Gervonta Davis v Frank Martin: WBA lightweight championship – live

Key events

Preamble

Hello and welcome to tonight’s WBA Lightweight Championship fight between Gervonta Davis and Frank Martin. The popular Davis, a native of Baltimore and undefeated in 29 professional fights, returns to action for the first time since last year’s seventh-round knockout of Ryan Garcia, which seemed to cement his status as the face of American boxing. He will defend his title at 135 pounds against Martin, an undefeated challenger from Indianapolis.

Most boxing fans prefer to see Davis with the other stars in or around his weight class, such as Devin Haney or Shakur Stevenson. Those fights could happen, but for now we’ll settle for Martin, who has done nothing but beat the names before him while building an 18-0 record with 12 knockouts.

A notable bout on the undercard is a title fight scheduled for 12 rounds between David Benavidez and Oleksandr Gvozdyk for the vacant WBC interim light heavyweight title. That should happen in about 15 minutes. Then it’s time for the main event.

There’s much more to come.
