Baltimore star Gervonta Davis believes the respective styles of he and Isaac Cruz will make for an entertaining clash when they meet on Sunday in Los Angeles. 

WBA Regular lightweight title holder Davis was initially scheduled to face Rolando Romero, who was pulled from their December 5 date due to an ongoing police investigation into a sexual assault claim against Romero.

Mexico’s Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz will now face Davis this weekend at the Staples Center, with Davis predicting that their styles will make for an explosive main event.

“I’m happy and excited to be in this position, I’ve been working hard getting ready for this new opponent,” Davis said. “I know Cruz is going to come to fight. The fans are going to be the winners in this fight, because we’re both coming in prepared to be at our best. I’m ready to put on a great show on December 5

“Anything can happen in boxing, so I just try to stay on task. I’m always ready to step up to any challenge thrown my way and get the job done.

“This is a more interesting fight now, because we both come forward. This is going to be something great for the fans and another exciting night for the sport of boxing. May the best man win. We’re both coming with our ‘A’ games.

“He can say I haven’t faced someone like him, but he’s never fought anybody like me either. I can box and I can hit. We’ll see what he’s saying when he gets hit in the face.

“December 5 is going to be fireworks for sure. It’s going to be something you can’t miss. Don’t go get your popcorn or anything like that during this fight. This is another tough task, but this is what I’m made for.”
