In the main event of the Showtime Pay-Per-View, Gervonta Davis emerged victorious against Ryan Garcia at T-Mobile Arena with a technical knockout at 1:44 of the seventh round.

Davis knocked Garcia down twice, with the second knockdown coming in the seventh round, due to a perfectly placed left to the body. This caused Garcia to take a knee, and he couldn't respond to the referee's count in time.

Baltimore's Davis, who was slightly more than a 2-1 favorite, has now knocked out 93 percent of his opponents overall, including 19 of his last 20 opponents. Garcia lost for the first time in nearly seven years as a pro.

Before Davis's knockout blow, Garcia landed a short right hand that made Davis tie him up, but Davis landed a left in an exchange later in the sixth round.

In the fifth round, Garcia covered up awkwardly, allowing Davis to land a right hook to his body.

In the fourth round, Davis partially blocked Garcia's right hand and shook his head before coming forward and landing a jab.

In the third round, both boxers were cautious, following being hurt in the previous round.

Garcia hurt Davis early in the second round with a right hand, and Davis held until he landed a crushing counter left hand on the inside, which sent Garcia to the seat of his trunks, but he beat the count.

In the first round, Davis mostly feinted and pawed with his jab, while Garcia came forward and threw a left hook.
