Davis/Nunez, Hooker/Ramirez, And Farmer/Frenois Fight Picks

Published

on

July 27: Baltimore (Showtime)

  • Title fight:Gervonta Davis(21-0) vs. Ricardo Nunez(21-2), 12 rounds, for Davis’ WBA junior lightweight title- I want to start off by saying that I am intrigued by this clash due to the fact that Nunez has heavy hands and I am curious to see how Tank reacts to the heavy blows. I hope that Nunez can make it a real fight to see Tank bank in some rounds, however, Tank doesn’t strike me as the type of fighter that is fine with letting his opponent hang around. I see Tank Davis blitzing Nunez with a vicious uppercut and will then jump on Nunez to stop him by TKO in the 7th

July 27: Arlington, Texas (DAZN)

  • Title fight:Maurice Hooker(26-0-3) vs. Jose Ramirez(24-0), 12 rounds, WBO/WBC junior welterweight unification- This has fight of the weekend written all over it and one that I have been looking forward to seeing it unfold. This is one of those 50/50 flip a coin pick’em fights, so in saying that it’s a tough task in picking a winner AND actually feeling good about the pick you just made. For Hooker, Hooker will be in a great spot if he can utilize his jab as not only a ruler but as a primary weapon in controlling the distance and tempo of the fight. And as for Ramirez, Ramirez must double his jab and move towards the inside to work Hookers’ mid-section to force Hooker and catch Hooker with something wicked in close exchanges. Give me Ramirez by Split Decision.
  • Title fight:Tevin Farmer(29-4-1) vs. Guillaume Frenois(46-1-1), 12 rounds, for Farmer’s IBF junior lightweight title- No need in me romancing this one, give me Farmer to outbox Frenois by Unanimous Decision. Farmer is just too quick, sharp, and too much of a puzzle for Frenois to deal with.
