On Saturday night, WBA junior lightweight champion Gervonta Davis defended his title with a dominant first-round TKO of former world champion Hugo Ruiz before a sellout crowd of 8,048 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, CA. The one-sided contest aired on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing, as Davis raised his mark to 21-0 (20 KO’s) while Ruiz fell to 39-5 (32 KO’s).
With his promoter Floyd Mayweather watching from ringside, Davis made quick work of his late-replacement opponent.
