Prediction,

This is a decent match up, two unbeaten records, one a top level hopeful, the other, untested, and unknown to most, should be interesting to watch.

You've got to love Gervonta Davis, he's a nice guy, he's a dedicated athlete, he has incredible talent, he has come through very hard times in his life, and with the guidance of arguably the greatest boxer of all time, he has become stronger from his hard times, but humble, and better and bringing the best out of himself in the ring. We have to take our hats off this this chap, he spent all the money he earned from the Liam Walsh fight, on his mother, he didn't have the best of upbringings, but he has forgiven, and he has helped himself, and others, to put the past behind them, and that is great. I think Davis is an outstanding boxer, and he will be a top 5 fighter in 5 years time, I think he can be a great role model for kids who watch boxing. A year ago, I had never heard of Gervonta Davis, and when I first heard of him, I look at his record, he had fought no good opponents at this level, at 22, he hasn't had a chance to mature yet, he was clearly a puncher, but who had he knocked out?, I didn't think Davis had much of a chance at all when he faced undefeated IBF super featherweight champion, Puerto Rico's Jose Pedraza. Davis showed blistering hand speed from the off, using his feet well, setting a high pace, sustaining it well, putting fast, sharp, accurate combinations together, showing great defence, and absorbing any punches he took partly due to the positivity of the fight which he was controlling. Davis was ahead after 6 rounds (5-1 on mine and the judges scorecards), before knocking Pedraza out cold in round 7 with a fantastic right hook. There were still a lot of questions surrounding Davis after the Pedraza win, it was one fight, Pedraza has been known to under perform, so Davis still had a lot to prove. A few months after winning his world title, Davis travelled to the UK, to take on undefeated Norfolk warrior, Liam Walsh. With Floyd Mayweather supporting his protégé all the way, fight week was very interesting, with Mayweather clashing with Walsh's brothers, there was a lot of publicity from the press conference, a conference in which many insults and even a few threats were fired. Walsh, I believed was very underrated, a step up from Pedraza, he had been waiting for a deserved world title shot for a long time, and had been very unlucky in missing out on opportunities in the past. I believed Liam Walsh was going to pull out.

Lost the rest of the first paragraph.

I know little about Francisco Fonseca, I know he's undefeated, he's Costa Rican, he has been in with a few half decent opponents I believe, but no seriously good, near top level opponents. I don't believe Fonseca is such a puncher, I don't he he great technical skill, I think he's a decent boxer, fast hands, fast feet, good at mixing it up from head to body, I've never seen him fight, but that is my assumption. For any unbeaten, unknown fighter, it is great to get an opportunity like this, I don't know what Fonseca's plans are, maybe he wasn't planning on competing at this level, and will simply try his best, maybe he has aspirations of being the best, whatever he's level he is on, this is a great opportunity for him.

I think Gervonta Davis will win this fight, and dominate throughout. I think the first couple of rounds will be quiet, with Davis out boxing Fonseca behind straight shots, having no trouble finding the target and evading most of Fonseca's thrown punches, and any shots he does land will bounce off 'Tank'. I think Davis will up the pace in rounds 3 and 4, beginning to hurt Fonseca to the body a little bit, continue to move, think and impress defensively, but throw punches, land more, and I think at the end of round 4, Fonseca's legs will buckle, he'll be hurt, and he'll take some big shots in the final seconds of the rounds. I think Davis will be patient, find his openings, box sensibly, but as round 5 goes on, he will raise the tempo, begin to beat Fonseca up, whilst Fonseca seems to be fading out of the fight. I think Davis will be all over Fonseca at the end of round 5, I think he will drop him twice, the second, on a body shot, which Fonseca only just manages to get up from, and Davis will be on the verge of stopping a defenceless, battered Fonseca. I think Fonseca's corner will do what perhaps the referee should have done in the last 20 seconds of the round, and take him out of the fight. With the scorecards all being 50-43, I think Davis will win a TKO (RTD) after 5 rounds.

