In a battle of hard-swinging sluggers, unbeaten super featherweight star Gervonta Davis (21-0, 20 KO's) makes the second defense of his WBA Super Title against tough and focused world-ranked Ricardo N??ez (21-2, 19 KO's) of Panama Saturday, July 27, at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, USA, a battle not likely to make the distance.

The two warriors faced-off during a presser attended by promoter Leonard Ellerbe and WBA presidential adviser Jose Oliver Gomez.

In competitive undercards, Cuban veteran Yuriorkis Gamboa (29-2, 17 KO's) battles fellow former world champion Roman "Rocky" Martinez (30-3-3, 18 KO's) of Puerto Rico; and skilled southpaw Ladarius Miller (19-1, 6 KO's) squares off former WBA world titlist Jezzrel " Corrales (23-2, 9 KO's) of Panama.

Tickets can be purchased online from Ticketmaster, or in person at the Royal Farms tickets counter.

The action will be live on Showtime in the USA and on RPC Canal 4 in Panama.

The show is promoted by Mayweather Promotions in association with TGB Promotions and GTD Promotions.
