 Gervonta Davis’ exciting ninth-round stoppage over Héctor Luis García on Saturday night on SHOWTIME PPV® in which Davis caused Garcia to retire on his stool in a dramatic, made-for-TV-moment, will air on SHOWTIME this Saturday, January 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, giving fans another chance to watch Davis’ methodical breakdown of the previously undefeated champion Garcia.

In addition, Roiman Villa’s thrilling comeback majority decision victory against formerly unbeaten Rashidi Ellis on the pay-per-view undercard will also be included in Saturday’s delayed telecast. Villa, who upset a previously undefeated fighter on SHOBOX: The New Generation® in September, sent Ellis to the canvas twice in the pivotal 12th round to clinch the decision.

The event set a new live gate record for ticket revenue for Capital One Arena, topping a previous Rolling Stones concert. The Baltimore-native Davis has now sold out arenas in Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York and Washington, D.C., cementing his status as boxing’s hottest, must-see young attraction.
