Gervonta "Tank" Davis (13-0, 12 KOs) will face Luis Sanchez (17-4-1, 5 KOs) on Friday night, December 18, at the Palms Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The 10-round fight will be televised on Spike TV.
A highly regarded prospect who won the 2012 National Gloves championship, the 21-year-old Davis has already recorded four stoppage victories in 2015. Most recently, the Baltimore-native stopped former world champion Cristobal Cruz with a vicious combination in their October fight. Now he is challenged by the 23-year-old Sanchez out of Cancun, Mexico, who hopes to give Davis all he can handle on Friday night.
Gervonta Davis said, "I'm excited to be back in the ring and I'm ready to make my Spike TV debut. I've had a good camp and just ready to show the world more of what I can do. Luis Sanchez will definitely bring a challenge, and I know he will try to bring the fight to me. My team has a great game plan in place for this fight. Thank you to all my fans. Keep supporting me, and I'll fight for you."
