Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis is back in action on December 5th to face Isaac Cruz in a lightweight showdown where Davis aims to collect his 24th knockout in 25 fights.
Davis (25-0, 24 KOs) last appeared in June when he stopped Mario Barrios in a 140-pound contest last June. He was originally set to face Rolando Romero but sexual assault allegations against his opponent forced him out of the fight. In his place steps in Isaac Cruz.
Cruz (22-1-1, 15 KOs) is unbeaten over the past five years with victories over the likes of Francisco Vargas and Diego Magdaleno. He’s known for bringing the fight to his opponents but will he be able to withstand the massive power of the fighter affectionately known as “Tank?”

Gervonta Davis VS. Isaac Cruz Preview
Gervonta Davis defends his WBA lightweight world title on Sunday, Dec. 5 against Isaac Cruz at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This will be Davis’ third WBA lightweight title defense since he won the vacant title in December 2019.
This will be the first time since June 3, 2016, that Davis will not be fighting on a Saturday night. His last non-Saturday bout was on June 3, 2016, against Mario Antonio Macias. This will be his first time fighting on a Sunday in his career.
This past June, Davis won the WBA super lightweight world title via an 11th-round TKO against Mario Barrios. Davis jumped up 10 pounds in weight and dethroned one of the best 140-pound champions in boxing. Davis proved that his power was too much for Barrios to handle, despite Barrios having a significant height, weight, and reach advantage over Davis.
In this fight against Cruz, Davis will be fighting at 135 pounds as a championship weight for the second time in his career. Although Davis does not have as much experience as a lightweight as other lightweight champions do, his explosive knockout power makes him the scariest lightweight in the division.
“Tank” Davis (25-0, 24 KOs) has stopped his last 16 opponents in electric fashion. He has been able to carry his punching power up with him in weight, which is a scary sight for his opponents. If he was able to finish a previously unbeaten junior welterweight champion, then he will be able to stop almost all of the lightweight division.
For the Dec. 5 main event, Davis was originally scheduled to fight Rolando Romero, but Romero was forced off the card due to a sexual assault allegation. Cruz was selected as the replacement opponent in early November and had just over one month to prepare for the biggest fight of his career against Davis.
Davis vs Cruz Pick
I think if you’re fired up from the Kambosos upset a week ago cashing as a +650 underdog in the same division and thinking lightning can strike again, you’re praying that Cruz can land a big hook as Davis is entering the pocket – a bit of a lucky punch.
That said, I don’t see that happening, and quite frankly, this fight likely isn’t going along at all. Cruz just doesn’t have the speed nor is his footwork strong enough to confuse Tank. Ultimately, Davis will put a flurry together early and end the show.
Davis vs Cruz Odds:
The lightweight division was on full display last weekend when Australian George Kambosos upset Teofimo Lopez to become the unified champion. Now the weight class’s heaviest hitter is back in action as Gervonta Davis defends his WBA lightweight strap against Isaac Cruz.
These two men will headline the card on Sunday, December 5, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, and can be seen on Showtime PPV. When it comes to Davis vs Cruz odds, it is the champ, Davis, who is the massive favorite.
Online sportsbook Bovada has the Davis vs Cruz betting odds, setting Gervonta as the sizable -1400 favorite and Isaac the +700 underdog. This means that you would need to put up $1,400 to profit $100 with a Davis win, while a $100 winning wager on Cruz would net you $700.
