Gervonta Davis vs Frank Martin fight date, time, how to watch

This weekend Las Vegas will play host to two of boxing's best, as Gervonta "Tank" Davis and David Benavidez are featured on a loaded Premier Boxing Champions fight card.

This will be PBC's third card since announcing its new broadcast partnership with Prime Video, which began in March.

Davis will defend his WBA lightweight title against the undefeated Frank Martin in the main event, while the co-main event will see former 168-pound champion David Benavidez move up to the light heavyweight division to challenge former champion Oleksandr Gvozdyk for the interim WBC title.

Davis is one of the best punchers in boxing, having knocked out 93.1% of opponents he's faced. A former junior lightweight world champion, Davis was recently elevated by the WBA to full champion, marking his first title at lightweight.

Martin has risen from top prospect to a dangerous contender in the lightweight division. Under the tutelage Derrick James, the Boxing Writers Association of America's Trainer of the Year in 2022, Martin has defeated solid opponents in each of his last two fights but is looking at a major step up in Davis.

Frank Martin is 18-0 with 12 wins by knockout.

Martin is one of the top contenders at lightweight and will be challenging for his first world title on Saturday. The best win of his career came in December 2022 when he beat fellow undefeated contender Michel Rivera by unanimous decision.

He's since fought one time, beating then undefeated Artem Harutyunyan by unanimous decision in a less than stellar fight. He now steps up to face Davis, by far the toughest opponent of his career.

Martin is ranked No. 5 at lightweight by both The Ring and ESPN.

Gervonta 'Tank' Davis stats

Gervonta Davis is one of the best knockout punchers in the sport, but like many big punchers, he's not particularly active in the ring until he finds his opening and puts his opponent's lights out.

Davis throws the second-fewest punches per round in all of boxing with an average of 33.2, but he is top 10 in connect percentage, landing 35.2% of his punches. Davis' output in the ring may not be very high, but when he does throw, he tends to connect at a high rate.

While he's top 10 in total connect percentage, Davis has boxing's second-best power punch connect percentage, landing 47.7% of power punches thrown. Davis tends to lose lots of rounds due to a relative lack of activity in the ring, but it is almost inevitable that he will find a hole and capitalize with a brutal knockout shot.
