Gervonta Davis retains title with first-round KO

Gervonta Davis retains title with first-round KO

In front of 8,048 at Dignity Health Sports Park, Davis had the crowd on their feet with a powerful right cross, sending Ruiz to the canvas. Ruiz was a late replacement for former three-division world champion Abner Mares, who withdrew due to a detached retina in his right eye sustained during a training session. He tweeted: "So yeah, Gervonta Davis is the best 130-pounder on the planet".

Baltimore's Davis (21-0, 20 KOs) made a reported $1 million purse for quickly stopping Hugo Ruiz, though his total take from this "Showtime Championship Boxing" main event is believed to be more than that.

With Davis being active only this weekend when taking out a world-rated star like Hugo Ruiz in one round, it doesn't bode well for Tenshin when the pair eventually collide in the spring. One of those punches appeared to break Ruiz's nose. He went to a knee and when he got up, his face ejaculating blood, he gave no indication to the ref he wanted to continue. That led Reiss to call it off.

Ruiz, a former super bantamweight world champion, was coming off a unanimous 12-round decision over Alberto Guevara on the undercard of Manny Pacquiao's 12-round demolition of Adrien Broner and took the fight on 10 days' notice. He originally weighed in a quarter-pound over. "At the end of the day I'm a fighter".

His power is always a factor, and he began showing it early with punishing shots to the body. Barrios stopped a game Richard Zamora in four rounds, using a good use of distance and great combination punching to get the job done.

Saturday night's outfit was not the first sign of fandom Davis has publicly shown for Jackson.

"We don't know", he said when asked who Davis would fight in his second defense.
