Keyshawn Davis shows his technical prowess against Richman Ashelley!
Keyshawn Davis is a hot young prospect within the lightweight division. Turning pro one fight ago in February 2021, he is expected to be the next face for upcoming fighters boxing fans will get familiar with quickly! With an extensive amateur career that led to two silver medals at the 2019 Pan American Games and World Championships, his talent has been cosigned by former WBO featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson and WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford.
The 22 year-old from Norfolk, Virginia is mostly known for his experience sparring many professional fighters before turning pro. This is mostly the reason why many other fighters support him. This led to his debut being an appearance on a prestigious Canelo Alvarez vs Avni Yildirim card.
He will now showcase his talents in what was thought to be a challenge on paper against unknown Ghanaian Richman Ashelley. The bout will take place on the undercard of Jamel Herring vs Carl Frampton’s WBO title clash.
TOO GOOD FOR YOU
If fans viewing this bout didn’t know who Davis was, they should now! He systematically dissected Ashelley over four rounds. He displayed the type of skill most fighters would need several bouts of experience first before displaying the same skills.
Everything was done in a calculated manner. He applied pressure but was able to control the distance with the jab. If Ashelley tried to barge his way inside, he would get caught with a counter. If he tried to stay on the outside and box, Davis would use his jab to get in position to cut of the ring and stab shots to the body. Not one time did he try to rush his work but instead stayed busy and kept placing his calculated shots with superb accuracy.
Ashelley never had a chance to do anything because the I.Q level and skill of Davis kept him from getting into rhythm. To make matters worse, Davis may not have even been hit flush the entire fight! The discombobulated Ghanaian was too frazzled mentally and too wild physically to do anything worth writing about!
Although he is only 22 years-old and 2-0 in his pro career, the skill he posses makes the hardcore boxing fan hope his handlers will put him a faster track!
