Olympic silver medallist Keyshawn Davis of the United States defeated Jose Pedraza, beating the previous world champion more quickly than Vasiliy Lomachenko or Gervonta Davis had.


After a moment of crossed words earlier in fight week, Davis (10-0, 7KOs) a 24-year old boxer from the United States called out Lopez after putting on an almost faultless display to knock out and stop the former world champion Pedraza in six rounds. 


“God gave me a spectacular performance. I surprised myself but not too much because I know what I am capable of but when you go in there and actually live it out, I’m proud of myself that I did that,” said Davis in media reports.


With this victory, Davis is now one step closer to contending for a big title at 140 pounds, but his next goal is to travel to the UK to take on Adam Azim. 

The last time Azim(10-0, 7KOs) from England  competed was on February 3 at the SSE Arena in London, where he triumphed in five rounds against Enock Poulson to retain his EBU title. The European rating organization has since mandated that he defend his championship against domestic opponent Dalton Smith.

“Adam Azim has been calling my name out for some time now. I would love to fight Adam. A lot of these fighters be calling these names out but [are] not willing to take the fights. I’m willing to fight anybody,” said Davis.


“Adam is a hell of a fighter. He has power, and he’s at 140 pounds. It’s another challenge for me. I’m not taking anything away from Adam, but I think I’m different. I know Adam has never been in a ring with a guy like me. I will stop Adam Azim. I know that for a fact,” he added.


“If Adam is willing to fight me, I will play the game, and we will fight in the UK and make it a mega sell-out fight. One thing about the UK fans is they love fights. I feel like once I stop Adam, they will [still] want to watch me fight again there because I put on crowd-pleasing fights,” he continued.
