Gervonta "Tank" Davis attacks again!  The 27-year-old WBA lightweight world champion will put his world championship belt on the night from Sunday to Monday (German time) in Los Angeles against the Mexican Isaac Cruz.

Gervonta Davis vs Isaac Cruz

“Tank” Davis is the clear favorite before defending his World Championship title against Cruz!

Gervonta Davis (25-0-0, 24 Ko’s) at the age of only 27 has already managed to claim an important world title in three different weight classes.  The US southpaw has now decided to contest his future in the lightweight.

Most recently, "Tank" Davis made a convincing statement when he stopped the until then undefeated Mario Barios in the eleventh round in June.  Now the WBA lightweight champion will be flying his fists again on Sunday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (California, USA)!

After Rolando Romero, who was originally signed as an opponent, was unable to compete (due to legal problems), 23-year-old Isaac Cruz (22-1-1, 15 Ko’s) is now available.  The Mexican has recently made several convincing appearances in the USA.

However, the big names are missing in the professional balance of the soon-to-be World Cup challenger, for whom it is the very first World Cup opportunity.  Experts therefore only estimate Isaac Cruz to have outsider chances.  In the betting shops, defending champion Gervonta Davis is a 14-1 favorite.



UFC268: Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington 2

Opening November, UFC 268 brought to the world MMA village two matches for the title, both of which were rematches.  

At welterweight, defending champion Kamaru Usman entered his fifth title defense since taking the throne against rival Colby Covington.  

This is the second encounter since Kamaru Usman's technical knockout victory at the end of 2019.

In the main match, strawweight queen Rose Namajunas entered the title defense with former king Weili Zhang - who just lost the title at UFC 261 in April.

In addition to two pairs of titles, the competition of two Top 5 lightweight candidates Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler was also added to increase the attractiveness of the event.  

Besides, boxers Shane Burgos, Frankie Edgar, Al Iaquinta, former Kickboxing world champion Alex Pereira are also notable names of this night.

UFC 268 is led by a charming rematch between defending UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and his 2019 knockout opponent, Colby Covington.

Entering the 5th title defense in his career, Usman faces the task of keeping 14 consecutive wins in the UFC, 18 consecutive victories on the MMA floor. And the one who stood in his way, was once again his rival "Chaos" Colby Covington, the only boxer who had ever matched the champion in nearly 5 rounds. 

In the main match, women's strawweight champion Rose Namajunas will defend her title after her second title at UFC 261 against the same former champion she just claimed, Weili Zhang. With the first match going so quickly with just over 1 minute, the rematch is expected to have more remarkable developments than before.


Boxing: Fury vs Wilder

Next weekend the time has come: WBC world champion Tyson Fury will play his world championship belt against ex-champion Deontay Wilder (live on DAZN from around 4:00 am).  It is the third meeting between the two heavyweight giants. 

Boxing: Fury vs Wilder

"All good things come in threes," as a well-known saying goes.  The fact that the third match between Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 Ko’s) and Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 Ko’s) takes place at all should be far more than just "good" at least for all boxing fans.  The only question is, who will have the better end on his side at that third encounter?

After the first fight, there was no winner - but neither was there a loser.  The second time it was Tyson Fury who not only secured the world title, but was also able to put the last critic in his place with a convincing TKO victory.  So now the third attempt to close the chapter "Fury vs. Wilder" - ideally, of course, with a clear victory.

But what makes this approach so interesting?  For one, both are heavyweights as they are in the book.  With their two meters tall, both protagonists cannot be overlooked.  On the other hand, there is the fascinating constellation "Boxer vs. Fighter".  The supposed boxer role was attributed to Tyson Fury right from the start - and rightly so.

It is also obvious that Deontay Wilder has earned the part of the knockouter.  The 35-year-old Wilder, who won 41 of his 42 wins by knockout, is considered one of the toughest puncher in heavyweight history.  But at the second fight, on February 22nd last year, the roles were reversed!  This time it was the "Gypsy King" who threw his adversary into the ring dust.
