Davis versus Cruz is part of a huge weekend for lightweights. On Saturday, WBC champion Devin Haney will take on former 130-pound champion Joseph Diaz Jr. live on DAZN.

Davis and Haney are two of boxing’s hottest stars. Whoever has the more impressive showing this weekend could be next in line to take on George Kambosos, who delivered one of the biggest upsets of the year against Teofimo Lopez Jr. last weekend.

It won’t be easy. Unbeaten five-time world champion Davis will take on Cruz, who is undefeated in his last 18 fights. Cruz was a replacement for Rolando Romero, who had to bow out due to multiple sexual assault accusations. But many boxing experts consider Cruz to be the tougher fight.

Still, Davis is a huge favorite. The champ is a –1200 favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook. Cruz comes in as a +750 underdog. With a win, Davis, a protégé of Floyd Mayweather Jr., could head into 2022 as boxing’s fighter to watch as he moves up the pound-for-pound rankings.

The Staples Center (soon to be the Arena) will play host to a lightweight contest that’s sure to excite boxing fans from around the world. Gervonta “Tank” Davis will take on Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz in a 135lb. bout. Can Davis win his 15th straight contest by KO or stoppage? Or will Cruz end that impressive streak? Find out this Sunday, only on Showtime PPV.

On a rare Sunday night (Dec. 5), Showtime PPV presents a lightweight main event from Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA between WBA “regular” lightweight champion Gervonta Davis (25-0, 24 KOs) and Mexico’s Isaac Cruz (25-1-1, 18 KOs).

Davis is returning to 135 lbs after stopping Mario Barrios in an entertaining contest up at 140 lbs. Last time we saw him at lightweight, he sensationally knocked out Leo Santa Cruz in October 2020. Cruz is replacing Rolando Romero, who is facing a criminal investigation following multiple sexual assault accusations became public. Davis is known as one of the hardest punchers in the sport, but Cruz is an aggressive fight who has power in his own right, albeit not in Gervonta’s league.–177464647/–177464647/–177464647/–177464647/–177464647/–177464647/–177464647/

Davis is the heavy favorite but we just saw Teofimo Lopez lose to George Kambosos last week, so absolutely nothing is guaranteed and especially with all of the recent changes to the lightweight division over the past year or so.

The Showtime PPV broadcast starts earlier than normal at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT. Expect the main event to start around 10:30 PM ET/7:30 PM PT but this depends on the length of the three undercard fights. It’ll cost you $75 to watch this show!

Can “Tank” remain undefeated?

Perhaps the most dangerous man in boxing returns on Sunday as Gervonta Davis takes on Isaac Cruz in a lightweight showdown from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Davis (25-0, 24 KOs) looks for his 16th consecutive knockout coming into the contest. “Tank” returns after moving up to 140 pounds and stopping Mario Barrios in the 11th round. People in and out of the sport wanted Davis to face either Ryan Garica, Devin Haney or Teofimo Lopez. Instead, Davis’ team led by former pound-for-pound great Floyd Mayweather Jr. chose Rolando Romero. But Romero was pulled from the fight due to sexual assault allegations. And the hard-hitting Cruz stepped up to the plate.
