Gervonta Davis wouldn’t love to make the mistakes the Former undisputed lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez did before his upset loss to George Kambosos Jr a weekend ago at the Hulu Theater in New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Lopez was so eager to knockout Kambosos and went out firing in the opening round but instead of a first round knockout, ran into a big right hand that dropped him and after 12 rounds saw the four belts in his possession get carted away by the Australian.
Lopez believed that he won and easily voiced out his opinion during the post fight interview but that didn’t stop Kambosos from taking away the IBF, WBC Franchise, WBA and WBO lightweight World titles.
Davis will be in the same position as Lopez on Saturday night, facing a huge underdog in Isaac Cruz but the WBA “Regular” Champion won’t be making a mistake, he believes Lopez in his fight against Cruz.
“Just a mistake he made,” Davis told TMZ, “Going in there thinking someone’s a slouch. That just taught me to never go in there thinking I won already and I didn’t.”
Davis has been exceptional in 2021 and in his last outing took the biggest risk in climbing up two divisions, eventually knocking out Mario Barrios in the eleventh to win the WBA “Regular” World title at 140 pounds.
On Sunday Night, Davis will ones again look to impress against a very tough and determined opponent in Isaac Cruz, whom he meets at 135 pounds.
“I’m looking toward going in there and putting on a show. It’s the biggest fight of my career,” Davis said.
“Just be ready. I’m ready. Give the fans what they want to see.”
Davis is presently not worried, disturbed or angry about the recent comments made by the new undisputed champion Kambosos, who claimed to be the best Lightweight in the World after his victory over Lopez.
“He’s supposed to feel like that. I mean, he just won,” Davis said. “Maybe he was in the heat of the moment.
“But, there’s a lot of lightweights to show him that he’s not the best.”
