Had to really think about this for the prediction (between Pedraza points and David KO) and even then I pretty much guessed.

Experience is always key but there must be a reason they think Davis can handle the step up. If this was in 2018 I'd likely go Davis.

Still can't make my mind up

Thoughts?

I've never heard of Davis, I checked his boxrec record the other day and he's only been in one scheduled 10 rounder. This looks like a massive step up for someone so unproven

I like Davis but the styles favour Pedraza imo.

If Davis can get in the pocket long enough he can win, but i expect pedraza to keep it long and smother if he gets too close

Wont write Davis off though at 22 in his first step up.

Davis has been put in the deep end because of his attitude, he had it all in Vegas handed to him on a platter but he'd rather slum it out in Baltimore.

I'm picking him on points, maybe a few knockdowns too.

Before meeting Floyd Mayweather, Gervonta Davis was a fighter without a bank account still living in the tough inner city of Baltimore. After signing with Mayweather Promotions in early 2015, Gervonta quickly received the help he needed to immediately put himself and his family in a much better position. In fact, he may have received more help than any of the other new fighters that Mayweather has recently signed. First, Gervonta was advanced a substantial amount of money from Mayweather Promotions to move his mother from the hood to the suburbs so he could focus on his career and not worry about her well-being. He also received a $50,000 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon from Mayweather free of charge to help him get around. According to sources, however, Gervonta lied to the company and never moved his mother, instead leaving her in the inner city so he could pocket the money for himself. Gervonta also wasn't content with the Rubicon, so he traded it in for a more expensive Mercedes, adding a car note to the financial responsibilities of a young man that never had a bank account.

We're also told that when he joined Mayweather Promotions, Gervonta revealed that he signed multiple contracts with "some shady street dudes," who wasted no time in filing lawsuits. Fortunately for him though, the situation was quickly resolved and Mayweather Promotions was able to put his career on the fast track. His first fight under the Mayweather Promotions banner came on the undercard of Mayweather vs. Berto. Just 3 fights later, he was in a televised fight on Spike and one more fight after that, at 16-0, Gervonta is already in line for a title shot. The success was coming quickly inside the ring and Gervonta was wasting no time enjoying it. Mutual acquaintenances that also run in the Mayweather circle tell us that Gervonta was "spending money faster than he could count it." Apparently, despite having already made upwards of six figures, every time Gervonta fought, "he'd run through all his money within a week." We're told because of that, Gervonta was regularly asking Mayweather Promotions for advances of $5000. In fact, it go so bad that individuals within the company began questioning if he was doing something seedy with the money.

Nevertheless, Gervonta continued to receive help from Mayweather Promotions. They rented him a nice house in Las Vegas and filled it with $20,000 worth of furnitire so he could train in comfort as he focused on a title run. Gervonta, however, had other ideas. Sources say he decided to stop paying the rent, sold the $20,000 worth of furniture, and moved back to Baltimore to "stay in place where he was sleeping on an air mattress." Although it's unclear what prompted that decision, multiple people say that he wanted to "chase a girl out in Atlanta" and "hang out with Young Thug," who he met through Lil' James, a rapper signed to Mayweather's TMT Music Group. It wasn't long after that when Gervonta took to social media and, seemingly out of the blue, accused Mayweather of putting him on the shelf when a potential title fight with Jason Sosa fell through.

Err yeah, I suggest you watch him. Easy might be overplaying it but it''ll be a decisive Davies win for sure.
His 16 fights have been knock over jobs, there are levels in boxing hence the reason why Stephen Smith failed against Pedraza. You could be right maybe he's the goods but that remains to be seen.
