Gervonta Davis is looking to prove he’s the man to beat at both junior lightweight and lightweight, and cement his status as the new king of pay-per-view boxing. Leo Santa Cruz stands in his way, hoping to finally receive the respect and attention he should have already earned in his amazing career.

Davis vs. Santa Cruz live stream — The Main Event Preview


 All times listed are Eastern.

• Main card: 9 p.m., Showtime Pay-Per-View

The full fight card, as always subject to change, is as follows:

Showtime Pay Per View Event

• Gervonta Davis (23-0) vs. Leo Santa Cruz (37-1-1)

• Mario Barrios (25-0) vs. Ryan Karl (18-2)

• Regis Prograis (24-1) vs. Juan Heraldez (16-0-1)

• Isaac Cruz (19-1) vs. Diego Magdaleno (32-3)

Gervonta “Tank” Davis (23-0) is the current WBA Regular lightweight champion after moving up in weight from junior lightweight, where he held multiple world championships. Davis is undefeated and has been rising as a big name in the sport, and his team includes boxing great and promoter Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Mayweather has already crowned Tank his successor as the next pay-per-view boxing superstar even though this is Davis’ first pay-per-view headlining event. After this fight, there are numerous options for Davis in a stacked lightweight division, including the WBA Super lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez Jr.

Leo “The Earthquake” Santa Cruz (37-1-1) is the WBA junior lightweight champion, and he’s hoping an upset here could get him the respect he already deserves. Santa Cruz has a long resume filled with big wins to become champion at three different weight classes. He's beaten big names like Abner Mares and Miguel Flores, and he avenged his lone loss to Carl Frampton by beating him in their rematch. It’s an unexpected situation where both his junior lightweight and Davis’ lightweight titles are on the line in this fight, but a win will make him a four weight class champ, and set up Santa Cruz for much bigger fights.
