Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis (17-0, 16 KO’s) vs. Liam ‘Destiny’ Walsh (21-0, 14 KO’s)Â
This Saturday Liam Walsh has the chance to derail some pretty significant plans orchestrated by Floyd Mayweather. The table is set for Gervonta Davis to rise up a level in the boxing world but first he has to deal with Walsh. Davis will be defending his IBF super featherweight title for the first time ever and on enemy territory nonetheless. Can he handle the pressure or will Walsh use this opportunity to cause a setback on the biggest stage of Â ‘Tank’s’ career?
Walsh is definitely a tough customer in the ring. The southpaw has been through some tough knockdowns but has shown tremendous resiliency. He has never tasted defeat and has a respectable 67% knockout ratio. Though some do ponder about his lack of fights. After all he is 31 and has just four fights more than his weekend foe.
With him you have to watch out for his straight right. He can drop people with it and the same goes for his right uppercut. He can be tricky to hit at times but not impossible. Walsh does some nasty work against the ropes and likes to target the body a lot. He puts his combinations together well and moves around in the ring with good IQ.
