Gervonta Davis squared off with Leo Santa Cruz in front of nine thousand fans at San Antonio’s Alamodome yesterday evening.

The highly anticipated super-featherweight bout served as the headliner of Saturday’s Showtime PPV event and did not disappoint. Davis and Cruz went back and forth for the first five rounds in a seemingly competitive matchup. However, in round six Gervonta was able to find a home for a wicked left uppercut that sent his Mexican opponent crashing to the canvas in a state of unconsciousness.

Davis captured the WBA super featherweight title with the win, adding to his existing WBA lightweight title.

The highlight reel knockout obviously caused a stir amongst the combat sports world and many pros took to social media with their respective reactions.
