Best Pro Performance


Gervonta Davis

West Baltimore boxer Gervonta Davis predicted he'd defeat IBF junior lightweight champion Jose Pedraza in the eighth round of their Jan. 14 title fight.

Davis was wrong; he knocked out Pedraza in the seventh round.

The 23-year-old Davis (19-0, 18 KO's), a protege of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr., became the first Baltimore fighter to win a world championship since Hasim Rahman beat Lennox Lewis for the undisputed heavyweight title in 2001.
