Gervonta Davis Scores KO On Mayweather-McGregor Card In Bizarre Fight

Gervonta Davis Misses Weight, Loses Title

However, only Fonseca (19-0-1, 13 KO's) is eligible to leave with the title if he were to win.

However, losing the title due to weight wasn't the end of Davis' difficulties. Eventually, Davis put Fonseca down with a punishing body blow, followed by a left hook in the eighth round, but even that was controversial as the left hook punch appeared to hit Fonseca in the back of the head, which is illegal. "I had a chance to make the weight; I knew I couldn't make it, and that's that".

When Davis was announced as the victor, the crowd booed leaving Davis with a quizzical expression on his usually smiling face.

The Baltimore native walked out to the ring wearing a fuzzy blue hat, with matching furry stripes on his trunks.

Davis, widely considered the best young fighter now in the Mayweather Promotions stable, fought mostly with his hands down, attacking from various angles, but unlike the masters of that type of style like Roy Jones and Prince Naseem Hamed, Davis rarely landed cleanly and was countered often by the traditional left jab, right hand attack of Fonseca.


After a lackluster first three rounds, Davis chose to showboat in the fourth round putting his hands behind his back daring Fonseca to come at him and at one point theatrically pretended to be groggy. Fonseca weighed in at exactly 130 pounds. "I apologize ... it will never happen again", he said.

In the seventh round, Davis' feet got tangled with Fonseca's leg and that allowed Fonseca to land a meaningful left hand.

Davis didn't take long to send out Twitter messages to his fans after failing to make weight.

According to Fonseca, Davis came into fight night at 160 pounds but still didn't hit that hard.
