Vasyl Lomachenko got back on track with a victory
Vasyl Lomachenko got back on track with a victory

Gervonta Davis remained undefeated in handing Mario Barrios his first loss on Saturday, while Vasyl Lomachenko cruised to victory in his return to the ring after losing his lightweight title belts last year.

Davis (25-0) claimed Barrios' WBA super-lightweight title with an 11th-round TKO in Atlanta, becoming a world champion in a third different weight class. 

Davis dropped Barrios (26-1) with a hard left to the body with just over a minute remaining in the penultimate round but the Texan managed to regain his feet. 

A quick left to the face by Davis immediately after the restart staggered Barrios and led the referee Thomas Taylor to end the fight. 

The victory allowed Davis to add the super-lightweight strap to the WBA lightweight and super-featherweight belts he already holds. 

Undefeated Tank, 26, said: "I made it tough. I definitely could have made it easier but I went up two weight classes and I got the job done.

"I hit him with some clean shots but I’m the type of fighter that wants to catch you with clean shots. I don’t just want to throw any type of shot. 

"The shots I was throwing were missing but eventually I caught up with him. I knew for sure if I catch, I’m crackin'! I caught him and it showed."

In Las Vegas, Lomachenko (15-2) defeated Masayoshi Nakatani (19-2) by TKO in the ninth round after a dominant showing throughout the contest. 

It was his first fight since losing by unanimous decision to Teofimo Lopez in their lightweight unification bout on October 17. 

Fighting without a world title at stake for the first time since his professional debut in 2013, Lomachenko did what he needed to do against the Japanese fighter, who also had dropped a decision to Lopez. 

The Ukrainian pounded on his taller opponent from the opening bell and appeared to have taken each round handily before the referee stopped the fight following a flurry of shots by Lomachenko.
