Supposedly every fighter in the card will be Mexican/of Mexican descent so they'll be leaning heavily on that to keep this from being a complete disaster.

Mike Coppinger is reporting that Gervonta Davis might be moving up to 140 to fight Mario Barrios, which doesn't make any sense to me. Outside of generational, transcendent talents, moving up two weight classes never works out. I know that Davis has had a few fights at 135 (even still holds a belt there), but he's essentially a junior lightweight, and not a big one at that. He's a short armed 5'5 former featherweight. For comparison, the top fighters at 140, Josh Taylor and Jose Ramirez, are 5'10. Mario Barrios is 5'10. Davis is not a superelite, A+ type of fighter who can consistently overcome a 5 inch height and reach disadvantage. Additionally, 130-135 has a slew of potential big fights for Davis: Ryan Garcia, Shakur Stevenson, Oscar Valdez, Devin Haney, Teofimo Lopez, Vasyl Lomachenko, etc. By comparison, 140 - especially once the Taylor/Ramirez winner assumably moves up to welterweight - will be pretty bereft of talent. Maybe Teofimo Lopez moves up there soon, but he's not there yet.

We also know that once someone moves up a couple weight classes, they don't move back down. Adrien Broner and Mikey Garcia were the last two examples we have of fighters doing this kind of thing, and they had their careers essentially derailed permanently through doing it.

Davis has had documented weight struggles and doesn't seem particularly disciplined in his personal life. This move doesn't seem like a good omen to me for his future in the sport.

He was never going to stay at 130 but I'd be surprised if he didn't try to come back to 130 to fight one of the other young guys there

For what it's worth, depending on the rest of the card, the fight maybe need to do a tenth (or even less) of that to considered a success.

They should've have made it the undercard to Teofimo Lopez - Kambosos. Add some ~1,000 viewer/day Twitch steamer vs a moderately famous TikToker and you've got gold baby

1.6 million bought Tyson Jones, so probably 2mil know what it is. But yeah, this probably won't do 1/5 of the next Paul bros spectacle.

i mean if itís hard to make weight, youíre crushing the competition, and thereís more money in a vacuum fighting at a higher weight class, i could see why

itís still phenomenally stupid and if youíre having that much trouble making weight you should consider retiring, but still

The Jake Paul-Ben Askren card has been finalized. Regis Prograis vs Ivan Redkach and Antonio Tarver vs Frank Mir are official. A fight between some type of English business dude named Joe Fournier (who is 8-0 in pro boxing against absolute garbage) and Colombian reggaeton singer Reykon, who appears to have no prior amateur or pro fights to his name, rounds out the card.

EDIT: Regis Programs

The Joseph Parker one had been rumoured for some time, and his name was the one mentioned when the idiots got busted. Even taking into account his limitations, I guess it does explain the sudden decline in Parker's performances as a boxer.

The best part is he was alleged to have used "joeboxerparker" as a username on social media apps to arrange the drug purchases.

So this Thriller Jake Paul Vs Askren just added a weird fight

10 - 0 (against cans) millionaire nightclub owner turned boxer vs reggaeton artist 'Reykon'...

Which seems utter madness, because this Reykon kiddie has 0 fight experience, and looks tiny in comparison. The beef started in a nightclub.
