Hello friends. The last big boxing card of 2019 is a fun one. SHO, 9:00 pm ET, Gervonta Davis vs Yuriorkis Gamboa, Jean Pascal vs Badou Jack, Jose Uzcategui vs Lionell Thompson. Davis-Gamboa is for the vacant WBA “world” lightweight title; the real WBA title is held by Vasiliy Lomachenko. I’ve hated the idea of Davis-Gamboa since it was being floated prior to their July wins in Baltimore, and that didn’t lessen when Gamboa sparked out old, no-feet Rocky Martinez. But I don’t think this will be boring, I expect an explosive fight that frankly isn’t going to last too long. Pascal-Jack is a big fight for both at 175; Pascal has the WBA’s secondary belt (real one held by Dmitry Bivol) and is coming off of a somewhat fluky upset win over Marcus Browne, who beat Jack in January largely thanks to Jack losing an obscene amount of blood over 12 rounds. The winner here stays in the race, the loser is kind of out of it for the time being, though I won’t be surprised if weirdo Pascal keeps hanging around against the odds until he’s 45 even if he comes up short here. Uzcategui-Thompson is a fight.
