Leo Santa Cruz: Gervonta Davis looked kind of soft, not confident

Santa Cruz gives his assessment of ‘Tank’ during today’s weigh-in.

With tomorrow night’s PPV main event set after both Gervonta Davis and Leo Santa Cruz made weight, Santa Cruz caught up with Marcos Villegas to share what he saw in Davis during the weigh-in and why he thinks Davis didn’t appear all that confident.

Santa Cruz on how he’s feeling after the weigh-in:

“I feel great. I made weight, he made weight.”

On if he knew Davis hopped on the scale earlier in the day just to be sure he was on weight:

“I felt like he was struggling [to make weight]. I think he’s been working a lot, running and everything, to make weight...He wanted to make sure he made weight so I think he was ready.”
