Undefeated lightweight world champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (25-0) fights the ultra-aggressive Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz (22-1-1), one of the hardest hitters in the division, in a title showdown that promises to be explosive right from the first bell. So read on as we explain all the details you need on how to watch a Davis vs Cruz live stream and catch all the boxing action online from anywhere in the world.
Date: Sunday, December 5
Venue: Staples Center, Los Angeles, California
Davis vs Cruz time (approx): 10pm ET / 7pm PT / 3am GMT / 2pm AEDT
Of course, you can’t mention punching power without a salute to Davis’s extraordinary 96% knockout rate.
The American’s fists have decided his past 16 consecutive fights, an extraordinary six-year run that has included title fights at super featherweight, lightweight, and super-lightweight.
Cruz – four years Davis’ junior at 23 years old – has already racked up 24 professional fights, including five in the past two years. But it’s his 53-second annihilation of Diego Magdaleno last year that put him on the map, a brutal demonstration of body-punching that twice sent the former lightweight contender sprawling in under a minute.
The Mexican was parachuted in as a late replacement for Rolando Romero, and this fight should be all the more thrilling for it. Follow our guide below to watch a Davis vs Cruz live stream online from anywhere.
