Gervonta Davis, boxing’s knockout king, is returning to the ring! After his spectacular seventh-round KO over Ryan Garcia last year, Davis is now set to headline a PBC on Prime Video pay-per-view event. Davis is looking to make a statement. He recently inherited the WBA lightweight title after the former undisputed champion Devin Haney moved up in weight.

Standing in his way is the tough and resilient Frank Martin. Martin’s last fight was a close decision win, solidified by a dramatic 12th-round knockdown. He’s no stranger to taking on tough competition, with victories over Michel Rivera and Jackson Marinez under his belt. This would be a great battle between two southpaw boxers. Even the undercard fights of this event has everybody whispering.

Gervonta Davis’ boxing trainer Calvin Ford surprised the fans with stellar names for the main card of the Davis-Martin event via his Instagram story. Well, the first names that would sparkle the eyes of the beholder, besides the main event, are none other than that of David Benavidez and Oleksandr Gvozdyk. This would highlight the night as the co-main event, and this is the first fight of Benavidez at 175. Moreover, as per the WBC, the winner of this bout will go and face the winner of the undisputed clash between Artur Beterbiev vs. Dmitry Bivol.

The next in line is the rematch between Edwin De Los Santos and Jose Valenzuela. In September 2022, Edwin De Los Santos and Jose Valenzuela collided in a high-stakes battle that saw both fighters hitting the canvas in the second round. Despite the early setback, De Los Santos rallied and sent Valenzuela crashing to the canvas once again in the third round.

The next fight had David Benavidez’s rival Demetrius Andrade going against David Morrell. This might seem a bit anticlimactic since Morrell had been trying his hardest to land a fight against Benavidez, but now he will have to face his previous opponent instead. However, if he manages to win this fight, his chances of facing ‘The Mexican Monster’ will increase drastically. So it’s still a great opportunity for the boxer. It will be a jam-packed main card, as all these fights seem quite interesting and relevant. What are your thoughts about these undercard fights? Let us know in the comments section.
