Gervonta Davis regains his crown with a spectacular knockout over Frank Martin

At this point, it would be a miracle if a Gervonta Davis fight didn’t end in a knockout. And it seems like they just get better and better.

On Saturday night, Tank put his WBA lightweight title on the line against unbeaten Frank Martin. After a slow start, which he later attributed to being “rusty“, Davis shut everything down with an amazing knockout that will have a high spot on his career highlight reel.

This definitely wasn’t a perfect performance from Davis. We’ve grown used to seeing him start out cautious out of the gate, biding his time before finding opening for big shots. But he seemed to be particularly affected from not having fought since April 2022.

But after the first three rounds, Tank started landing really hard shots on Martin, and Martin couldn’t withstand the constant forward pressure. Martin actually started Round 8 with a couple of decent combinations, but Tank put it all to bed with a vicious left-handed uppercut that was followed by the fight-ending punch.

Tank will have plenty of options to choose from for his next opponent, although the current rumors have a fight with Vasiliy Lomachenko as a strong possibility.
