    Gervonta Davis throws questionable punch to defeat Francisco Fonseca by knockout

    After failing to make weight, Gerrvonta Davis defeats Francisco Fonseca by 8th-round knockout with a back-of-the-head punch.

    Fonseca went down from a hook to the back of the head and could not get back up to make the ten-count. The end came after a weird fight where Davis did not look like himself and displayed a cockiness that was unbecoming of a star performance. 

    The first round was a true feeling out process with no clear winner while rounds 2 through 4 saw Tank delivering vicious uppercuts and body blows that showed signs of Mayweather-type greatness.
