    Walsh needs to be careful when he reaches in. Don't like how his chin floated up against Klimov.

    You're right, Walsh drags his punches a bit. He'll get clipped by Davis in the 6th round. KO. It'll be an entertaining fight while it lasts.

    does walsh hit hard enough to keep davis off him, or is he slick and conditioned enough to keep turning davis, get him out of position and potshot him to break his rhythm and timing.

    imo gervonta doesnt move his feet enough/well enough ala broner; pedraza when he boxed made him look bad, and he will take breaks...i don't know if walsh can take adv of those things

    Gervonta is more athletic than Walsh, and more mobile when he wants to be. He seems to plant his feet by choice.

    Lol I was thinking of the same exact reference.
    I get Floyd is selling the fight and using his name to sell 2 not so known fighters. But I kind if hate how he steals the spot light from his guys. Eventually thats going to backfire.

    I think this is a decent matchup. Walsh is a good fighter but I think he'll come up short, points or late stoppage.

    Mayweather is a fckin embarrassment, but he won't steal the limelight from the 2 guys fighting; very few people give a shit about him over here

    Walsh looks half decent and I could see a decent technical boxer with good footwork giving Davis problems at this point in his career. Hard to see Walsh winning outright, but I think Davis could have some slow rounds. We'll see, though. Dirrell/Uzcategui and even Barthelemy/Relikh are decent fights, as well.

    Maybe so. I thought it seemed like he faded a bit against Pedraza and took a lot of shots that would have been an issue against a bigger puncher.

    He'll win this fight but I doubt he's stays undefeated at the elite level for long.

    He let a few nobodies wind him up.
    He has the composure of a teenager

    Uzcategui is going to be in Dirrell's face all night, making look at the ref for help.

    .

    Strange to miss by such a small amount? Did Davis look drained at the weigh in, or just a mistake on his own scales?
