When Gervonta Davis and Yuriorkis Gamboa clash for the vacant WBA Lightweight World Championship on December 28 at the award-winning State Farm Arena in Atlanta, they'll be making history in a long-underserved boxing hotbed that has hosted monumental fights featuring Hall of Famers Muhammad Ali and Evander Holyfield.

The Davis vs. Gamboa SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecast features two world title bouts and will be the first world championship event in Atlanta in more than 20 years.

Prior to December 28, the last world title fight in Atlanta was unified heavyweight world champion Evander Holyfield's IBF and WBA defenses against Vaughn Bean on September 19, 1998. SHOWTIME televised that bout live from the since-demolished Georgia Dome where 41,357 fans in attendance saw the Atlanta resident floor Bean in the 10th round en route to a unanimous decision victory.

Pascal always starts strong, if Badou can survive the first 6, then he’s gonna have a good chance to win. You need elite power to keep Pascal at a distance, can’t wait to see how Badou will handle this fight.…

I got Pascal knocking out Jack tbh. Pascal is doing what many don’t do nowadays, go for broke with haymakers and pop! You go 12 with Bivol having him respect the power or KO Browne as of late
