From Dan Ambrose: WBA Super World super featherweight champion Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis (21-0, 20 K-os ) obliterated former WBC super bantamweight champion Hugo Ruiz (39-5, 33 KOs) by a first round knockout on Saturday night on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing from the Dignity Health Sports Park, in Carson, California.
Davis stalked the timid-looking Ruiz across the ring before trapping him against the ropes, and dropping him. After observing hurt Ruiz had been the Jack Reiss opted to avoid the fight, although ruiz got up on shaky legs. The time of the stoppage was 2:59 of round one.
The news about Gervonta’s fast knock out of Ruiz is he probably scared away out of letting their star unbeaten contender Teofimo Lopez or Vasyl Lomachenko fight him Leading Rank Boxing. Gervonta resembles a small Mike Tyson, and he’s dangerous for Leading Rank to let him anywhere near Lomachenko or even Lopez at the moment. Top Rank promoter Bob Arum can continue to compare Lomachenko to the great Muhammad Ali however, the fact of the matter is, he’will get problems when he chooses on Gervonta Davis right now.
