Perhaps the new KO of the Year leader led to some big reactions from fighters on social media.

As soon as Gervonta “Tank” Davis landed his perfect counter left uppercut, the fight was over, and the reactions came pouring in on social media.

Fans, media, fighters, everyone is buzzing about Davis’ unreal knockout of Santa Cruz in the sixth round, which gave “Tank” titles in two weight classes in the Showtime PPV main event tonight from San Antonio.

The 25-year-old Davis (24-0, 23 KO) and Santa Cruz (37-2-1, 19 KO) had a great fight for six rounds, with the 32-year-old Santa Cruz winding up forced into a bit of a firefight with Davis. This was hugely entertaining, and it was terrific fun to watch, but as brave and as tough as Santa Cruz was, it wound up his undoing. Davis simply had too much power, and when he connected on that counter shot — which he was looking to land flush from early in the fight — it was over.
