In the sixth round against Isaac Cruz, Gervonta Davis broke his hand
In the post-fight interview, Gervonta Davis revealed that he had broken his hand in round six. And hence couldn’t secure what would have been a signature knockout victory against Isaac Cruz.
“I was going to stop him in the sixth, but I broke my hand early in the round. So I couldn’t fight like a southpaw,” Davis said. “If I would have went straight right he’d fall over.”
However, two other experts also shared different opinions on what led ‘Tank’ to stay on his feet. After being dropped twice in the sixth round.
In an exclusive interview with Glenn Rushton, Davis’ strength and conditioning coach, he revealed that it was a combination of factors—including Cruz’s movement. That played a role in ‘Tank’ failing to drop him again as the Italian champion chose to cling on for dear life instead of going all out offensive against Davis.
“In this particular instance, I believe that Gervonta was caught off-guard by the awkwardness of Isaac Cruz’s southpaw style,” Rushton said. “Cruz is a master at throwing piercing jabs from his unusual angles and rarely gets hit clean because of it.”
Tank said that he injured his hand in the sixth round and still tried to throw with a broken one.
“I hurt my left hand in probably the sixth round but I’ve got to throw it. I have to go get it checked out. It’s shaking but it is what it is, that’s what comes in the sport.”
