On October 31, we will see the duel between Gervonta Davis and Leo Santa Cruz. The 32-year-old veteran fighter believes he knows the secret to defeating a young rival from Baltimore. In his opinion, Davis needs to be under constant pressure throughout the fight and then he will not be able to act in his usual manner. José Pedraza did something similar for several rounds. Despite the fact that he was knocked out, the fighter had local successes.
“This opportunity occurs only once in a lifetime. I’m going to do my best to win. When a fighter presses on you and throws blows, then there is no time to think and you can lose the thread of the fight from your hands. I know that Jervonta will try to counterattack me, so I also need to act smart, but I will use everything in my arsenal to make sure he is uncomfortable in the ring. “
“Davis is dangerous right up to the very last round, but we have been practicing defense against powerful blows. I just have to listen to my corner and stay calm. I will make history and, if I win, I will become the world champion in five weight categories from Mexico! I believe that the winner of this fight deserves to be among the top ten boxers in the world. This makes this fight even more important to me. “
