From Chris Williams: Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis wasn’t satisfied with what he saw out of IBF super featherweight champion Tevin Farmer (28-4-1, 6 KOs) along with his harder than expected 12 round unanimous decision victory over fringe contender Francisco Fonseca (22-2-1, 16 KOs) last Saturday night on DAZN in Madison Square Garden in New York. Farmer, 28, fought to conquer a fighter that Davis destroyed by an 8th round knockout this past year on August 26, 2017.
Davis completely dominated Fonseca from begin to complete before the fight was finally stopped. Fonseca gave Farmer a lot of issues in a fight that has been a tough one because of him. Farmer won the fight by the dozens 117-111, 117-111 and 117-111. He had been getting hit on a lot, and not appearing not quite as good as Davis did in ruining Fonseca this past year.
“Boring,” Gervonta Davis said on his social media site in commenting about Tevin Farmer’s performance against Francisco Fonseca past Saturday night on DAZN. I played together with him [Fonseca] . You want observe a murder? ” Davis thought to Badou Jack after he stated, “” I need to watch Gervonta Davis vs. Tevin Farmer.
Davis is right about him toying with Fonseca. It appeared to be Fonseca was under the strength of rsquo & Gervonta;s moans in the moment until it had been finished with, the fight started. Fonseca couldn’t even handle Davis’ power no matter what. Davis, 24, wants to fight with Farmer, however right now like a fight between them is possible, it & rsquo; s not appearing.
Farmer is fighting DAZN, whether Davis comes over into his stage to make the fight 29, and the manner he sees the game is. Davis is battling on SHOWTIME and with Mayweather Promotions. This can make it tough if not possible for a fight between Davis and Farmer to materialize. Some fights may ’t even get made. What that means is the boxing people might need to make their minds up predicated on how they perform against opponents.
Davis’ win over Fonseca has been fight and a far more one sided than Farmer’s. The one thing one may complete in watching Davis and Farmer beat Fonseca is Davis looks to be the better fighter of both straight today. Whether this changes in the near future is unknown. As Farmer is right now, he & rsquo; s not as busy, and rsquo & that;s bad news of course due to his livelihood. That ’ll shift later on. Otherwise, then it’s hard to assume Davis growing in to the boxer if he were more busy, and compared against the ideal that he would be.
“Loma and Tevin simply went 1 2 whole rounds together with people I killed, so what that makes them? ” Gervonta said in Vasyl Lomachenko’s recent 12 round decision win over Jose Pedraza and Farmer’s victory finished Fonseca.
Lomachenko beat on Pedraza by the dozens 117-109, 119-107 and 117-109. Davis would provide Lomachenko a lot of issues right now, and possibly stop him if this fight becomes left at the moment. The more Lomachenko begs for this particular fight to happen, the more inclined heor even rsquo;will lose to Davis. The two of them are going different guidelines. Lomachenko becoming more injury likely, and is becoming older. He’s also fighting in a branch that he’s not able to control like he did if he had been fighting featherweight and super featherweight.
Lomachenko doesn’t even have the punching power needed to control guys. He’s forced to overcome them by using his elevated volume hitting attack, and when you fight that way, you get hit a lot. Despite Lomachenko boxing longer, hersquo;s still getting hit much longer in lightweight than he did super featherweight due to the fighters being taller with more arms in 135 than they were in 130. Lomachenko has short arms, and that would handicap him against Davis, who has a two inch reach advantage over him in addition to his speed, youth and power advantage. If this fight is created 15, lomachenko could have a lot of issues against Davis. If they wait 2 to 5 years before the fight is made by them, Lomachenko likely loses by knockout.
“DAZN pays money,” Farmer thought to Fighthype. This ’s rsquo, a guy I &;m right today. In the event the fight happens, it happens. When it ’t, it ’t.”
It doesn’t even appear to be Tevin is going to be fighting Gervonta any time in the future if with how he’so discussing. Tevin’s promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing USA talks a lot about the way he would like to make the fight with Tevin, however this may be precisely the same promoter that has failed repeatedly to make a fight between his fighter heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and WBC champion Deontay Wilder. Hearn talks a lot about needing to make the Joshua-Wilder fight, but then he shows differently by offering Wilder a flat fee that amounts for a small proportion of what the fight will need in. In the long run, Hearn’s talking about needing to make such conflicts comes off as him looking for pay to grant the boxing people the impression that he would like to make the Joshua-Wilder and Davis vs. Farmer fight, but in reality it appears that he doesn’t even wish to make the fight.
’ The mad thing is I never heard this kind of thing where DAZN is paying all of the money, why do I proceed to show time to fight for nothing once I’m here together with DAZN earning extra money? It only don’t even sound right. Read between the lines.
The manner that Farmer is talking, he doesn’t even sound like a fighter which wants any component of fighting Davis. He appears like he doesn&rsquo. The punching power, foot rate, and the talent amount of Gervonta will have been a problem to get Tevin. He’SA good fighter, but he lose by an 8th round knockout six years ago to Pedraza, and he’s got a loss to Kamil Laszczyk. Allowed, those defeats took place a long time past before Farmer made improvements in his game, however it’s still difficult to see beating Davis using the manner that he’s still appearing. The gap between how Davis coped with Pedraza and Fonseca is radically different from what we saw from Tevin.
It had been a performance by Tevin, 28, past Saturday in beating Fonseca, but he still got hit far too much in winning this fight. In case Davis can hit on Farmer it & rsquo; s unlikely to end well for him. Davis hits way too hard for him to be in a position to property and he definitely will connect just as much if less on Tevin. However, he looks far below Davis in talent if had been a victory for Farmer. Farmer is a better fighter than Fonseca, however, not by much. Davis is another level than Fonseca.
