This is effectively a tune up fight for Stephan Shaw, who is a talented fighter that needs more opportunities to showcase his skills. Nick Davis is a domestic heavyweight in the USA who has had mixed results at a fairly low level. A level that Shaw passed a long time ago and in impressive fashion. Shaw has been out the ring for eight months so taking whatever opportunity he can to fight is more than understandable.
I expect Shaw to overpower Nick Davis early in the fight and win by first or second round stoppage. A fight between Shaw and Jermaine Franklin was supposed to happen this year and I think if possible that fight should be resurrected, as it was a great match up between two up and coming American heavyweights.
