The undefeated American went 25-0 after the unanimous decision but revealed that he had injured his hand during the match.

Davis, 27, said: “At the start of the fight, he was strong.

“I feel like the fight is going on, he is breaking down. But I injured my hand, so I couldn’t get him out of there.”

Cruz, 23, was only filled out five weeks after Rolando Romero, 26, was withdrew amid sexual assault allegations.

Mexicans push Floyd Mayweather’s Protege ‘The tank’ by any means, but with no intention of a rematch, as Davis answered ‘the hell no’ when asked.

Cruz said after the defeat: “I have nothing to say. The fans are talking about who won this fight. “

Davis was the aggressor throughout the first half of the fight, prioritizing the top lane when Cruz charged.

But by the second half of the match, Davis was only a stab wound due to an injured right hand.

Enough to see him win a points judgment and remain undefeated, with unified lightweight champion George Kambosos, 28, starting.

Kambosos stuns Teofimo Lopez, 24, for the titles and now looks set to take on Devin Haney, 23, who just beat JoJo Diaz, 29.

But after Davis’ win, lightweight star Ryan Garcia, 23, called out his longtime rival.

Garcia tweeted: Gervonta stay away from c tier warriors fighting, out of all lightness he is the weakest!!!

“His hardest test was Leo Santa Cruz, almost lost tonight, bring it in I’ve been calling you out for a while…”
