The pair fought all through the 12 rounds before Davis was able to pull out a narrow unanimous decision win (116-112, 115-113, 115-113) to remain undefeated in 26 fights (26-0, 24 KOs).

After the fight, Davis said he hurt his hand around the sixth round, which he felt prevented him from knocking out Cruz and extending his KO streak to 16.

“I hurt my hand so I couldn’t get him out of there,” said Davis, a southpaw who barely threw a left hand over the final two rounds.

“He’s a shorter fighter so I was throwing down on the top of his head. I hit him with my knuckle and messed it up. I hurt my hand in the sixth round.”

“It was right around the fifth round I saw that his hand wasn’t working correctly,” Cruz said through an interpreter.
