Last night, Floyd Mayweather protege Gervonta Davis delivered a thunderous, first-round knockout win over short-notice replacement opponent Hugo Ruiz, retaining his WBA super-featherweight belt in the process.

The fight was Davis' first title defense since winning the belt past year to become a two-time world champion.

Even with a last-minute replacement opponent and nearly losing his title on the scales, Gervonta Davis is still the WBA "Super" champion at 130 pounds.

And it appears Mayweather is setting up another exhibition bout for Nasukawa. Yes he's fighting Tenshin in an exhibition bout in Japan'. "April is Tenshin. May is the real fight".

"Ruiz didn't answer me", Reiss said.

Whilst the fight details have yet to be released, it promises to be another money-making venture for Mayweather, the former five-weight world champion.

South Korea signs deal to pay more for United States troops
Most US troops were withdrawn in 1949 but they returned the next year to fight alongside South Korea in the 1950-53 Korean war. South Korea will pay US$890 million for the operation of the 28,500-strong U.S.

It was Davis' 12th knockout in succession and 20th in 21 professional fights, all of which have been victories. He said afterward he wants to fight at least three more times this year.

The fight itself was half the story as the over 8,000 people in attendance, mostly came for Davis whether to cheer or boo, they were invested in his fight.

"We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight], if that's okay with him", Mayweather stated (via Boxing Scene).

The Japanese was unceremoniously beaten by Mayweather on New Year's Eve, who needed just 136 seconds to force Tenshin's corner to throw in the towel. "I was scheduled to fight Abner Mares, but he had an eye injury, so my main goal tonight was to make a great performance, which I did".

Mayweather said that he earned $9 million - plus a $1 million bonus - for the exhibition with Nasukawa and said he would likely participate in future exhibition fights.
