This is a good fight for Davis as he stays busy leading up to his clash with Ryan Garcia in early 2023. Hector Luis Garcia is a game challenger with a pretty solid skillset, so this should be a good fight to catch if you’re a Davis fan.

Gervonta Davis: Davis is a very heavy-handed counterpuncher who employs many of the defensive techniques of Floyd Mayweather, who until recently was Davis’ promoter. His quick reflexes, great power, and sharp technique have enabled him to sit relatively comfortably at multiple ranges in the ring and put down most opponents with single shots.

Hector Luis Garcia: A crafty southpaw who employs his range and boxing technique, Garcia is in many ways the opposite of Davis. Winning primarily by volume and decision, Garcia is a classic rangy southpaw technician, not looking to engage unless he has an angle. He has the tools to make this a long night for Davis, so long as he stays on an angle and behind his jab.

Prediction: Davis by KO. I think Davis’ power and defensive technique will end up spelling trouble for Garcia.

January 28th: Artur Beterbiev vs Anthony Yarde

Artur Beterbiev: A destructive power puncher through and through, Beterbiev is one of the two top dogs at light heavyweight, and it's clear to see why. Combining eastern European footwork with one-of-a-kind power, Beterbiev is a wrecking ball in the ring, the sheer risk-reward skew he creates often causing opponents to shell up and hesitate. It will be interesting to see how he stacks up against Yarde.

Anthony Yarde: Easily both the best puncher and best Boxer Beterbiev has faced so far, Yarde is a heavy-handed fighter with a solid jab and a devastating left hook. His one weakness historically has been somewhat predictable defense, But Beterbiev is also no defensive master. Yarde will use that excellent jab of his to try and keep Beterbiev from sitting down on his shots, and if Yarde can force a boxing match he takes this fight.

Prediction: Beterbiev by KO. I think this is an excellent fight and very close, but I give the nod to Beterbiev here based on his stronger chin and better ring control.

January 28th: Jermell Charlo vs Tim Tszyu

Jermell Charlo: Jermell is on a roll of solid competition and frankly does not get the credit he deserves. He’s an excellent champion with solid reflexes, good technique, and an absolutely brutal killer instinct in the ring that always creates exciting fights. I expect him to try and crack Tszyu with his jab before going in for his signature left hook to the body or his right straight down the pipe.

Tim Tszyu: A rising star and a genuine contender, Tszyu is a dogfighter with great stamina and huge output in the pocket. He has sometimes struggled to close distance, but he’s looked better in his last few fights and if he can get in on Charlo this fight will be much closer than people might assume.

Prediction: Charlo by Decision.I actually expect this one to go the distance, but I think Charlo’s ruthless style and his experience with elite competition give him the edge over the still green Tszyu.

January 21st: Glover Teixeira vs Jamahal Hill

Glover Teixeira: Teixeira is someone I will likely never call against again. He loves proving oddsmakers wrong, and he’s very good at it. Heavy hands, solid ground game, and plenty of veteran tricks backed by a granite chin make him the ultimate wildcard. And his forward momentum style is always a pleasure to watch.

Jamahal Hill: A solid up-and-comer with wins over Johnny Walker and Thiago Santos, Hill is a skilled striker with an agile fighting pattern that makes him uniquely suited to give the somewhat flat-footed Glover some issues. However, his chin has been cracked before so he will need to be on his game defensively.

Prediction: Teixeira by TKO.I meant what I said, Glover is easily one of the greatest wildcards in UFC history, and I for one am fully on the hype train.

January 21st: Deiveson Figueiredo vs Brandon Moreno

Deiveson Figueiredo: A solid submission artist and current flyweight champion, Figueiredo has only one loss on his record, and it’s to Moreno. He has incredible ground game, good if basic striking, and a pretty strong chin. 

Brandon Moreno: Moreno is a takedown specialist, and his last loss was to, you guessed it, Figueiredo. Current interim champion, Moreno is an excellent submission artist in his own right with very similar attributes across the board to Figueiredo, making this a really exciting match.

Prediction: Too close to call. I have no idea who wins this, and that’s why I’ll definitely be tuning in to watch it.
