How Davis Wins

We all Tank can bang with the best of them. His power and knockout instincts set him apart from other fighters at the 135-pound weight limit. And, as usual, his strengths put him in an excellent spot for a decisive win.

Davis is remarkable at fighting outside the pocket, stalking the ring and setting traps his opponent walks into. Martin is a willing participant and a good fighter, so he'll engage Davis. We could see a real good fight on our hands on June 15.

In the end, Davis is the more versatile boxer, and he can score a knockdown from all angles. Tank might take his licks in this bout, but a late-round KO is in the cards. 

How Martin Wins

Martin wins by keeping this fight in the pocket. He's a bully when he's in tight, and Tank isn't as elite as people think when his opponent puts him in a phone booth. Davis can defend, too, so it'll be up to Martin to make more with his opportunities. 

"The Ghost" boasts some quality technique and decent IQ, but it's hard to envision him coming out on top. He might bang Tank up a few times over 12 rounds, but Davis is more experienced and more complete as a fighter.

Gervonta Davis vs Frank Martin Pick

I'm betting on Davis to win. With the way boxing is, I can't imagine the judges let Martin win a close decision either. I see some pundits speculating Davis might take this the distance, but I'm not keen on that.

Tank has knocked out three of his last four opponents. I'll bet he delivers another big finish.

Pick: Davis by Knockout (TBD)
