Gervonta Davis kicks off his 2019 when he defends the WBA super featherweight championship against Hugo Ruiz on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. Originally, Davis (20-0, 19 KOs) was supposed to take on former three-division world champion Abner Mares. But Mares pulled out last week to what had been described as an elbow injury. There was more to the story, though, as Mares revealed Sunday on "Inside PBC Boxing" that he suffered a detached retina in his right eye during a training session and that was the real reason for pulling out of the fight. Scouring for a replacement, Ruiz wound up being chosen.

The issue with Davis has been any time he seemingly gains momentum, something happens to halt it. After demolishing Jose Pedraza to win the IBF title in January 2017, Davis followed it up four months later by going to England and stopping Liam Walsh in three rounds. Then, he got put in the high profile position to be on the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor card against Francisco Fonseca in August 2017. Davis, though, showed up missing weight by two pounds and was subsequently stripped of the belt. He returned from an eight-month layoff and knocked down Jesús Cuellar three times to win by third-round TKO and capture the WBA belt. For reasons unknown, Davis didn't step inside the ring for the remainder of 2018 even though he made it clear on social media that he wanted to fight. The 24-year-old has vowed that starting with Saturday's clash with Ruiz that he will fight three times in 2019. The 30-year-old Ruiz (39-4, 33 KOs) is a former bantamweight and super bantamweight champion. Most recently, Ruiz moved to featherweight and defeated Alberto Guevara by unanimous decision on the Manny Pacquiao-Adrien Broner undercard in January. Ruiz is a solid fighter, who will provide a harder test than most think, but it's a bout Davis should win. That being said, it's a fight, so you can never fully count anyone out. (All times Eastern.)
