Floyd Mayweather claims Gervonta Davis is fighting Tenshin Nasukawa in RIZIN

This will be a huge step up for the hard-hitting Ruiz, even though 33 of his 39 wins are by KO, he will be at a size disadvantage going up to 130-pounds against a much larger and stronger Tank Davis.

Gervonta Davis who is just 24-years-old and known as "Tank", fights out of the Upton Boxing Center in West Baltimore. Gervonta Davis was slated to face former two-division world champion Abner Mares in the main event of a Showtime-televised boxing card Saturday, but Mares withdrew earlier in the week due to a detached retina.

Gervonta Davis dispatched Hugo Ruiz with one second left in the very first round of their fight for the WBA super featherweight title.

Davis secured the knockout victory and walked away unscathed with the fight stoppage registered at 2:59 of round one. It looks like a Davis jab might've been the nose-breaking shot, and a follow up right hook had Ruiz reconsidering whether he should've signed up for this.

Reiss said he stopped the fight when Ruiz failed to say if he felt he could continue.

Davis (21-0, 20 KOs) did not say anything about the exhibition with Nasukawa, who at least is closer in size to Davis than he is to Mayweather.

Fortuna could be in the running for the victor of Rances Barthelemy versus Robert Easter Jr., who will fight in April for the WBA lightweight world title Mikey Garcia gave up. "At the end of the day I'm a fighter". He said afterward he wants to fight at least three more times this year.

"We don't know", he said when asked who Davis would fight in his second defense. Ruiz didn't like those and it never got any better. I think a fighter should be ready and able to adapt to anything that is in front of him in the ring.

Land it did and it was more than Ruiz can handle.
