Davis (26-0, 24 KOs) and Romero (14-0, 12 KOs) were initially slated to meet December 5 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. However, Romero was removed from the card five weeks before they were supposed to meet after a woman accused him of sexual assault. Isaac Cruz stepped in as his replacement and despite putting up a valiant effort, was outpointed by Davis, who overcame a left-hand injury that did not require surgery to preserve his unbeaten record. The result, though, snapped a 16-bout knockout streak for the Baltimore southpaw. Although Cruz (22-2-1, 15 KOs) suffered his first pro defeat, "Pitbull" is set to return to the ring sooner than Davis. The 23-year-old will face Cuban veteran Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-4, 18 KOs) in a 12-rounder on the Errol Spence Jr.-Yordenis Ugas undercard April 16 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
