(Boxing) Gervonta Davis Knocks Out Liam Walsh In His First IBF World Super-Featherweight Title Defense


Davis finished off Liam Walsh In the third round in his first IBF World Super-Featherweight Title Defense on Saturday at the Copper Box Arena in east London , showing why he is tipped the next Pound for pound superstar in the Boxing business.

The American, with motivation from his trainer and promoter Floyd Mayweather by the side of the ring, produced quick punches and powerful vicious left hooks to the temple amid a ferocious combination which sent Walsh to the floor in the third round and after the count went in to finished him off with a ruthless hit.

"I think he [Walsh] was hurt pretty bad, the referee did his job," Davis said about a stoppage that came too quickly in the eyes of some, not least Walsh.

"It was just a matter of time before I got him. I used my boxing IQ tonight and picked my shots. When I connected I got him out of there. I'm still on the rise. I became a champion super-fast."

Davis came into the game with such an aggression compared to that of Mick Tyson giving him the name "Mini Mike Tyson"  as he got his 17th knock out in 18 Bouts but this wasn't good with some  Walsh fans, who thought the fight had stopped so early, throwing beer bottles at the Referee, even Walsh made mention of that in his speech.

"That was a bad stoppage," said Walsh. "He's very fast and very active but it was too quick. He won fair and square but in England sometimes they stop the fight too early.

"I'm not saying the result would be different, but give me a chance, I would love to fight him again for next to nothing."

The stoppage no doubt net the approval of his trainer and Promoter Floyd Mayweather, who stood by the ring during the fight, who is also negotiating his fight with Conor McGregor. When asked about it, He replied

"I think it [a fight with McGregor] will happen, and I hope this man is on the undercard."
