The rising star of lightweight (up to 61.2 kg), American Kishon Davis (7-0, 5 KOs), after an extremely successful 2022, immediately undertook to popularize himself in 2023.
So, in one of the last
interview he, sorting out the situation at the top of his division, suggested that Lomachenko was old and Haney would run away from Stevenson.
Gervonta Davis also got a share of the attention of the top prospect.
“Well, his record is not impressive. It is what it is. If you look at lightweight now, you can see for yourself how cool this division is,” Kishon said. But when will he fight anyone? Yes, he had a crazy knockout against Leo Santa Cruz, he did a great job transitioning to 63.5kg when he stopped Mario Barrios. No questions. I mean, he doesn’t fight really tough guys, but he manages to make his fights interesting.”
Kishon also expressed the hope that he would fight against the failed rival Lomachenko. However, on the eve it became known that he would fight on April 8 with another opponent.
