Gervonta "Tank" Davis Runs Over Jose Pedraza to Win IBF Title

In what could easily qualify for Knockout of the Mid-year and Fight of the Mid-year come June, Gervonta “Tank” Davis stripped Jose Pedraza of his 130-pound IBF belt in a blistering fight that ended with Pedraza’s butt on the canvas in the seventh round. Davis took the early rounds as it seemed Pedraza was trying to wear him down with counters from a distance. Being down a couple rounds come the fifth, Pedraza came out from his corner smoking, trying to put enough pressure on his man to break him down in the trenches. As the fight picked up speed, Davis and Pedraza traded verbal jabs–Pedraza began to let off chants of “WOO!” as he landed to Davis’ body repeatedly, slowing him down and looking as though he was going to take control going deeper into the fight.
