Re: Gervonta Davis v Mario Barrios 6/26 Showtime ppv
This fight turned out to be more entertaining than I expected.
Barrios was taller and used his superior reach to win the early rounds but a lot of this was due to Davis looking for single big shots and not listening to his trainer who said target the body.
Davis did well in the 5th round but was behind by the 8th round when he knocked down Barrios twice with a southpaw right hook and then again with his big left hand counter.
Davis then took over the fight and ended it with a brutal body shot in the 11th knocking Barrios down and referee stopped it moments later with Davis landing a further barrage of punches.
Officially Davis was ahead of all 3 judges which makes me suspect they were going to give him the decision regardless of what happened in the fight.
Davis did not look impressive at the weight and would lose to the top fighters.
Floyd was trying to be the centre of attention again and undermined Davis trainer.
Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
