against Jemaine Ortiz.

“Jeremiah Nakatila is the fight I want. In his last fight, he beat Burchelt hard. Tell him I want to fight him,” Davis said. – I think that now he is even more dangerous, because he moved up to lightweight. He is more comfortable here, he is stronger and more confident in himself. After I screw him, there will be no ifs, ands, or buts for Kishon Davis’ title ambitions.”

And here Davis is cautious with forecasts: Haney is afraid of Stevenson, and only a name remains of Lomachenko.
