With 93% of his wins coming through knockouts, Gervonta Davis has established his name as one of boxing’s foremost experts in early stoppages. The hard-hitting southpaw would undergo a crucial test in Nevada’s T Mobile Arena on April 22. His opponent is unlike most of the opponents he has faced in his career. A lethal left hook and penchant for early closure make Ryan Garcia one of the most redoubtable foes Davis would ever meet.

On January 14, 2017, he won his first title, IBF Super Featherweight, against Puerto Rican Jose Pedraza. Next year, he scaled up and took home the vacant WBA (Super) Super Featherweight after knocking out the Argentine Jesus Cuellar.

He moved up the weight divisions, defeated Yuriorkis Gamboa, and won the vacant WBA (Regular) Lightweight title in 2019. Two years later, continuing his winning streak, Davis knocked out Leo Santa Cruz and successfully defended his WBA (Regular) Lightweight, besides grabbing WBA (Super) Super Featherweight titles. Finally, a technical knockout victory over Mario Barrios fetched him WBA (Regular) Super Lightweight title.

This year on January 7, he successfully defended his WBA (Regular) Lightweight title against the Dominican Hector Luis Garcia. Thus ‘Tank’s’ professional record stands at twenty-eight wins against nil losses. Out of the twenty-eight, twenty-six, he bagged through knockouts.
