Undefeated five-time three-division world champion Gervonta Davis defends his WBA lightweight title against Isaac Cruz at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday December 5, which makes it Monday December 6 in the UK and Australia. The scheduled for twelve rounds world championship bout headlines the four-fight card live on pay-per-view on Showtime in the US and FITE TV in other countries.
In his previous bout in June, Davis (25-0, 24 KOs) moved up a weight class and claimed the WBA super lightweight title against Mario Barrios by TKO in the eleventh round. In October 2020 he knocked out Leo Santa Cruz in Round 6 and made the first successful defense of his WBA lightweight belt. Cruz (22-1-1, 15 KOs) was in action in June when he scored a unanimous decision against former WBC super featherweight champion Francisco Vargas. He took the fight against Davis on a month notice replacing Rolando Romero.
