Gervonta Davis vs Marios Barrios: All Access (Episode 2)

Gervonta Davis jumps two weight classes to challenge Mario Barrios this weekend on Showtime PPV.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

In anticipation of this weekend’s Showtime PPV, headlined by Gervonta Davis moving up to face secondary titleholder Mario Barrios, Showtime releases it’s second installment of All Access, taking a behind-the-scenes look at both fighters as they head into the fight.

This second episode picks up with Davis’ trainer studying tape on Barrios’ previous fights and picking up where he believes Davis will be able to take advantage with Calvin Ford saying Barrios doesn’t have anywhere near the speed and quickness of Davis. From there we jump right back into the gym with Davis as he physically conditions himself for the rigor of the impending battle.

But from there we take a bit of a glimpse into the personal lives of both Davis and Barrios, with both fighters talking about their backgrounds with Davis going into his story of coming up hard and trying to rebuild a his family that was broken through drug addiction and foster care.

Check out the second episode in full in the video link above!
