Digest: Baltimore boxer Gervonta Davis to face Mexico's Mario Rorozco Friday night in Florida

Baltimore boxer Gervonta "Tank" Davis (15-0, 14 knockouts) will face Mexico's Mario "Huracan" Macias Rorozco (28-18-0, 14 KOs) in a lightweight bout Friday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. The eight-round fight will be televised on Spike TV.

Davis, the 2012 national Golden Gloves champion, has six stoppage victories in 2015, including a third-round technical knockout of former world champion Cristobal Cruz. In Davis' last fight, April 1 at the D.C. Armory in Washington, he defeated Mexico's Guillermo Avila (16-6, 13 KOs). Davis landed a barrage of uppercuts after dropping Avila in the fifth round, forcing referee Michelle Myers to stop the fight 29 seconds into the sixth.

This will be Davis' second professional fight held in the state of Florida. On Oct. October 30, Davis defeated Cruz at The Venue at Central Florida in Orlando.

"I've had good sparring leading up to the fight, so I'll be ready for anything my opponent tries to do," Davis said in a news release. "I never take it easy on any opponent, and he will see that on [Friday]. Floyd [Mayweather] said I would be in the ring a lot this year, and that will help me get ready for a title shot soon."
