From Sun staff reports

Gervonta "Tank" Davis of Baltimore and Upton Boxing Center needed just 1 minute, 15 seconds to defeat Mexico's Alberto "Ironman" Mora by technical knockout in their scheduled eight-round bout Friday night at the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J.

Davis (11-0 as a pro, 10 knockouts) floored Mora (5-4, 1 KO) with an uppercut a few seconds into the fight. After Mora beat the count, Davis, 20, backed him up with a body shot and followed up with a combination that knocked out Mora's mouthpiece.

Davis won his previous fight, Feb. 20, in 47 seconds, knocking out Puerto Rico's Israel "Macho" Suarez (4-5-2, 1 KO) at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
