Davis destroys Ruiz to retain WBA super featherweight world title

Gervonta Davis knocks our Hugo Ruiz in first round to retain title

"I just wanted to put on a great performance", the 24-year-old said. "The exhibition [against Tenshin Nasukawa] was supposed to be $9M, but I end up making $10M".

It's really too bad we got this, an exciting but meaningless stoppage, instead of the scheduled fight, a showdown between Davis and Abner Mares.

And it appears Mayweather is setting up another exhibition bout for Nasukawa.

Ruiz, a former junior featherweight world titleholder, who had just won a lopsided decision in a featherweight bout January 19 on the Manny Pacquiao-Adrien Broner undercard, quickly accepted an offer to fill in and moved up another weight division with the promise to give Davis a serious fight in the Showtime-televised main event. He is fighting Tenshin in an exhibition match in Japan, in RIZIN.

"I'm extremely proud of Tank", Mayweather said.

Mayweather Promotions has plans to bring Davis home to Baltimore for a summer title defense, but Mayweather did not mention where specifically the May fight would take place or against whom.

Not only was this his In what was his 12th straight win, it was his 20th win inside the distance from 21 fights. Davis fights at 130 pounds.

On New Years Eve, Mayweather returned to the ring by facing Nasukawa in a three-round exhibition but it didn't last long.

Super welterweight Erickson Lubin retired Ishe Smith after dropping him four times, coach Eddie Mustafa Muhammad had seen enough and called the bout after three rounds, two of which Smith hit the canvas in. Check out everyone who was in the building for the big fight. Probably so. Most likely, yeah. I think a fighter should be ready and able to adapt to anything that is in front of him in the ring.

Davis added: "I'm very confident that I will be more active this year".
