Get set for Saturday’s lightweight scrap with a big Garcia vs. Davis prediction and the latest betting insights from our friends at FanDuel.
For the uninitiated, it would be a bit of a puzzler to conceive of a boxer who fights at 135 pounds who nonetheless bears the nickname “Tank.”
Such is the case of Gervonta Davis, a Baltimore bruiser whose prodigious power and ability to deliver highlight reel finishes has earned him global buzz as the Mike Tyson of the fight game’s lower weight classes. And on Saturday, the undefeated star heads down the Beltway to Washington, DC to defend his secondary WBA world championship against similarly unblemished challenger Héctor Luis García.
Suffice to say that a highly partisan crowd will be fully expected to give Tank an extra push on fight night that he may or may not even need.

Davis vs. García Prediction
As David Kaestle writes at TheDuel:
While there is almost no point in betting Davis on the moneyline, you could get some value by taking him to win by decision at +420. García‘s last three fights and wins have all come by decision, so he could be playing the long game with Davis too, trying to pick his spots and come away with a technical-based victory.
Another way to bet this without paying the astronomical moneyline odds is to bet the fight to not go the distance, which is still -450, but much better than the -1450 moneyline odds.
