    We know the promotion and investment behind Davis

    Santa Cruz doesn't have dynamite to stop Davis inside the distance

    How can Davis possibly not win this fight?

    I feel LSC stands a fine chance. His punch output and his constant pressure could cause Tank some problems. No, Cruz wont stop Davis and I also think Tank wont stop Cruz. Tank will look to counter Cruz often due to Leo's output. I say Tank wins the fight by split decision. Leo is gna bring it and fight for his father and family

    Your comment makes no sense to me.

    Is LSC an inside fighter? NO
    A fighter who won to frampton has a chance vs anyone.

    I read your comment and for me it is something like "It is raining, how can you possibly buy a car?" :roto2rie: It makes no sense.

    I think LSC has a slim chance but a chance nonetheless.

    If LSC is able to avoid Tank's huge bombs and stay busy he may be able to outwork Davis in similar fashion to how Daniel Ponce De Leon outworked Adrian Broner.

    I also see Leo getting robbed under that scenario like DPDL was against Broner.

    Ponce De Leon, I thought also, deserved the W vs Brone

    With this being at 130, I certainly think that evens up the odds slighty some. I don't believe it was TOO long ago Davis missed weight on a fight? Can't recall specifics. But winnable for Leo if he can withstand Davis' bombs and box smart. Thinking how Mikey G beat Broner. But if I was a betting man, I wouldn't exactly count on it.

    im tired of these boxers having B side opponents moving up in weight to fight them, trying to get every little advantage they have against their opponent. What a joke.

    This is a repost of a post I made a few days ao.

    Since I picked Leo when the match was announced, yeah, I'm excited. I don't think Tank hits quite as hard as people think he does, and as we've seen with the Pedraza and even occasionally in the Gamboa fight, he freezes up and looks like a lost puppy dog when his opponent lands in combination on him, if there's anything Leo does well... it's landing in combination constantly, as in from beginning to end non-stop. Now don't get me wrong, I don't think he's going to be quite as active because he'll fear what's coming back at him, but Leo showed he's quite adept at making adjustments, remember the brilliant back foot counter punching display he put on against Carl Frampton in the rematch? So the idea that he beat Tank if can keep hi. at the end of his jab and tee off on him in combination while constantly on the move, it's not out of the question. I think Leo, who is yes... the smarter boxer, is going to adjust on the fly, maybe several times during the match, and do just enough to get the job done. So unlike most, I think it'll be at the very least, it'll be quite competitive, and if I'm unsure of an outcome, it makes me interested to see it.

    This is nearly as big of a mismatch as Loma vs Luke Campbell
    LSC is much, much better than Campbell but he's simply too weak and small.

    Cambell is a big 135lber, although a bum at least he had size lol

    Duckvonta by KO, but I think Cruz by KO is also possible if the little fat POS killed himself making 130.

    I think leo might surprise a lot of people

    I wouldn't be shocked if he won rounds and made the distance

    Tanks kind of still proving himself and leo is a very good fighter

    Size and power matter. I guess if tanks counters stifle leos activity hes done for

    You make very good points. I also am not counting LSC out he is certainly Tanks best opponent since Pedraza and if Tank can't get him out early he could be in trouble after the halfway point when he tires and his power fades Leo will get more confident and throw more combo's.

    I think that Leo is gonna display some respectful power in this fight. Davis will not walk through his shots and the longer the fight goes the more trouble he will find himself in.
