Baltimore, MD lightweight Gervonta "Tank" Davis remains perfect in Las Vegas!
After coming off a third-round TKO over former world champion Cristobal Cruz on October 30 in Orlando, FL Gervonta Davis went into deeper water to get a ninth round knockout over Luis Sanchez of Cancun, Mexico.
Davis used less of a jab and more counter left hands to gradually get through the guard of Luis Sanchez. Sanchez tried to step up the pace in the forth round but with 50 seconds left he was met by a solid left uppercut from Davis that sent him to the canvas for the eight count. The knockdown wasn't enough to stop Sanchez from trying to press the action towards Davis, but Davis didn't back down. In the eight round it was Davis that landed the harder shots that seemed to breakdown Sanchez. Coming into the ninth round is when Davis used that same left uppercut to drop Sanchez for the second and final time of the contest. Referee Kenny Bayless waved the bout off at 2:05 of round nine.
Gervonta Davis stays perfect with a record of 14-0, (13 KO's) while Luis Sanchez falls to 17-5-1, (5 KO's).
Here is the video recap.
