Keyshawn Davis is a true prodigy in the art of fisticuffs. At 23, the Norfolk, Virginia native has a notable past as an amateur athlete, with a silver medal at the 2019 World Cup in Russia plus an Olympic runner-up finish at the Tokyo 2020 Games.
He has only five fights as a pro, but his meteoric rise has to do with the fact that his career is being carefully managed to stardom. The fact is that Davis signed a contract with none other than Bob Arum, the promoter’s prodigy, to whom he has already asked that he wants to face the great lightweight champion, Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko, no matter what.
It will be a matter of taking it step by step: first, he will have to take several tests, including this one against Omar Tienda. In the meantime, his name has already been added to a number of big bills, such as Lomachenko-Commey and Canelo Alvarez-Billy Joe Saunders.

With the typical characteristics of a self-respecting Mexican boxer, tough and hard-hitting, Omar Tienda is one of those hurdles that serve to see what a boxer is made of, a boxer who is just starting out and who has on his back the expectations of being a star.
A native of Nuevo León, nicknamed Hero, he is 34 years old and has many battles under his belt, mostly fighting in his country.
A not minor fact is that of the 30 fights, only four were outside of Mexico, in the United States, and he lost them all: to Everton Lopes, Carlos Morales, Giovanni Santillan and Dennis Galarza.
Considering what is expected of Keyshawn Davis and the potential he possesses, the 23-year-old American has the upper hand in this bout. However, he will not have it easy, as Omar Tienda is a tough nut to crack and will make life impossible for him with a lot of skill. That’s why at JefeBet we believe Davis will come out on top, but it will be through the judges’ cards.
Prediction: Davis wins by points.
