The newly-minted combined champion in the second featherweight (up to 59 kg) and lightweight (up to 61.2 kg), American Jervonta Davis (24-0-0, 23 KO) reacted warmly to the congratulations on the victory from his rival, Mexican Leo Santa Cruz (37- 2-1, 19 KO), which led the showtime boxing evening at Alamodome Stadium in San Antonio, Texas today.
Recall that the fight lasted until the 6th round, in which Davis knocked out Santa Cruz with a heavy left uppercut, after which he could not recover for a long time.
“I am glad that you and your father are okay. Thank you for the opportunity to share the ring with a real warrior. I am eternally grateful,” the champion wrote on his Twitter.
