Undefeated boxing star Gervonta Davis is putting in the work at this time for his upcoming mouth watering fight with Mexican warrior Leo Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz as well as being one of boxing’s genuine, good guys, is a heck of a fighter to put it mildly.

A four-weight world champion, the 32-year-old battle hardened acclaimed warrior will represent an acid test for the young Davis.

The 25-year-old Baltimore native has been tearing up the sport in recent years with his knockout power and precocious boxing skills.

Evidently, a journey so far that has been conducive to steadfastly building a strong fan base.

He and his handler Floyd Mayweather will have heightened senses around how dangerous Santa Cruz is however.

He’ll be coming to win and will stop at nothing to do so.

Caring little about Davis’ future.

He’ll want to put a stop to that momentum and it will be up to Davis to prove how good he is.

He is looking sharp in sparring ahead of next month in preparation with Mayweather watching closely:

Indeed, the body shots could be well needed to try to slow down the relentless Santa Cruz.

What a fight in store next month.

The fight will headline on Showtime pay per view on October 24th.