I think for Gervonta Davis, this fight is about profile, which is good, it is a chance to perform on the stage on the undercard of a massive event, so there are going to be a lot of people watching, people always love a good undercard before a big fight which everyone has been waiting for and looking forward to. I think for Davis, it will be great for him if he can win well, impress, against a decent opponent, he might get some rounds behind him. If Davis was to lose this fight (which I think is extremely unlikely), then it would be a massive setback, I think it is highly likely there would be a rematch. A loss here for Davis, at 22, wouldn't ruin his career, but losing to a fighter of the calibre of Fonseca, would raise questions about whether or not he is anywhere near as good as Mayweather says he is, it may suggest he was overrated. If Davis wins this fight, as I'm 99% sure he will, and wins in a short, one sided fight, which lasts less than 6 impressive rounds from him, as I'm confident he will, then it will be good for his reputation, it will be another solid statement from him. It is always good for young fighters to stay active, and Davis fighting 3 times in 7 months is great, he's not going to be fighting this often in a few years, when he's fighting at a higher level, so it is just for him to fight 3-4 times a year at this point of his career, especially being a puncher, needing to get the rounds in. I think it would be good for Davis if Fonseca was able to last a few rounds in this fight, so he can really maintain his rhythm, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was to finish him in 2 rounds. I don't think it is bad at all for a 22 year old champion to fight three undefeated opponents on the spin, especially with all 3 of them being world title fights. I think Davis is doing everything he can to keep busy, everything he can to gain the experience, gain the maturity in the ring which no fighter his age, who has had under 20 fights could have, he isn't taking advantage of the fact that he has bags of time before he declines (probably 12 years) which is good. The Lomachenko fight is hopefully one we will see at some point, Davis and Lomachenko are likely to be the best in the 130 lb division, at 22, Davis isn't ready for a fight like that, with Gervonta valuing Mayweather's advice, he's not going to rush into a fight like that, but as the years go by, as his potentially future unbeaten record gets higher, and he beats more fighters at a certain level, and weight wise everything makes sense, then the Lomachenko fight could be one of the biggest fights out there, a solid win here, over Fonseca is 1 small step closer to having the experience to perform to his full potential, and it is at that point when I think the fight against 'High tech' should happen. Davis weighed in at 132 yesterday, disappointing, he has lost his title, he will have to compensate financially, but it is not the end of the world, 'live and learn', it is shame he won't be boxing for a title, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was to win that same belt back soon.

Davis missed weight, as of right now the fight is not happening. Fonseca and his camp are holding out for more money to go through with this fight. Davis really shot himself in the foot here by not bothering to make weight on such a big stage, and now TMT is gonna have to pay Fonseca and his team whatever they demand just so he gets to fight on this big stage. Terrible discipline and look for Davis, who pulled out and dusted off ole' Adrien Broner's old excuse that he's young and he had a chance to make weight but didn't care enough to try, and the belt's not that big a deal he'll get another one.

Once again you are the best Champ!

This is a complete showcase, unless Fonseca is hiding some devastating power no one knows about (TMT wouldn't have picked him as a opponent if he did) he has less than a 1% chance of beating Davis.

Total disappointment in this Gervonta Davis fight. I'm not a sure if the attempt to make weight took a toll on him, but he did not look a 100%.
Davis thankfully escapes with a victory against a solid and surprising Fonseca. The knockout was a rabbit punch, and it's outrageous Las Vegas did not review this knockdown.

rorschach's picture

Yep, Knockout came from a illegal shot, but this is Vegas and a Mayweather fighter so you know they are gonna do very little against the A-Side TMT fighter.

albertocastany's picture

It was funny to watch him narrate the knockdown....trying to justify it as legal LOL :)

Champion97's picture

It was legal.

Tank got the victory here, he got the job done, got 7-8 rounds behind him, boxed on the night of a great event, and I think he should just remember that, and put this fight down to experience, because it was not a good performance, it was entertaining, it was interesting throughout, you couldn't take your eyes off the action for one second, but what a (by his standards) bad performance from Gervonta Davis. I don't think this means much, I think in boxing, in a sport this challenging, a lot of fighters take an 'all or nothing' approach when they fight, it is very easy to lose that motivation just for one shaky night, I'm not saying that when a fighter like Davis misses the weight, that they by any means give up, in any way, shape or form, but maybe just temporarily lose that sense of perfectionism, I think that is what happened with Davis, and I think because he didn't have a title to defend, he hadn't done everything right, he felt like for this fight, he might as well just have fun, and why not? Fonseca couldn't hurt Davis, Davis was able to showboat a huge amount, look up at that screen every 5 seconds, and still win the majority of the rounds, and when he did catch Fonseca with a good shot which Fonseca wasn't really prepared for, it was over for the brave Costa Rican. I'm not sure whether or not Davis needing to move up to 135 was the factor, but he did not look right in this fight. I think this was just an off night, Davis, I believe, will be more impressive in his next fight than he was against Pedraza and Walsh.
