Gervonta Davis became a two division champion by knocking out Leo Santa Cruz in the sixth round of combat held in San Antonio, Texas.
It is the first time that the Mexican-American has been arrested in his career.
Davis hit a left uppercut that took Santa Cruz to the canvas with 20 seconds remaining in the sixth round to define the fight, which was the first since the start of the pandemic where the public was allowed in the event.
Davis put his record at 24-0 with 23 KOs, while Santa Cruz suffered his second setback in 40 fights.
Davis’ KO was the 16th in a row for the American, who averages 96% of his wins by KO, the highest in the sport at present.
He is the first champion in more than one division since Floyd Mayweather surpassed Marcos Maidana in 2014 to add two crowns to his record. Previously, only Sugar Ray Leonard had accomplished the feat in 1988.
