That’s what’s at stake Saturday night when Gervonta Davis makes his pay-per-view debut and WBA lightweight title against Leo Santa Cruz’s WBA junior lightweight sling in a winning bout against the Alamodome in San Antonio , Texas. The highly anticipated bout puts Davis ‘thundering force, which has produced 22 KOs in 23 fights, against Santa Cruz’ incessant volume blast.
All week long, Davis, 25, has been saying that he has to prove something to himself to truly become the next pay-per-view king of boxing. A four-division world champion like Santa Cruz is considered Davis’ toughest test yet, and the Baltimore native knows it.
“Leo will come to fight, and it’s just about me doing what I do best,” Davis said during the press conference earlier this week. “You can see a fighter’s potential from the outside, but you have to see it actually come out in a fight to be believed. This is the position that I am in. Everyone knows that I’m great, I just have to show it. ”
Led by Floyd Mayweather Jr., Davis believes he will reach the throne as the next cash-per-view cash cow is within reach. Now it’s just a matter of making it happen.
“I have to get the job done first,” said Davis, “but also do whatever it takes to be the next pay-per-view star.”
Santa Cruz (37-1-1, 19 KOs) is missing enough artillery to shut down “Tank” itself as a major test.
“I’m up against the best fighter in the division,” said Santa Cruz. “If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best.” I have to compete against the best fighter. I wanted to challenge myself. I know this is a dangerous fight for me, but I want to test myself. ”
Will Davis ‘explosive force claim his biggest KO yet, or will Santa Cruz’ volume strike result in the first loss to Rolling Thunder that is “Panzer”?
