It only makes sense that the regular champion Gervonta Davis and the unified lightweight champion Devin Haney fight. The only problem with this fight is that Devin Haney is not a big name yet and won the titles but has no defenses. Gervonta has over a 90% knockout ratio, making him more interesting to watch. Many experts have said there is no need for a Kambosos rematch because Devin dominated. The next fight for both boxers should be to unify their titles.

Edgar Berlanga Can Still Bring Excitement Back to New York Boxing
Edgar Berlanga, an up-and-coming name in the sport of boxing, but he didn't produce a big finish versus Steve Rolls. There is still a significant opportunity for Berlanga to be the center of New York boxing. Mike Tyson is the most prominent New York boxer in history, and we can remember the excitement his fights drew in the late eighties and early nineties. Some other notable fighters from New York, like Shannon Briggs and Teofimo Lopez, are great, but Berlanga is unique because he is Puerto Rican. Puerto Ricans have played a significant role in New York's entertainment culture. Even when you look at hip-hop and the impact Puerto Ricans have had on break dancing, graffiti, and rapping. Big Pun is still considered one of the best rappers of all time. Then you can talk about the impact of Lin-Manuel Miranda and his play "Hamilton" and the many awards, including a Grammy he won for best play. So, you can see how Edgar Berlanga's background has already impacted his fight attendance. He drew some of the biggest names in music, including top hip-hop stars. There is a lot of pressure for Berlanga to come out and perform at a high level.
