Mario Barrios vs Gervonta Davis Predictions & Tips


Gervonta Davis can keep his perfect record intact in his super-lightweight.

Davis was a wrecking ball during his time at featherweight and the added weight could add to his power.

If Mario Barrios cannot stay switched on for the full 36 minutes, he could find himself looking up at the lights. 

  • Gervonta Davis boasts a perfect 24-0 record
  • Gervonta Davis has won 23 of his 24 fights via knockout
  • Gervonta Davis has knocked out each of his last 15 opponents
  • Gervonta Davis combines good combinations with great stopping power
  • Gervonta Davis may need several rounds to knock out the biggest opponent of his career
  • Mario Barrios is not a hard man to hit
  • Mario Barrios’ aggression could leave him open to big punches

Mario Barrios Form


Mario Barrios goes into this fight with a perfect 26-0 record that features 17 wins by knockout.

However, it would not be unfair to say that Barrios does not have any truly notable names on his record.

The toughest test he has faced so far came in the form of Batyr Ahhmedov in September 2019, and he passed it with a decision win.

Barrios has fought just once since then though, stopping little known Ryan Karl in six rounds last October.

Gervonta Davis Form


Gervonta Davis boasts a flawless 24-0 record as he prepares to make his super-lightweight debut.

Making that record even more dominant is the fact that he knocked out 23 of those 24 opponents.

Davis won the IBF super-featherweight belt with a seventh-round stoppage of Jose Pedraza in January 2017.

He successfully defended the belt against Liam Walsh, but failed to make weight for his next defence and surrendered the belt despite stopping Francisco Fonseca.

Davis needed three rounds to stop Jesus Cuellar to win the vacant WBA (Super) title and defended it by stopping Hugo Ruiz and Ricardo Nunez.

‘Tank’ then claimed the vacant WBA (Regular) lightweight title by stopping Yuriorkis Gamboa in the final round of his next outing.

He then retained that belt and added the WBA (Super) super-featherweight title by finishing Leo Santa Cruz in the sixth round last October.

Verdict

Davis tore through the opposition at super-featherweight and if his power translates he will be a serious threat at super-lightweight.

Barrios is no slouch and should pose a few problems, but this looks like good match-making for Davis as he enters a new weight class.
