Stephen Amy Smith explains why Jervonta Davis is an underdog against Teofimo Lopez


ESPN analyst Stephen Amy Smith, speaking about the prospects of American lightweight Jervonta Davis (24-0-0, 23 KO), said that he is an outsider in a potential fight with the leader of the division, compatriot Teofimo Lopez (16-0-0, 12 KO).

“The problem is that Davis fought against a fighter [Санта Круса], who could not harm him, and “Tank” understood this and moved forward. Without a doubt, Davis knows how to box and fight, he has character and is a champion. But when I think about Lopez and his performance against Lomachenko …

We saw his boxing skills, his defense, and we understand that he has enough strength in both hands. And even if he retreats, this does not mean that he is not hunting you. When I think of comparisons to Mike Tyson, I think of Teofimo. He would be my choice against the Davis Tank, Smith concluded.
