Gervonta Davis Destroys Barrios as Mayweather's Advice Helps Him Become Lightweight Champion - Video

Gervonta "Tank" Davis has continued his winning streak, triumphing in his fight against Mario Barrios and claiming the WBA (Regular) super lightweight championship, while Floyd Mayweather advised him in between the rounds. 

"I knew [Barrios] was hurt. I just had to catch him at the right time", Davis said later. "Floyd came to me and was honest, he told me I was down. He said, 'Show me that you are great'. This man set the tone, I'm just following in his footsteps. Floyd, I appreciate you. I'm thankful to be in this position".

"My coach was telling me to go to a jab side but me, I'm southpaw, so I faked like I was going left and threw my hook over the top, that's how I caught him", Davis said.

While the young boxer faced a lot of pressure from Barrios in the first round, he managed to deliver several powerful uppercuts, coming out on top in the 10th round and then dropping his opponent to his knees in the 11th and winning by TKO.

"I have never been a hater, congrats to Tank. He came in here and did his thing", Barrios said after the fight. "This was nothing short of an exciting fight and that's what we came here to do. I'll be back".
