Davis vs. Cruz — The Main Event Preview
Gervonta “Tank” Davis (37-0) is the WBA “regular” lightweight world champion and the WBA “regular” super lightweight champion, but the story of this powerful and exciting boxer is more than a couple of inferior titles. Davis has earned his nickname, because this Tank has had a cannon in his arms as he has won with powerful knockout punches time after time. Only one of his twenty six professional fights has gone to the judges scorecard for a decision. He’s become a star in the sport with his highlight reel finishes. His one-punch KO of Leo Santa Cruz last year became a viral sensation on social media, as the Tank ate hard hit after hit from Cruz before flattening him. Fans are always watching and waiting to see what amazing feat Davis will perform next.
As real as Davis’ talent and stardom are, his titles are unfortunately suspect. At lightweight, the WBA has a Super Champion in the newly crowned George Gambosos Jr. When experts debate if Kambosos is undisputed or not, they compare his belts to the one held by WBC champion Devin Haney, not Davis. At super lightweight, the undisputed champion is Josh Taylor, who holds the WBA Super Championship along with all the other belts too. No one discounts Taylor because everyone gets that these “regular” titles exist to call these title fights and collect sanctioning fees. It’s only a matter of time before Davis is a true world champion again, and the title holders need him more than he needs them.
Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz (31-3-1) is a top ten lightweight boxer and a very brave man who deserves credit for what he’s stepping into. Cruz was not the original opponent announced to fight Gervonta Davis in 2021. Davis was supposed to face interim champion Rolando Romero, but he was removed from the fight after serious secual assault allegations were made against him. That may seem unfair given the serious charges and accusations Davis has faced for many things including domestic violence, but it is what it is.
Cruz is not going to throw away this shot, and he should be ready for it. After years of fantastic fights in his native Mexico, Cruz has won a few big step up fights including his most recent win over former world champion Francisco Vargas in June. Cruz has shown power of his own, beating Diego Magdaleno in just 53 seconds back in 2020. But still his best chances against Davis would be to hold on tight and box the fight of his life for 12 rounds, hoping for a miracle on the cards. But no upset is impossible in this sport; just ask George Gambosos Jr.
