After Mayweather had discussed the way the 22-year-old Davis has pursued a glamorous lifestyle similar to his, Walsh said: "We're complete polar opposites". I have one of the best in the business backing me.
'I expect to win this fight and if I do it will be a dream come true not only for me but also my brothers.
Asked if the comparisons to Hatton and Calzaghe inspired him, Walsh responded: "They do, yeah".
"It's been pretty good since winning the world title", said Davis.
They will likely be cheering for the home fighter Walsh. "' I told him, 'if you listen to me and continue to work hard I truly believe you can be world champion within 24 months.' And that's just one stepping stone". Davis has punched his way out of the gang-infested projects in Baltimore and Mayweather says: 'Like him, I had a mother who did drugs in a tough neighbourhood. If he's going to be a star in the future, it's going to have to be with a loss after fighting me.
Davis vs. Walsh is part of a split-site, four-fight SHOWTME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecast that begins on Saturday, May 20, at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.
NAFTA critic calls Trump plans "markedly vague"
The administration will need to rally lawmakers behind its negotiating position, a hard task in a polarized political environment. Nonpartisan congressional research concluded in 2015 that NAFTA had not caused an exodus of jobs, nor was it a major job creator.
Ellerbe compared Davis' trek to enemy territory to the one that Mayweather made in 2005, when he went to Arturo Gatti's base in Atlantic City, New Jersey, to challenge for his junior welterweight belt. "I have a lot of United Kingdom fans after the Pedraza fight, so I think it's a good change". I want to do more in the sport.
Walsh has a thin resume, but Davis' isn't all that strong either other than the win over Pedraza. I fought overseas when I was an amateur so now I'm going as a pro and I feel like it's a great opportunity. Or a long fight? Getting the world title is a step closer to where I want to be.
But he will be fighting outside the U.S. for the first time in his professional career in front of an expected raucous crowd.
The war of words continued even after the press conference had ended, but this time with Mayweather surrounded by bodyguards.
Walsh has slight height and reach advantages which will help him fight on the outside, like he did for much of the time against Klimov, and it will be interesting to see what Davis does if he is unable to land one of his big bombs. "I think his skills will speak loud and clear".
Their preview of the fight was consistently interrupted by provocations from Walsh's brothers Ryan and Michael, and Mayweather frequently responded, shouting "I'll slap both of you pussies" as both parties threatened to lose control.
