Gervonta Davis vs. Frank Martin: Predictions, odds, how to watch lightweight title bout

Must read

A pair of undefeated titans will go head-to-head for the WBA Lightweight World Title. Gervonta “Tank” Davis will defend his title and outstanding record against Frank Martin.

Davis enters this fight with 29 wins, 0 defeats, and 27 knockouts. It’s tough to find a better resume than that. He’s coming off an impressive seventh-round victory over Ryan Garcia in April 2023. Saturday will be Martin’s first title shot. Despite an impressive 18-0 record with 12 knockouts, he’s definitely lacking in the power department compared to Davis.

Given Davis’ longevity, unprecedented power, and proven track record in title matches, most people aren’t giving Martin much of a chance. But that’s why the fights happen. Here’s everything to know about Saturday’s fight.

Predictions for Davis vs. Martin:

Pavan Sharma, MSN: Davis to win

Sharma writes, “Given Davis’ superior record, championship pedigree, and most recent impressive win over a highly-touted opponent, we predict Davis will likely emerge victorious in this undefeated fight clash. Davis’ wealth of experience and his drive to maintain his undefeated record.”

Timothy Bradley: Martin is too lacking in experience to win

Bradley says, “I worry about Frank, too, where you have a guy [Gervonta Davis] that is comfortable, and he doesn’t mind playing catch-up,” Bradley continued. “See, that’s the thing. You don’t realize that. [Davis] is an apex predator for a reason because he sets traps.”

Errol Spence Jr.: Davis to win

When speaking with Fight Hub TV, Spence said, “Tanks going to put up a fight. He’s a great fighter, but I feel like Frank’s definitely going to take it.”
