Proving far too fast for his slow-moving challenger, De Leon (190) started well and hurt his man with a big right to the jaw in the opening session. Well ahead after six rounds De Leon was pegged back and hurt in the seventh and eighth before dropping Davis (194¼) with a right to the jaw in the ninth. Although De Leon tried hard to finish the fight there and then and banged away at Davis’ now swollen left eye in the tenth he virtually stopped working in the final two rounds due to a damaged right hand.
