Gervonta Davis beats Costa Rica's Francisco Fonseca

Mayweather and Mc Gregor meet in Las Vegas on Saturday in one of the biggest fights ever

Gervonta Davis vs. Francisco Fonseca started off on the wrong foot when Davis came in overweight for their 130-pound fight. This was slated to be his second title defense overall and his first in the United States.

"Now he took advantage of this punch right here", Davis continued, apparently implying that Fonseca was exaggerating the effect of the back-of-the-head contact.

Beyond taunting, Davis didn't box as sharply against Fonseca as he usually does.

There was no world title on the line tonight for Davis after he lost it at the scales yesterday for failing to make weight.

It was very hard to follow in the middle sector, but we stayed close, then we benefitted a little bit in the first and the last sector, but overall the auto was very good".

But the bout came to an underwhelming conclusion in the eighth round after Fonseca was hit with a short left hand to the back of his head which left him too groggy to continue, as he kneeled on the mat.

Fonseca couldn't wait to tell his side.

"He doesn't hit as hard as they say he hits", he said of Davis.

The Baltimore native walked out to the ring wearing a fuzzy blue hat, with matching furry stripes on his trunks.

Davis showboated early on before being rocked in the seventh round.

There were reports that Davis was ill during the week before the fight but if true, he refused to use that as an excuse for failing to make weight.

While Davis is still young and obviously has massive potential, talks of a possible showdown with Vasyl Lomachenko are surely premature at this point. He officially weighed in at 132-pounds-2 pounds over weight.

Gervonta Davis arrived in a pretty memorable outfit for his fight tonight!
