Along with his shoulders affected by gold, George Kambosos Jr. was satisfied that he would undoubtedly cross paths with pernicious knockout puncher, Gervonta Davis.
As of now, after all, the 2 have remained out of one another’s approach. Kambosos, after ripping away the WBA, WBO, IBF, and WBC “Franchise” light-weight titles from Teofimo Lopez, entertained the concept of going through Baltimore’s Davis. In any occasion, as Devin Haney bellyached, the newly turned 30-year-old acquiesced to his pompous calls for.
Though he was assured in his skill to sully Haney’s file, Kambosos would go on to lose back-to-back contests convincingly. Now, as the previous unified champion makes an attempt to rebuild, he lately determined to absorb the sights as Gervonta Davis made his profitable return to the ring.
In entrance of a file crowd in Washington’s Capital One Enviornment this previous weekend, Davis displayed persistence earlier than waltzing out of the ring with one more highlight-reel-worthy knockout towards Hector Luis Garcia.
Whereas the top outcome was a lot to Davis’ liking, Garcia fought him on largely even phrases all through. Within the eighth, nonetheless, the 31-year-old Dominican ditched his preliminary box-first recreation plan in lieu of an all-out firefight. That aforementioned eighth spherical proved to be his downfall as Davis landed the fight-ending blow earlier than the sound of the bell.
Although the previous Olympian remained on his ft, cognitively, he confessed that he was unaware of his environment. Kambosos, admittedly, anticipated Davis to handle enterprise in explosive fashion.
The Australian although, acknowledges that Davis has the type of one-punch KO energy that may bail him out of a jam. However, as he continues to up his stage of competitors, Kambosos wonders what the reigning secondary titlist at 135 kilos will do if he comes throughout a foe that received’t merely crumble beneath his relentless blows.
“That’s the factor with Tank,” mentioned Kambosos to FightHype.com. “Sure he’s bought that extraordinary one-punch energy that stops individuals and takes them out however he can get away with it now however the larger caliber fighters will be capable to take them pictures.”
