Professional Career

Davis made his professional boxing debut in early 2013 in a bout against Desi Williams; he won in the first round via knockout. By the summer of 2014, Davis had amassed an 8-0 record. He continued his undefeated streak throughout the rest of the year and into 2015, becoming the first person to stop Israel Suarez and Alberto Mora. Davis remained undefeated in 2016, defeating Guillermo Avila and Mario Antonio Macias.

In early 2017, Davis challenged the undefeated José Pedraza for the IBF super featherweight title. He ultimately won the fight via knockout in the seventh round to claim the title. Davis went on to successfully defend the title against Liam Walsh, whom he beat via stoppage. However, before his next defense, he was stripped of his title for declining to weigh in, rendering the IBF title vacant. Davis ended up winning the fight against Francisco Fonseca.

In March of 2018, Davis went up against JesĂșs Cuellar for the WBA super featherweight title, which he won after knocking out Cuellar in the third round. Early in 2019, he successfully defended his title against Hugo Ruiz. Davis made a second successful defense that summer against Ricardo NĂșñez. At the end of 2019, he moved up to the lightweight division and won the WBA lightweight title by defeating Yuriorkis Gamboa. Davis successfully defended that title on Halloween in 2020 by defeating LĂ©o Santa Cruz via stoppage; he also claimed Santa Cruz's WBA super featherweight title.

In June of 2021, Davis moved up to the super lightweight division and faced undefeated WBA champion Mario Barrios. Although it was a competitive fight, Davis ended up winning via technical knockout. Later in the year, he moved back down to the lightweight division and fought Isaac Cruz. The bout had Davis going the 12-round distance for the first time in his career; he ultimately won via unanimous decision. Kicking off 2022, Davis made a successful defense of his lightweight title against Rolando Romero, whom he had been scheduled to fight the previous year before Romero was pulled due to sexual abuse allegations. The fight was Davis's only of 2022. Early the next year, he faced undefeated WBA super featherweight champion HĂ©ctor Garcia, whom he beat via corner retirement in the eighth round.
