WBA super-featherweight champion Gervonta Davis retained his title with a first-round KO win over Hugo Ruiz on Saturday night, before sending a message of support to detained rapper 21 Savage.

Do you think Tenshin Nasukawa and Gervonta Davis will actually fight, or is Floyd Mayweather bluffing?

Instead, Davis could follow the lead of his promoter, Floyd Mayweather, and go to Japan for a boxing exhibition against Japanese kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa, whom Mayweather destroyed in the first round of their scheduled three-round New Year's Eve boxing exhibition at the Saitama Prefecture Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, about a half-hour drive outside of Tokyo. I'm proud of Tank. "So first it's Tenshin in April and then in May it's the real fight".

Davis improved to a mark of 21-0 with 20 wins by knockout as he defeated Ruiz at just 2:59 of the opening round.

The bout was contested at 147 pounds, far north of the weight Nasukawa typically fights at. Because it was an exhibition bout, the Japanese kickboxer is still technically undefeated.

Mayweather said that he earned $9 million - plus a $1 million bonus - for the exhibition with Nasukawa and said he would likely participate in future exhibition fights.
