Gervonta Davis Runs Through Liam Walsh
Gervonta Davis has made his first successful title defense of the IBF super featherweight championship, defeating Liam Walsh via third-round TKO.
While both fighters had decent opening round performances, it seemed to be mostly Davis. That quickly turned into all-Davis in the third round.
In that round, Davis, who had boxing icon Floyd Mayweather in his corner, pummeled Walsh, who was competing in his home country. The Brit was knocked down with a left hand, but he managed to just get up before the count of 10. As soon as the referee resumed the fight, however, Davis went back on the attack and the ref was forced to stop the bout.
Davis now improves to 18-0 with 17 KOs.
