Tank Davis Notches A Splendid Knockout Over Frank Martin!


In his latest tour of duty, WBA lightweight champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (30-0, 28 KO’s) scored his most recent knockout victory. This time the victim of his devastating power was challenger Frank “The Ghost” Martin (18-1, 12 KO’s). As is usually the case, Tank didn’t do much in the first number of rounds as he took an assessment of what Martin was bringing to the table.

To his credit, The Ghost opened the fight in marvelous fashion. He moved very well, kept Davis at bay with his jab and slapped on tight clenches when in close. Over the course of the first half of the duel, Martin appeared to be doing exactly what he needed to do to be victorious. Yet, as the match wore on, with increasingly troublesome frequency, The Ghost was both willingly lingering in the corner and allowing Tank to leisurely walk to him while throwing free strikes. Against a fighter with such notorious power, this was a rather mindboggling error.

Unsurprisingly, this glaring flaw cost Martin dearly in the eighth round. While once again plastered to the ring ropes in the corner, and all but wearing a “hit me” sign, Tank slipped in a crunching left uppercut that froze Martin and then followed the shot with a lethal left hook that landed flush on the button.

The pair of punches left The Ghost limp and careening to the floor where his head bounced so hard it could be considered as the third punch in the already incapacitating combination. While splayed out on the ground, referee Harvey Dock easily made it to the count of ten. With this most recent victory secured, it will be interesting to see who Tank takes on in his next professional encounter.
