WBA вЂregularвЂ™ lightweight champion Gervonta вЂTankвЂ™ Davis (25-0, 24 KOs) weighed in at 134.5 pounds on Saturday at the weigh-in for his title defense against substitute opponent Isaac вЂPitbullвЂ™ Cruz (22-1-1, 15 KOs) for their fight on Showtime PPV on Sunday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Cruz 23, also weighed in at 134.5 lbs.
During the face-off, Tank gave the challenger Cruz a half-hearted push that resulted in both teams jumping in to separate the two fighters.It was a move out of character for Davis, 27, but it wasnвЂ™t unexpected.
They needed to create some buzz about their fight on Sunday night because a lot of the focus this weekend has been on tonightвЂ™s fight between WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney and Joseph вЂJojoвЂ™ Diaz Jr in their clash on DAZN.
Whether todayвЂ™s mini-altercation between Tank Davis and вЂPitbullвЂ™ Cruz will be enough to interest fans to plunk down $70 to order their fight on Showtime PPV remains to be seen.
вЂњIt was easy to cut the weight as normal.I used to eat a lot of junk food in training camp, but now IвЂ™m eating more healthy,вЂќ said Gervonta Davis to Showtime Boxing when asked whether it was difficult making weight.
вЂњIt didnвЂ™t really change that much. We always train hard,вЂќ said Davis when asked whether his training changed when his originally scheduled opponent Rolando вЂRollyвЂ™ Romero was replaced by Isaac Cruz.
вЂњI think so,вЂќ said Davis when asked if this is a fight that heвЂ™ll be able to show off his boxing skills.вЂњHeвЂ™s a come-forward fighter and I donвЂ™t want to just sit there and trade shots with him at the beginning of the rounds.
вЂњI think this is a fight that will show my tools and my footwork. That is a lesson to myself to keep me up on my game and keep me humble,вЂќ said Tank Davis when asked if he feels concerned about having a letdown against Isaac Cruz to avoid an upset loss like the one Teofimo Lopez experienced last Saturday night against George Kambosos Jr.
вЂњIвЂ™ve been in the position where Isaac Cruz is in now with the odds against him and I feel better when the pressure is on me.I think thatвЂ™ll keep me level-headed just to know where heвЂ™s coming from.
вЂњIвЂ™ve been there before and thatвЂ™ll keep me on my game as well. I think I perform better when IвЂ™m out there having fun. ItвЂ™s also business but I try to do stuff that I normally do every day,вЂќ said Tank Davis.
вЂњYeah, we got a fight on our hands. This ainвЂ™t going to be a walk in the park for Tank,вЂќ said Kenny Porter to Fighthype in reacting to the push from Gervonta during weigh-in with Isaac Cruz.
вЂњBut his [Gervonta] preparation has been tremendous, and I was there for Top Site Info the last month to see it every day.His preparation has been second to none, and IвЂ™m sure heвЂ™s going to be successful in this fight.вЂќ
