Floyd Mayweather claims Gervonta Davis is fighting Tenshin Nasukawa in RIZIN

Gervonta Davis knocks our Hugo Ruiz in first round to retain title

Junior lightweight world titleholder Gervonta "Tank" Davis could be back in the ring as soon as April - but not for an official fight.

Ruiz had stepped in as a late replacement after Davis' original opponent, three-division champion Abner Mares, withdrew last month after suffering an eye injury.

And it appears Mayweather is setting up another exhibition bout for Nasukawa.

Floyd Mayweather, to remind, recently fought Tenshin Nasukawa himself, also in an exhibition bout in the RIZIN ring.

Baltimore Boxer Gervonta Davis successfully defended his WBA super featherweight title with a first round knockout of Hugo Ruiz.

"He was really hurt, that nose was broken earlier and then he got hit on it again".


The Japanese was unceremoniously beaten by Mayweather on New Year's Eve, who needed just 136 seconds to force Tenshin's corner to throw in the towel.

During a scrum with reporters after the fight, Mayweather, with Davis at his side, said that the 24-year-old Baltimore fighter would head to Japan to face Nasukawa in a boxing exhibition this spring. He is fighting Tenshin in an exhibition match in Japan, in RIZIN. I'm proud of Tank.

"We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight]", the 41-year-old said.

Whilst the fight details have yet to be released, it promises to be another money-making venture for Mayweather, the former five-weight world champion.

Unbeaten Davis lived up to his knockout-artist reputation with his 20th win inside the distance out of his 21 victories.
