Tonight, at the State Farm Arena in HOT-lanta, Georgia, current WBA Super Featherweight champion Gervonta "Tank" Davis (24-0, 23 KOs) will attempt to move up two weight divisions and take on undefeated WBA "regular" Super Lightweight belt holder Mario "El Azreca" Barrios (26-0, 17 KOs) in the scheduled twelve round main event of a four-bout Showtime PPV broadcast!
 
Despite giving away five inches in height and reach, the KO artist from Baltimore is the betting odds favorite heading into the highly anticipated 140-pound match-up.
 
Let's look at the betting odds for Davis vs Barrios!!
 
According to the Book at BET-MGM, Gervonta Davis is currently listed as a 4 1/2 to 1 (-450) betting favorite, while Mario Barrios is cited as a very live 3 1/3 to 1 (+333) betting underdog.
 
This means that if you bet $100 on a straight-up Gervtona Davis victory, you'll win $122.22.  A $100 wager on a straight-up Mario Barrios win will payout $433.00!!
 
Let's consult expert trainer James Gogue when deliberating this fight.

Davis vs Barrios odds 
"I agree that Gervonta should be a 4 1/2 to 1 betting favorite heading into this evening's bout," the five-decade fight trainer recently stated on War a Week Radio. 
 
"There's a reason why Mayweather Promotions picked Mario Barrios for this assignment.  The kid from San Antonio is a good fighter who can hurt you with his right hand but doesn't do any one thing spectacularly in the ring.  Mario doesn't have exceptional footwork, hand speed or reflexes, and has many holes defensively."

"But Gervonta Davis will be moving up two weight divisions for this challenge. That's what is so intriguing about this contest. We really aren't sure whether or not Tank will carry his power up to Jr. Welterweight; especially against a tough kid who has a five-inch height and reach advantage."

Although Gervonta Davis boasts a spectacular 95.8% KO ratio, Mario Barrios has never been beaten and is always in superb physical condition.
 

Here are this evening's Davis vs Barrios odds per methods of victory according to the Book at BET MGM:

  • Gervonta Davis by KO TKO or Disqualification: -190
  • Gervonta Davis by Decision or Technical Decision: +333
  • Mario Barrios by Decision or Technical Decision: +700
  • Mario Barrios by KO TKO or Disqualification: +700
  • Draw or Technical Draw: +2500

Here is Coach James Gogue's final prediction for Gervonta "Tank" Davis and Mario "El Azteca" Barrios:
 
"No disrespect to Mario Barrios, he's a solid fighter, but he just can't match the talent or skill level of Gervonta Davis. Head trainer Virgil Hunter will have the kid in great physical shape, which will only extend the beating into the later rounds."

"Even though I like Davis to win decisively in this contest, I believe this fight has a 66% chance of going the distance, with a 33% chance to end in a KO."

"I predict Tank will win and, although a KO is within expectation, I see Barrios surviving the distance.

Prediction: Davis via UD 12
