Showtime Boxing Night
What a night!! Last night, Saturday April 21, 2018, Mayweather Promotions and Showtime Premier Boxing Champions delivered us another exciting tripleheader at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn New York. Real Talk!
First up was undefeated Gervonta Davis (20-0, 19 Kos) who became a Two-Time World Champion by annihilating in a devastating fashion Jesus Cuellar (28-3, 21 Kos) to pick up the vacant WBA 130-pound World Championship Belt.
There ‘s level to this Boxing sh*t and this young shooter has been leaps above his competition to date. REAL TALK! It took Gervonta less than 3 rounds to dispose of his worthy opponent. Three knockdowns, heavy accurate power shots and spectacular movement, were just too much for Jesus Cuellar to handle. Gervonta came ready to rumble and performed, as a Champion should.
Gervonta is truly the present and the future of this Super Featherweight Division.
Congratulations Champ on being the youngest Champion to ever do it this good.
Who really wants it next??
In the co-feature, undefeated Jermall Charlo (27-0, 21 Kos) overpowered Hugo Centeno (26-2, 14 Kos) with some heavy combinations and stopping him in the second round. EASYYY WORK! It was a total mismatch with no resistance whatsoever. The Kid is a “Beast” inside that squared circle hands down. With this win Jermall became Interim WBC Middleweight Champion and now mandatory to Gennady Golovkin.
The Middleweight Division just got shook with this one cause your Boy Charlo is coming for that No.1 Spot.
Congratulations Champ you are officially a Two-Time and Two-Division World Champion on the come up!
In the main event, in a catch–weight at 144 pounds, Adrian “The Problem” Broner (33-3-1 24 Kos) and Jessie Vargas (28-2-2, 10 Kos) battled to a controversial majority draw.
Real Talk! This bout was tight from start to finish; Broner performed way better than his last two outings in my eyes. He looked fit strong and his energy was much better. Vargas was on point early but seemed to be fading as the rounds wore on. Dude is tough though he never gave up when sh*t got popping. Kid definitely got heart.
Personally, I think that if Broner would have let his hands go just a little bit more sh*t would have been clear to all three judges. That being said a draw is not a loss and both can do it over again if need be.
Bottom line this was a good night of Boxing.
