Abner Mares OUT of Gervonta Davis Fight; Hugo Ruiz Steps In

  • Latest update: Apologies for errors yesterday, due to php resource allocation needs configuring to suit the server, and can only do that when we know what's not working.

    There should be no more errors now, but there might be a bit more configuring required. If you get any error 500's or other errors browsing, please send me a pm with your ip address, time of error (and your timezone if not uk), and the page you're trying to access.

    Should be leading to some big performance increase and new features. Thanks to everyone for patience and support.

There were rumours Davis-Mares would get done in time for the Wilder-Fury card. Didn't happen.

But word is the deal is all but done for a meeting in early 2019.

I think Mares has a decent shot with his experience and workrate. He might be able to outwork Davis after seeing how undisciplined he is in between fights. If Tank is in decent shape, he'll destroy Mares however.

Interesting fight. On paper, Tank should win this big, but Mares has a shot.

Mares will get destroyed in 6 rounds he doesnt move his head, just because he can take LSC's punches doesnt mean he can take Tank's

I can't stand the egotistical, dirty little shit, and would love to see someone humiliate him, but Mares is not the guy to do it.

Plus, Is Mares moving up to 130? What the heck is Davis doing fighting a guy who's never been at that weight?

Would've been exponentially better if Ruiz wasn't on a short notice, but he just fought and took very little punishment. Ruiz looks insanely big at FW, btw. He has the frame for 130 lbs. I think this is a better fight all around except the short notice part.
