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

WBA super featherweight champion Gervonta "Tank" Davis (21-0, 20 KOs) of Baltimore rolled over former world champion Hugo Ruiz (39-5, 33 KOs) of Mexico, successfully defending his title Saturday night with an explosive first round knockout at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

Do you think Tenshin Nasukawa and Gervonta Davis will actually fight, or is Floyd Mayweather bluffing?

During a scrum with reporters after the fight, Mayweather, with Davis at his side, said that the 24-year-old Baltimore fighter would head to Japan to face Nasukawa in a boxing exhibition this spring. He is fighting Tenshin in an exhibition match in Japan, in RIZIN.

Mayweather claimed the bout would take place in April, according to Forbes. "April is Tenshin. May is the real fight". Mayweather won the fight with a lopsided first-round knockout. "When I get back, I'll talk to my staff, my team, sit down with [Mayweather Promotions CEO] Leonard [Ellerbe], [adviser] Al [Haymon], the rest of my staff and see what we come up with". Davis registered his 20th knockout win in 21 fights as Ruiz, who just fought and won against Alberto Guevarra on the Pacquiao-Broner undercard last January 19, didn't know what hit him.

"We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight], if that's okay with him", Mayweather stated (via Boxing Scene). To fight Mayweather, Nasukawa moved up from is natural 126-pound featherweight division to the 147-pound welterweight division. Because it was an exhibition bout, the Japanese kickboxer is still technically undefeated.
