Though ‘El Azteca’ has an edge over ‘Tank’ with just two additional fights under his wing, Davis is way ahead of Barrios in terms of finishes. Until now, Davis has battered a whopping 23 of his opponents through T/KO. On the other hand, Barrios has 17 wins via T/KO.

Though Barrios has enjoyed a magnetic run in the game, he still hasn’t remained in the limelight like Davis. Additionally, ‘Tank’ is one of the most terrifying young prospects who has entertained a vast audience with his high-class performances.

Hence, a fight against Barrios will be the toughest test for Davis. Until now, the latter has kept himself on his toes and he will look to be at his best against a bigger and more experienced opponent, thus presenting ‘El Azteca’ with an equally stern test.
