Statement by Gervonta Davis.
On his debut in the pay-per-view main event, “Tank” (24-0, 23 KOs) took the biggest and most violent win of his boxing career by sending Leo Santa Cruz (37-2-1, 19 KOs) inside Unconsciousness with one of the sharpest, toughest overtones you will ever see. Davis is now the WBA super featherweight champion and takes the Santa Cruz title in an exciting way in front of just over 9,000 fans at the Alamodome in San Antonio. This was the first major U.S. boxing event fans attended during this COVID-19 pandemic and what a night of boxing they experienced.
That fight was a fireworks display from the start, and it was Santa Cruz who started things brightly, getting the most out of his range advantage, and landing the cleaner shots. Davis appeared dejected in the opening round, but he was actually involved with LSC and it was clearly a trip. Santa Cruz went down on lap two, but that was a bump and not a real knockdown.
Davis began to shorten his timing as the fight progressed, but Santa Cruz was ready to embark on a hell of a fire. The problem with doing this against someone in Davis’ power is that it only takes one shot to end your night. Showtime Boxing got the KO for you to see:

Santa Cruz was downstairs for a few minutes but was able to get up and was led to a stool. It is the first knockout loss in his career. At the time of the hiatus, he was down between 48 and 47 on all three scorecards, but make no mistake: this was a competitive and highly entertaining fight that ended with one of the best one-hitter quitters of 2020.
Davis has legitimized himself as an elite fighter and achieved a victory against a world-class opponent.
By the way, the entire PPV had nothing but knockouts. Here’s one of Mario Barrios versus Ryan “Cowboy” Karl …
Regis Prograis against Juan Heraldez …
… and Isaac Cruz ‘own uppercut stop by Diego Magdaleno.
