As advertised, Leo Santa Cruz came to fight, setting a ferocious pace that pushed Davis from the opening bell. The former 130-pound champion started out strong, banking the first two rounds on most spectators score cards. Gervonta decided early on that he would not let LSC control the pace, meeting him stride for stride every step of the way, refusing to let the Mexican outwork him.
It became apparent early on that Tank was looking to run Leo into his left uppercut, as he began loading up on it every time it every time the opportunity presented itself. Tank's game plan did not disappoint, and with 23 seconds left in the sixth-round he landed a devastating uppercut that disconnected the four-weight champions consciousness.
After Tank landed, there was not a question of whether LSC “could” get up. This was the kind of punch that needs no intervention from an official. Luckily, Leo Santa Cruz eventually came to a few minutes after, and we are glad he is ok.
It was that kind of knockout.
On the night of Halloween, Gervonta Davis showed the world what a monster is, and that he is the man to be afraid of in the lightweight division.
Now the only question that remains is, who is ready to face this nightmare?
