Former HBO analyst Max Kellerman, now working for ESPN, believes that the talk about the entry of American double-weight champion Jervonta Davis (24-0-0, 23 KO) into the “pound-for-pound” rating is so far unfounded.
“Yes, he is one of the most exciting in boxing, but to say that he is a pound-for-pound … It’s just ridiculous. He fought Yuriorkis Gamboa, who has already been beaten more than once. And Gamboa held out until the end.
As for Santa Cruz, he is a great fighter, a champion in several weights, but he is too small. Despite the fact that Davis scored “Knockout of the Year”, he consistently missed. And this is almost the best knockout I’ve ever seen. He is insanely explosive, but with all this aggression, he is extremely open to counterattacks. People compare him to Mike Tyson, but they forgot how much Tyson dominated, “Kellerman said.
