Baltimore's Gervonta Davis Knocks Out Francisco Fonseca

Floyd Mayweather

Gervonta Davis (19-0, 18 KOs), who at 22 was boxing's youngest champion before being stripped of his IBF junior lightweight title this week for coming in two pounds over the 130 lb. limit, defeated his opponent, Francisco Fonseca (19-1-1, 13 KOs), but did so in a performance so flat and disappointing, the comparisons to Adrien Broner are nearly impossible to avoid.

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

Just before the controversial blow, Davis had landed a typical, and possibly effective, body combination but Fonseca was still upright in a defensive posture.

However, it seemed to land on the back of Fonseca's neck.

Another stated: I'm young, I'm growing.

It left the 22-year-old unable to make a second defence of the title he'd won seven months ago, and gave rank outsider Fonseca the chance to win the surprisingly vacant belt. I will have a belt again. The crowd continued booing Davis after he was deemed the victor of the fight.

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

It was a weird performance for Davis, who hadn't done that much showboating or fought as sloppy in the ring in his past fights.

It is thought that Davis will have to move up to the same weight class as him however (super-featherweight) in his next fight after failing to make weight for tonight's bout. He may end up moving up to the 135-pound lightweight division.

Gervonta Davis arrived in a pretty memorable outfit for his fight tonight!
