Davis’s strengths are powerful punches to defeat the opponent via knockouts, and his knockout percentage is 93.1%. He also has a versatile fighting style to adapt to the opponent’s fighting technique, and he excels in counterpunching his opponent with adequate landing time. Looking into his weaknesses, Davis has defensive vulnerabilities; during his powerful punches, he sometimes showed defensive blunders. Also, Davis is shorter than his opponent, which affects his reach and distance control. Still, Davis is a trained and performed fighter in boxing and shines in the most critical moments in the ring.
