‘Tank” Davis Knocks Out Frank Martin To Take Home $25M

Davis knocks out Martin in 8th round.

It was a knockout finish to an exciting night of fights from Las Vegas.

Gervonta Davis defended his WBA lightweight title against Frank Martin in the main event with a highlight reel knockout in the eighth round. Davis improves to 30-0, with 28 wins by knockout. Martin falls to 18-1, suffering the first defeat of his career.

Davis hadn’t fought since April of last year and had a typically slow start, as Martin won the majority of the rounds in the first half of the fight, countering well off of Davis’ pressure.

Davis began to heat up in the middle rounds and in round eight he caught Martin against the ropes with a big uppercut, dazing his opponent. Martin dropped his guard and Davis followed the uppercut with a huge left hook that sent Martin down for the count.

 Davis set for hefty payday with estimated earnings up to $25 million, while Martin expected to take home $3.25 million.
