We have a fight! Undefeated three-time world champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis and four-division world champion Leo Santa Cruz both made weight for their blockbuster SHOWTIME pay-per-view showdown Saturday night with fans in attendance at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Two world titles will be on the line, the WBA World Super Featherweight title and the WBA World Lightweight title.
Both fighters appeared in excellent condition at Friday’s weigh-in. There had been much concern regarding Davis’ ability to make weight for this bout. But the Baltimore, Maryland, native moved his camp from his hometown to the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, Nevada, training for 15 weeks under the eye of long-time trainer Calvin Ford and his promoter and mentor, Floyd Mayweather. He weighed in under the 130-pound limit, coming in at 129 3/4 pounds.
Santa Cruz, on the other hand, looks to be in the best shape of his career. The modern Mexican great was absolutely shredded, weighing 129.5-pounds.
