The five-time world champion and boxing superstar Gervonta “Tank” Davis managed to showcase his boxing skills in front of a large crowd of 15,850 in total. Gervonta succeeded to retain his WBA Lightweight title in a fight against Isaac Cruz on Sunday.
On Sunday night in Los Angeles, Gervonta Davis defeated Isaac Cruz to retain his WBA lightweight title in a flourishing lightweight division.
With a slew of current and former NBA stars in attendance, including Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Kawhi Leonard, Dwight Howard, Kenny Smith, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce, the atmosphere in the arena was electric.
The Unbeaten US starlet Ryan Garcia reacted to ‘Tank’ Davis' latest win: “Gervonta gets away with fighting C-level fighters, out of all the lightweights he’s the weakest! His toughest test, Leo Santa Cruz, was almost lost tonight. Bring it on, I've been calling you out for a while.”
“All those guys are easy to work with, I’m the top dog,” said Gervonta Davis.
Isaac Cruz proved himself as a tough opponent in his latest fight with Gervonta Davis. Due to an onslaught of pressure, Davis was unable to take a breath for the duration of the fight.
Initially, he was able to time his signature power punches, but an injured hand prevented him from stopping Cruz within the distance.
The undefeated world champion in 26 with 24 knockouts owns the WBA ‘regular’ white belt.
