The 22-year-old is unbeaten in 17 fights with 16 of his wins coming by knockout and his promoter Floyd Mayweather has already labelled him ‘the future of boxing’.
But he will be fighting outside the US for the first time in his professional career in front of an expected raucous crowd.
They will likely be cheering for the home fighter Walsh. The Manchester-born 30-year-old is also unbeaten and is a former British and European champion and already holds the Commonwealth belt in the super-featherweight division.
How can I stream Gervonta Davis v Liam Walsh in the UK?
Walsh is a fighter on Frank Warren’s books, meaning the bout will be shown in the UK live on BT Sport and BoxNation, both of which are available to BT Sport subscribers.
Sky subscribers will be able to watch on TV if they add BoxNation to their subscription for £12 per month.
