Gervonta Davis kicks off his 2019 when he defends the WBA super featherweight championship against Hugo Ruiz on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. Originally, Davis (20-0, 19 KOs) was supposed to take on former three-division world champion Abner Mares. But Mares pulled out last week to what had been described as an elbow injury. There was more to the story, though, as Mares revealed Sunday on "Inside PBC Boxing" that he suffered a detached retina in his right eye during a training session and that was the real reason for pulling out of the fight. Scouring for a replacement, Ruiz wound up being chosen. Join DAZN to watch Machado vs. Cancio plus more than 100 fight nights a year Davis is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport and perhaps the best at 130 pounds. The issue with Davis has been any time he seemingly gains momentum, something happens to halt it. After demolishing Jose Pedraza to win the IBF title in January 2017, Davis followed it up four months later by going to England and stopping Liam Walsh in three rounds. Then, he got put in the high profile position to be on the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor card against Francisco Fonseca in August 2017. Davis, though, showed up missing weight by two pounds and was subsequently stripped of the belt.
