Ohara Davies Nears World Title Fight After Stopping Lewis Ritson in Eliminator

Ohara “Two Tanks” Davies (25-2, 18KO) could fight for a championship following a thrilling ninth-round stoppage win over rival Lewis “Sandman” Ritson (23-3, 13KO). Winning the WBA title eliminator puts him in sight for the May 13 winner between WBA Regular champion Alberto “La Avispa” Puello and one-time title challenger Rolando “Rolly” Romero.

Davies and Ritson both came to fight in this high-stakes title eliminator. From the sound of the bell, as both men began throwing punches, it was clear that Davies planned to attack the body.

Sandman gave a spirited effort but was getting outgunned throughout the fight. In the ninth round, Davies’ corner was screaming to attack the body, and he landed a debilitating left hook to the body that saw his opponent slowly crumble to the canvas. The referee finished the full ten count over a motionless Ritson.


Two Tanks has been rolling since losing to one-time title challenger Jack Catterall in 2018. In the post-fight interview of his win over Ritson, he took time to appreciate his progress towards fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming a champion.

“When I first got into boxing, becoming a world champion was my goal and my dream. I’m getting close to my dream. I’m going to achieve my goal and my dream and become a world champion.”

The next time Davies steps into the ring, it could be against the either an undefeated Dominican champion or one-time title challenger Romero. Two Tanks will be waiting for the winner as the junior welterweight division is beginning to heat up.
