Next fight of Liam Walsh is not determined yet.
As good as Floyd Mayweather Jr says Gervonta Davis is after an impressive first world title defence, he is not in a rush to match him with the likes of Vasyl Lomachenko. Davis produced a brutal performance to stop Briton Liam Walsh in the third round at London's Copper Box Arena on Saturday and defend his IBF world super-featherweight title.
Lately, the United Kingdon has been dominating boxing, but that trends was halted, at least for today, in London where Baltimore's Gervonta "Tank" Davis retained his IBF 130-pound championship with an easy third-round stoppage of Britain's Liam Walsh. After two uneventful rounds, Davis began letting his left hand go, and Walsh was unable to avoid it. Davis knocked Walsh down once, and Walsh got up unsteadily.
IBF World super featherweight champion Gervonta Davis (18-0, 17 KOs) scored a third round KO over Liam Walsh (21-2, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Copper Box Arena, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Hackney Wick, London. In the first few rounds, both fighters boxed tactically, feeling things out. In round three Davis unleashed a barrage of punches, knocking down Walsh. Davis continued to overpower Walsh, causing the referee to stop the fight. Time was 2:11.
Junior lightweight world titleholder Gervonta "Tank" Davis, who looked spectacular in an exciting seventh-round knockout of Jose Pedraza to claim a 130-pound world title on Jan. 14 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, will not be making his initial defense at home in Baltimore, where he would surely draw a crowd.
