On Friday night, June 3, 2016, undefeated lightweight professional boxer, Gervonta “Tank” Davis (Baltimore, Maryland/pro record: 15-0, with 14 KOs) will return to the ring for the second time this year, and face Mario “Huracan” Macias Rorozco (Iztacalco, Distrito Federal, Mexico/pro record: 28-18-0, with 14 KOs).
Davis-Rorozco is scheduled for eight rounds on Premier Boxing Champions, live on Spike TV, from Hard Rock Live at The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. In the main event, Rances Barthelemy will face Mickey Bey. In Davis’ last fight, April 1 in Washington, D.C., he defeated Mexico’s Guillermo Avila, live on Spike TV.
In that fight, Davis dropped Avila in round 5 with a straight left hand. Avila beat the count, but in the next round, Davis landed a barrage of uppercuts, forcing referee Michelle Myers to stop the fight at 0:29 of round 6. Davis earned his 15th win, while Avila’s record dropped to 16-6, with 13 KOs. This will be Davis’ second professional fight held in the state of Florida. On October 30, 2015, Davis defeated Cristobal Cruz by TKO at The Venue at UCF in Orlando.
The 21-year-old Davis discussed his upcoming fight. He said, “I’m looking forward to showcasing my talent in South Florida, so make sure you get your tickets now. I’m excited to put on a show for the fans at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. I’ve had good sparring leading up to the fight, so I’ll be ready for anything my opponent tries to do. I never take it easy on any opponent, and he will see that on June 3. Floyd said I would be in the ring a lot this year, and that will help me get ready for a title shot soon.
