Former four division world champion Mikey Garcia was impressed with the recent performance by Gervonta Davis, who jumped up to junior welterweight to pull off a stoppage win over unbeaten Mario Barrios to capture the WBA "regular" junior welterweight title.
Davis, who was considerably smaller when compared to Barrios, took a few rounds to get going.
He took full control in the second half, where he scored two knockdowns in the eight and then a third in the eleventh to close the show.
Garcia gave high praise to Barrios for utilizing his boxing ability in the first half.
In the end, Garcia felt Davis made the right adjustments to come away with a solid victory.
"It was a good matchup, a good fight. Barrios was fighting very well, I think he won probably the first four rounds, five, four out out of five rounds, something like that. He was boxing very well, I know the scorecards weren't reflecting that, but he was putting in a good performance," Garcia said to Fighthype.com.
"Tank showed his power, his strength, you know, landed some good shots, made some adjustments, started getting closer, closing the gap, and that's when he started hurting Barrios and he took care of business.
"Tank showed that he's got the power to hurt, you know, guys even at 140, so, you know, he did real good, congratulations, congratulations to Tank. He made the right adjustments and then secured the fight and won. Barrios being so much taller and with the longer reach, you know, it took him maybe a few rounds, I said I think four rounds, maybe five.
"But he started closing the gap and once he figured out the gap, the right timing, the right range, started turning it up and did some damage."
