Gervonta Davis Knocks Out Frank Martin In The 8th Round

Gervonta Davis retains WBA lightweight belt with an eighth round knockout of Frank Martin in Las Vegas; David Benavidez claims the interim WBC light-heavyweight title after a unanimous decision win over Oleksandr Gvozdyk at the MGM Grand.

Davis stunned Martin with a big left uppercut and then followed up with a big hook from the same hand to send his opponent crashing to the canvas in the eighth round.

The unbeaten 29-year-old was returning to the ring after an absence of over a year and Martin started sharper, landing crisp right hands in the opening two rounds.

But Davis gradually raised the intensity of his punishing assault, forcing Martin to seek refuge on the ropes and in the corners.

A string of stinging shots troubled Martin in the sixth round, prompting roars of approval from the crowd at the MGM Grand.

On the undercard, David Benavidez marked his debut in the light-heavyweight division with a unanimous decision win over Oleksandr Gvozdyk to secure the interim WBC title.
