Preview: Gervonta Davis vs Isaac Cruz
Who is Gervonta Davis
As the titles start to become unified under the best of the best, the Alvarez’s of the world are likely going to have to step out of the comfort zone of their division. For Davis, he’s established a basecamp as a champion in two weight classes already. In his last fight, he was the smaller boxer when he took down Mario Barrios in June for the WBA super lightweight title. Before that, he’s been dominant as the larger fighter at super featherweight, which he vacated in order to step up. On Sunday night, he’ll be the larger athlete again, standing over an inch taller than Cruz, and with a 6.5-inch reach advantage. This goes to say, Davis may be comfortable anywhere.
Who is Isaac Cruz
For Cruz, at 23 years old, this is his first title shot. After working his way through the ranks in Mexico, he started taking on America in 2019. Davis is a tough draw, as the experienced 27-year-old southpaw has established a reputation as a knockout boxer, winning 24 of his 25 bouts with a finish. Though his last two fights have gone the distance, Cruz has power himself, as displayed in his 15 career knockouts. His ability to get the decisions, however, should show Davis that Cruz isn’t likely going away quickly. Davis can turn a fight in an instant once he starts gaining momentum. Cruz will have to prevent that swing from happening, or knockout Davis himself to earn the title.
