Betting on Gervonta Davis
Total fights: 21

Davis is a man to be feared inside the ring, and he has all 21 fighters he’s faced before to attest to that. Davis, who is making his third title defense this coming weekend, has scored 20 knockouts in his career. In his last fight, he stopped Hugo Ruiz right in the very first round last February. Ruiz was no match to Davis’ power. Davis broke Ruiz’ nose in the opening round, and the latter was deemed incapable of continuing the fight. Prior to that, Davis defeated Jesus Marcelo Andres Cuellar in April of last year also via knockout. Davis’ body must be very fresh and free of any issues heading into his showdown with Nunez, as he’s barely been tested by his last two opponents. Combined, Davis has fought just four rounds in his past two bouts. It’s not only his power that’s causing problems for opponents. Davis also pairs his explosive hands with impressive speed. If anything, Davis also showed unbridled confidence in himself against Nunez, suggesting that he’s ready to make Nunez eat his words after the challenger said that he’s going to stop Davis.
Betting on Ricardo Nunez
Total fights: 23
Wins by KO: 19
Nunez is far from being a household name, but a win over Davis will be a tremendous boost not only to his value in the boxing scene but also to his rankings. Only ranked 32nd in the world, Nunez is out to prove that he’s more than a sacrificial lamb to Davis’ growing star. Nunez is in the middle of an exceptional stretch himself. The Panamanian has won all of his last 10 fights. While the overall quality of his opponents can be described as nondescript, it doesn’t change the fact that Nunez is a deadly power that has sent several fighters kissing the canvas. Nunez has 19 wins via knockout. He has stopped each of his past three opponents, including Eduardo Pacheco last April in Panama. Nunez, however, has yet to fight outside of his home country Panama, and the bright lights of America might turn out to be a bit much for him. Nunez needs to draw confidence early in his fight against Davis. He has to make Davis feel his power or at least land some nice combinations to make Davis think twice.
Davis knocks out Nunez in the fourth round.
