Floyd Mayweather coaching Gervonta Davis with real talk during his matchup vs Mario Barrios was tense, but it ended being the game changer in the fight, or so it seems. During round 10 Floyd Mayweather told Gervonta Davis he was down on the unofficial score card, but he wasn’t trying to hear it.
That moment would end up motivating him, because in round 11 he came out with much more aggression. The flurry of energy led to Gervontas Davis knocking out Mario Barrios for a TKO victory. The whole sequence was like something out a movie.
