Despite the pleas of fans, Davis has remarkable pulling power as a look into the stands showed plenty of big names in attendance wanting to catch a glimpse of the devastating Baltimore native. Everything I got on is real, even the cup I'm sipping out of is real gold and if you don't like it. you're a REAL HATER!
It was Davis' 12th knockout in succession and 20th in 21 professional fights, all of which have been victories.
"We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight]", the 41-year-old said.
He raised the stakes Saturday night when he fought Hugo Ruiz for the WBA super featherweight championship.
'I knew it was coming.
Ruiz, a former junior featherweight world titleholder, who had just won a lopsided decision in a featherweight bout January 19 on the Manny Pacquiao-Adrien Broner undercard, quickly accepted an offer to fill in and moved up another weight division with the promise to give Davis a serious fight in the Showtime-televised main event. When I touched the jab, I saw his arm was in front of his face, so I threw a hook or uppercut it was right in line'.
It's exactly how he should've done it, given that Ruiz was a late replacement who'd fought less than a month ago, and only past year moved up to featherweight from junior featherweight.
Davis had been originally scheduled to fight Abner Mares but he was forced to withdraw with an eye injury.
Ruiz feels he is fit and in shape ready to go again with just under a month since his last fight.
Davis beat Ruiz by first-round technical knockout after dropping the Mexican veteran with a right cross. "I have a lot of first round knock outs, today was my turn to lose in the first round".
"My main goal tonight was to make a great performance, which I did".
Mayweather said that he earned $9 million - plus a $1 million bonus - for the exhibition with Nasukawa and said he would likely participate in future exhibition fights.
