Gervonta Davis vs. Isaac Cruz face off in a Sunday lightweight title bout on Showtime pay-per-view. Here are the fight details and how to watch. 

Gervonta Davis was initially supposed to fight Mayweather Promotions stablemate, Rolly Romero, on Sunday, Dec. 5, but Romero was pulled. However, fight night goes on with Davis fighting the talented Isaac Cruz.

Cruz was supposed to fight on the undercard but was elevated to the main event against Davis after sexual assault allegations were made against Romero. Romero was more of a power-punching threat, but Cruz still packs a stiff shot and is a more refined boxer than Romero.

Davis is the WBA “regular” lightweight and super lightweight champion, but this bout is staged in the lightweight division. This is a rare occasion where Davis has the size advantage over his opponent. He’s more than 1-inch taller and enjoys a 4-inch reach advantage.

There are a total of four contests featured on the Showtime pay-per-view card with several title eliminators on deck. Here’s how you can catch all the boxing action.
