    A prepared Davis is too big and overwhelming for Santa Cruz. The last few fights for Davis haven’t been that impressive though. I wouldn’t be shocked if Santa Cruz could pull it off.

    Hoping for a KTFO victory by Santa Cruz.

    Showtime going with a PPV for initial (?) card back? I just can't understand the thinking behind that in this economy right now and both guys not being massive outside of deeper rooted boxing fans. Then again maybe they're just counting on all the boxing nerds being so desperate for a 'big match' they know we'll roll Quarters and recycle cans just to see one . I think Santa Cruz will put on quite the show v Davis and come out victorious.

    It looks like it will be at 130 instead of 135. If that’s true, it helps Santa Cruz a lot.

    Thinks it's for both by the looks of it . Really screwy and feels like an insurance policy for Davis should he blow the 130 weight which should be a side bet in itself. Good match regardless of being for two weight trinkets. They can take the belts and toss them in a smelter honestly, just ring the bell.

    I'm a fan of these multi belt/ multi weight fights, although with this 1 there seems to behind reasons behind it. Can Davis even make 130 anymore without compromising himself in the ring? I feel that having both belts on the line is kind of a safe guard in case Davis blows the weight. They can then still have the 135 title up for grabs.

    If Davis makes 130 and impresses it gives his team options where he doesn't have to step in against Loma. I don't see anything in Santa Cruz that will trouble Davis, unless he is drained. But having the incentive of being the 1st 5 division Champion from Mexico could be just the motivation needed to spring the upset.

    The time away will tell me a lot about his level of discipline. He has the talent, developing skillset, power, speed.

    None of that matters if he isn't disciplined enough to do what Floyd did his entire career; treat his body like a temple.

    We'll see.

    I hate to generalize, but Davis strikes me as a "Get by on talent/I only work hard when training for an actual fight", type of fighter

    I am not taking anything away from Davis but this is the most talented , busy fighter he is meeting to date. Even Davis wins, there's a chance that he will have a hard time because Leo enjoys boxing, it is not just a job to him.`

    Boxer Gervonta Davis says he’s ‘Okay with getting sick with COVID’ to please his fans

    Gervonta Davis is set to fight Leo Santa Cruz on Halloween

    While most athletes are doing their best to avoid getting the coronavirus, boxing superstar Gervonta Davis has recently confessed that he has no fears about contracting the virus while fighting in front of a live audience on Halloween.

    Recently, Davis told TMZ Sports that he’s looking forward to the upcoming match on October 31, when he will square off with Mexican warrior Leo Santa Cruz. And despite the current pandemic, he also says he refuses to live in fear of COVID-19 while doing what he loves.

    “I’m just only speaking for me as a fighter – I’m okay with getting sick to please the fans,” Davis said.

    “If I got sick and I find out that night, I’d be okay with it just knowing that I put on a great show. I did it in front of the fans. I did it for a cause. If I gotta take that hit, then you know I’ll quarantine by myself, and I did something great for the sport and things like that. I’m not saying I want that to happen but if that was to happen, I’m okay with taking that lick on the chin. Take that 14 days and stay healthy.”


    Davis’ promoter Floyd Mayweather has been trying to put together a fight between him and Ryan Garcia for years. Yet, despite interest from both fighters, it has yet to happen. When asked if he was still open to a possible matchup with Garcia if he gets through Santa Cruz, the 25-year-old said he’s completely open to it.

    “Me and Ryan could definitely happen next if both parties get on the same page and make the fight happen.”

    Davis again showing another example of not being the brightest bulb on the string of lights. Better worry more about an impressive showing against Santa Cruz to impressive fans rather than 'taking covid licks on the chin'

    I Have to agree with you. Last vid I saw of him was wearing a fur coat claiming he was the cash cow of boxing. Where did he get that from LOL!

    Davis needs to take this seriously as Lopez has embarrassed everyone by making his first defence against Loma.

    Davis piles on the weight between fights and obviously isn’t following Mayweather dedication to the game.
