Gervonta missed weight twice. I think he has one more try.

 We have a fight! @Gervontaa just made 130 lbs 90 minutes after his 1st attempt on the scales. #DavisWalsh

 Don't blame Gervonta Davis for this. His camp took too long getting here. Spence might have cut it fine too.
Travel is bad for weight cuts.

They can say whatever they want, but Davis looks extra chunky between fights. It's only a matter of time before he starts consistently missing or moving up to avoid missing weight.
post #2525 of 2959
At his age and being a professional, there's no excuse to cut it that close. Poor planning/preparation is what happened.
post #2526 of 2959
It happens. Sometimes the cut doesn't work out as planned. It happens even to the most professional of guys if you're trying to make the limit on the dot. Shawn Porter, Mayweather, etc. There's no room for error.

He made it within the time limit so it's all good. I'd have stronger feelings if he just paid his opponent off to come in heavier.

Dudes in here acting like cutting that weight is simple. Especially w/ long distance traveling.

Things happen in boxing but it's good to see he made weight on the third try. I would have been very disappointed if he missed weight and did not make it at all considering it's his first title defense.

FWIW he missed it by 2 oz's the first time, and an oz the second time.

Traveling shouldn't be a factor, again poor planning/preparation. He's hanging out with Floyd "Money" Mayweather. You mean he can't get to his destination perhaps 2/3 weeks sooner versus the week of? I've seen plenty of times before where a fighter uses that excuse after losing a fight across the pond. The ol "we got here this week, wasn't feeling good, couldn't adjust to the time difference." Then get there 2 weeks earlier instead of one. It's all excuses.

Never seen that dude Walsh before, but how was he undefeated. Had nothing for Davis

Really hope they make the fight with Tevin Farmer tho, I want to see how good this kid really is
post #2549 of 2959
^ being undefeated doesnt really mean ****. You could body uber drivers all day in casinos and rack up w's all day.

Im pumped for next weeks bout. This gonna be a real test for spence.
