The absolute favorite, according to bookmakers, is Davis. However, undefeated Luis Garcia will try to surprise the boxing community and make the first sensation of the year. Although it is hard to believe in the miraculous win of an outsider.
“Tank” began his performances in the professional ring in February 2013 and managed to hold 27 fights in nine years. Having gained 100% of victories, Gervont completed 25 fights ahead of schedule. Davis moved up to lightweight in December 2019. In this weight class, the Maryland native fought five times. Yuriorkis Gamboa, Leo Santa Cruz, Mario Barrios and Rolando Romero were knocked out by the southpaw from Baltimore, and Isaac Cruz from Mexico was defeated by unanimous decision.
In the next confrontation, the Baltimore fighter will meet with an experienced and uncompromising opponent. Nevertheless, the “tank” has excellent technique and striking power. So the American must get another “scalp”.
Hector Luis Garcia
“Android” held 19 confrontations among professionals, in which they won 16 times (10 by knockout). Also, three fights involving a boxer from the Dominican Republic were declared invalid. Having started performances in 2016, Hector has not yet lost. In the last six fights, Luis Garcia defeated Ronal Ron, Anvar Yunusov, Miguel Moreno Gonzalez, Isaac Avelar, Chris Colbert and Roger Gutierrez in turn. Only twice the native of San Juan de la Maguana finished ahead of opponents and four times was stronger by the referee’s decision.
The upcoming battle is the most significant for the “android” in his career, so the mood of the Dominican must be outrageous. Nevertheless, Hector has no special advantages over the titled opponent.
The opposition of left-handers is not unreasonably expected to be exciting. “Tank”, despite the fact that it is inferior to the “android” in growth, slightly wins in the length of the arms. In addition, the favorite of the battle is younger, but he performs more among professionals, which means he is no less experienced. It should also be noted that the American has a crushing knockout blow, as evidenced by the percentage of KOs of 92% versus 62% for the Dominican. In general, on paper, Gervonta looks better in all aspects and with a high probability the Baltimore guy will not experience difficulties in the ring by winning ahead of schedule.
