Davis post-fight quote:
“Tonight I just wanted to put on a great performance. I was scheduled to fight Abner Mares, but he had an injury so my main goal tonight was to make a great performance, which I did.
“I knew it was coming. When I touched the jab I saw his arm was in front of his face so if I threw a hook or uppercut it was right in line.
“I’m very confident that I will be more active this year. I have three, probably four fights lined up this year. I’m happy with my team and ready for the next.”
