Gervonta Davis may do Japan exhibition like Floyd Mayweather

Gervonta Davis may do Japan exhibition like Floyd Mayweather

The bout was a mismatch, with Mayweather physically far too big to sustain any real damage against a fighter who was unable to use his most unsafe weapons - his feet - due to the rules imposed by the American's team.

Elsewhere, Ruiz's compatriot Rey Vargas successfully defended his WBC world super-bantamweight title against Venezuela's Franklin Manzanilla, while Alberto Machado of Puerto Rico lost his WBA secondary super-featherweight belt to American Andrew Cancio.

Surprised media members asked Mayweather for a clarification and he responded, "Yes, he's fighting Tenshin in an exhibition bout in Japan". I favored Davis to win, but a draw is fair since it was a great fight and could possibly headline a Mayweather Promotions card in Sam's Town in Las Vegas, Nevada.

'But he has an exhibition bout with Tenshin (Nasukawa) in Japan in April.

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

Davis added: "I'm very confident that I will be more active this year". To fight Mayweather, Nasukawa moved up from is natural 126-pound featherweight division to the 147-pound welterweight division.

"So yeah, Gervonta Davis is the best 130-pounder on the planet", Sonaglia tweeted.

Remarkably it's not the first time Mayweather has opted to wear the knee high boots that look like he's about to star in a western movie.

Davis, who has now stopped his last 12 opponents, connected on 50 percent of his power punches, just under the 51 percent power accuracy he logged in his last four fights.

Premier Boxing Champions: Gervonta "Tank" Davis vs. Hugo Ruiz takes place at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California on February 9, 2019 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on SHOWTIME.

"Probably so, most likely", Mayweather said.
