Gervonta Davis knocks our Hugo Ruiz in first round to retain title

Gervonta Davis 08

Baltimore Boxer Gervonta Davis successfully defended his WBA super featherweight title with a first round knockout of Hugo Ruiz.

Mayweather is unsurprisingly keen to see Davis go to Asia having walked away from his bout with $10million (£7.7m) and while the 24-year-old is unlikely to get to such figures, he would make light work of the 20-year-old Japanese fighter.

Davis, who entered the ring to Michael Jackson's "Thriller", wasted little time showing why he is one of boxing rising super stars with his impressive fourth win in a world title fight.

"Tonight I just wanted to put on a great performance", said Davis, who posted his 12th straight knockout.

And it appears Mayweather is setting up another exhibition bout for Nasukawa. "So first it's Tenshin in April and then in May it's the real fight".

Surprised media members asked Mayweather for a clarification and he responded, "Yes, he's fighting Tenshin in an exhibition bout in Japan". I'm proud of Tank. "So first it's Tenshin in April and then in May it's the real fight", Mayweather said. I got a bonus!'

Competitors play a round each at Pebble Beach, Monterey's Shore course and Spyglass Hill over the first three days. Furyk, he won't hit a shot anywhere near as cool as the one Romo pulled off on Pebble Beach's 15th hole Friday.

The bout was contested at 147 pounds, far north of the weight Nasukawa typically fights at.

On New Years Eve, Mayweather returned to the ring by facing Nasukawa in a three-round exhibition but it didn't last long.

"We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight]", the 41-year-old said.

By the end of the fight, Nasukawa was reduced to tears, such was the onslaught that he faced at the hands of his rival.

Get ready for Davis vs. Nasukawa in an exhibition, folks.
