Gervonta Davis now has 12 straight knockout wins

Unbeaten Gervonta Davis retained his WBA super-featherweight title with a first-round knockout win over former champion Hugo Ruiz.

Referee Jack Reiss called a stop to the contest, in front of 8,048 at Dignity Health Sports Park in California, after just two minutes and 29 seconds following a bombardment of punches which floored Mexican veteran Ruiz.

Ruiz had stepped in as a late replacement after Davis’ original opponent, three-division champion Abner Mares, withdrew last month after suffering an eye injury.
