Both Davis and Martin successfully made weight during Friday's official weigh-ins, with "Tank" Davis coming in at 133.4 pounds and Martin at 134.4 pounds.


Tensions have been escalating throughout fight week, and the intensity reached its peak after both fighters hit the scales. The two engaged in a fiery faceoff, exchanging heated words as the crowd watched.


Frank Martin, particularly vocal, took to the microphone to express his readiness and determination. In contrast, Gervonta Davis remained calm and collected in his final pre-fight interview. He described the faceoff as a tactic to get into Martin's head before entertaining the fans with a backflip.

Benavidez, a two-time WBC super middleweight champion, is making his return to the light heavyweight division after nearly a decade. He sent a strong message to his opponent, promising a knockout.
