Davis-Mares Possible For February 9th
After only fighting once in 2018, WBA super featherweight champion, Gervonta Davis, looks to hit the ring three times in the new year.
Per a report from Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times, Davis will defend his title against Abner Mares on February 9th in an unspecified Southern California venue on Showtime.
This would be Davis’ first fight since April 21st, when he won his WBA title with a third-round knockout of Jesus Cuellar, who lost another WBA title match two years prior to Mares in Los Angeles.
Mares looks to bounce back following his unanimous decision loss to WBA “super” featherweight champion, Leo Santa Cruz in June.
