The featured bouts on the card begin at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT). The main event will take place later in show.

Round 1

Classic feel-out roung. Both guys jabbed, Garcia a little more. That was it. They’re just getting their bearings.

Round 2

Down goes Garcia! Weird round. Garcia went after Davis at several junctions, prompting Davis to hold Garcia. Then, with a minute to go, Davis landed a short left that put Garcia down. He wasn’t hurt badly but he felt it.

Round 3

Uneventful round compared to the previous one. Both guys missed a lot of punches. Interesting, though: Davis is now clearly the aggressor while Garcia is fighting cautiously. Hard knockdowns will do that.

Round 4

Competitive round, although Davis probably won it. This is essentially a chess match, both guys trying to figure out how to land the big shot without getting hit with it. A lot of drama.

Round 5

Same pattern. Neither guy is landing many punches. Davis did land several body shots, which might’ve won him the round. Waiting for something dramatic to happen again.

Round 6

Garcia landed a good right hand early, which just pissed off Davis. Tank then picked up his attack, including more to the body. Davis is outboxing Garcia and doing enough to win rounds, although this one was closer.

Round 7

Knockout! Davis hurt Garcia with a body shot midway through the round, forcing Garcia to take and knee. And he didn’t get up before being counted out.

Davis landed a straight left to the right side of Garcia, which hurt him and made him turn away from Davis. He tried to continue fighting but he evidently was in too much pain. The took a knee, hung his head and stayed down.
