Gervonta Davis beats Ryan Garcia via a brutal body shot in Round 7


In a matchup between two of the brightest young stars in boxing today, it was expected that Gervonta "Tank" Davis' advantage in power would be the difference.


In the end, it surely was as Davis (29-0, 27 KOs), arguably the top knockout artist in the sport today, floored Ryan Garcia in Round 2 before finishing him off with a body shot in Round 7 to score a resounding one-punch knockout on Saturday inside a sold-out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.


Garcia (23-1, 19 KOs) was game throughout and landed a series of single power shots to get Davis' attention, was unable to beat the count following a sneaky counter left hand to the body.


The 24-year-old social media star went down to one knee after a delayed reaction as blood flowed from his nose but couldn't regroup as referee Thomas Taylor counted Garcia out just as he rose to his feet at 1:44 of Round 7.
