PPV.COM's Jim Lampley's June 15 Davis vs Martin and Benavidez vs Gvozdyk Preview Analysis

PhilBoxing.com





Legendary boxing journalist Jim Lampley returns to PPV.COM (which does not require a subscription) to co-host his popular and exclusive viewer chat, in real time, on PPV.COM's crystal-clear HD live stream of the upcoming boxing event headlined by undefeated superstars Gervonta "Tank" Davis and David "El Monstruo" Benavidez in separate title fights, this Saturday, June 15, beginning at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. A three-division world champion, Davis (29-0, 27 KOs), from Baltimore, Maryland, will defend his WBA lightweight world title against the WBA's no. 2 world-rated contender Frank Martin (18-0, 12 KOs), from Indianapolis, Indiana. Fresh from a brutal stoppage victory of previously undefeated former two-division world champion Demetrius Andrade, Benavidez (28-0, 24 KOs), from Las Vegas, Nevada, will move up in weight to challenge former WBC light heavyweight world champion Oleksandr Gvozdyk (20-1, 16 KOs), who fights out of Oxnard, California. They will be battling for the vacant interim WBC light heavyweight title. Priced at $74.99, the stacked four-bout pay-per-view event will emanate from The MGM Grand Garden Arena, which will be hosting its 100th championship boxing event. The Davis vs. Martin / Benavidez vs. Gvozdyk world championship event can be ordered by clicking here PPV.COM: Davis-Martin/Benavidez-Gvozdyk

JIM LAMPLEY'S PREVIEW ANALYSIS

David Benavidez vs Oleksandr Gvozdyk: "Coming off the level of violent destruction he produced against proven defender Demetrius Andrade, Benavidez now seeks to keep building the buzz by dismantling Oleksandr Gvozdyk’s long jab and counterpunching. Logic says if it is a boxing match, that favors the Ukrainian and if it is a war, that favors the Mexican-American star. Gvozdyk is an experienced ring thinker, and Benavidez freely admits Gvozdyk gave him some trouble when they sparred a couple of years ago, but there are some gifted power punchers against whom there isn’t enough time to think, and Benavidez is building a compelling case that he is that kind of puncher. Late Benavidez KO in a very good fight."

Gervonta Davis vs Frank Martin: "Martin trained in Derrick James’ camp during the last few weeks of Ryan Garcia’s preparation for Devin Haney. Tank Davis’ body shot KO’d Garcia in his last previous ring appearance back in January 2023. Since then, Davis has been stalled by legal obstacles he caused with a hit-and-run accident in February 2023, after which he violated a sentence instruction and wound up in jail. Now he approaches an opportunity, if he can beat Martin and set up a huge money rematch with Garcia, in which he would likely be favored. Davis is a rarity, a highly selective power counter puncher with nuanced defensive skills. With effective personal self-discipline, he could follow in Floyd Mayweather’s footsteps and become pound for pound number one. So Tank Davis climbs the list if he can follow form and outpunch Frank Martin. If he does, the focus swings back to matchmaking. In this fight, Davis by unanimous decision."

Joining Jim on the viewer chat will be award-winning boxing journalist Lance Pugmire and popular podcast host Dan Canobbio. Jim, Lance, and Dan, along with former WBO junior welterweight world champion Chis Algieri will also be providing exclusive fight week commentary and reports from Las Vegas for PPV.COM's website and social platforms, like Lampley's interview with Davis after the announcement press conference: Gervonta "Tank" Davis sits down with PPV.COM's Jim Lampley ahead of Tank vs. Martin. - YouTube
