Keyshawn Davis Expects A Fun Time Fighting Miguel Madueno


Come July 6, lightweight contender Keyshawn “The Businessman” Davis (10-0, 7 KO’s) is looking to have a ball in the ring. In this particular duel, he will be facing the challenge of Mexican bruiser Miguel “Explosivo” Madueno (31-2, 28 KO’s). Despite Explosivo’s 90% knockout ratio, The Businessman doesn’t believe that his power will be a factor in the match.

Having just fought and stopped Jose Pedraza, his most experienced professional adversary to date, Davis believes he is simply too seasoned to be bothered by Madueno. In a recent Q&A with Fight Hub TV, Davis outlined his outlook in a bit more detail.

“My fight is going to be entertaining. Like seriously, I’m not even going to stress that enough! I don’t care if you don’t even watch boxing, especially for this one. As much as I learned off the Pedraza fight and how I am looking in camp training alongside Terence Crawford, DB3 [and] Troy Isley, man I am about to have fun!”

THE ROAD TO THE TOP

As he was a highly touted, well-recognized amateur, who claimed an Olympic silver medal, The Businessman entered the professional ranks with a spotlight on him. This accomplished pedigree remains a large part of why he has already vigorously called for a showdown with two-division champion WBO junior welterweight Teofimo Lopez. To date, he has not secured the truly top tier type of match-ups that he craves for. Still, he is not letting this become a discouraging element.

Davis, 25, realizes that the climb to the top is typically a slow grind. Therefore, he is content working his way up by overcoming opponents like Pedraza, and now Madueno. If successful, naturally Davis, ranked #3 (IBF), #3 (WBC) and #5 (WBO) will continue searching for bigger fish to fry. On this topic, The Businessman has already publicly called out WBO lightweight champion Denys Berinchyk. Perhaps a sensational win over Madueno may be the perfect last audition.
