Gervonta Davis knocks our Hugo Ruiz in first round to retain title Gervonta Davis retains WBA super-featherweight title with first-round knockout of Hugo Ruiz

Gervonta Davis retained his World Boxing Association super featherweight world title with a vicious first-round knockout of former world champion Hugo Ruiz on Sunday. It was obvious in the opening seconds that Ruiz, who took the fight on short notice when former world champion Abner Mares pulled out because of a detached retina, was clearly outgunned.

The southpaw didn't disappoint in his first main event fight featured on Showtime Saturday evening delivering another knockout, something the boxing world is getting used to seeing.

Davis finished Ruiz with a lethal right cross to the face by which Ruiz had a delayed reaction before taking a knee to the canvas.

Davis came out to the ring with a special entrance highlighted by Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and would later go on to thrill the audience with his world-class speed and power.

"I knew it was coming".

He got up at nine, but when referee Jack Reiss asked him in both English and Spanish if he wanted to continue, he didn't answer. Check out everyone who was in the building for the big fight.

"As soon as he started landing punches, I could feel them", Ruiz said.

Next up for Davis could be the victor of the March 2 Ricardo Nunez-Edner Cherry WBA Eliminator on SHOWTIME from Barclays Center. "I have three, probably four fights lined up this year".

"We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight]", the 41-year-old said. I'm a fighter and I have a great team.

Tank Davis (20-0, 19 KOs) is backed by boxing superstar Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. and is one of the brightest young stars in the sport. I got a bonus!' Davis will likely return to less farcical match-ups in May when he will defend his title against an opponent that, as of yet, remains unselected.
