Former world welterweight champion American Keith Thurman shared his forecast regarding the upcoming fight between his compatriot Jervonta Davis and Mexican Leo Santa Cruz.
“I’m not really sure about the winner in this fight. Leo loves to hit a lot and stuff like that. Gervonta has strength, so if Santa Cruz stops moving and stops in front of him, then he will immediately have problems. People say Davis is having a physical challenge, if that’s the case then maybe for Leo it will be an easy fight. Still, Gervonta is a skilled fighter, so there shouldn’t be an easy fight.
Based on my history and how I was raised in boxing, we always lean towards strength. We like to maintain power. So I would give Davis the advantage in this fight. Yet this is a very competitive confrontation. I’m sure the fans will love it, ”Thurman said.
Recall that the fight between Davis and Santa Cruz will take place on October 31st in San Antonio, USA.
