At the moment Jervonta Davis, nicknamed Tank, simultaneously holds the WBA Super titles in the category up to 59 kg and the WBA Regular in the weight category up to 61.2 kg. Now he will have his debut in the super lightweight division (up to 63.5 kg). And he will be titular.
Gervonta’s opponent will be Aztec Mario Barrios San Antonio native and reigning WBA super lightweight champion.
According to bookmakers, Gervont clear favorite of the upcoming fight. You can bet on his victory with a coefficient 1.22. Tank protégé of the legendary Floyd Mayweather Jr. It should be noted right away that Davis real puncher. The American won all 24 fights in the professional ring, of which 23 ahead of schedule.
For a long time, the level of opposition was not high enough to blame Gervonte. Last year, there were talks about a possible fight between Davis and Vasily Lomachenko, but after the unexpected defeat of the Ukrainian boxer in a fight with Teofimo Lopez, they died down.

On October 31 last year, Tank brutally knocked out experienced and strong Mexican Leo Santa Cruz in the sixth round. However, unlike Leo, Mario Barrios is much more powerful and physically stronger. He is also 11 centimeters taller than Davis. It can be assumed that in the upcoming battle, Gervonta will face real difficulties for the first time. True, Mario’s lack of experience in fights with left-handers speaks in favor of the challenger (Davis fights in a right-sided stance).
I would venture to suggest that the upcoming battle will last more than 8.5 rounds. You can make such a bet with the odds 2.09. But it should be added that it rather risky. Yet both Davis and Barrios are used to looking for their luck in attack and work as the number one.
