The World Boxing Association (WBA) published its monthly rankings and its October awards with Gervonta Davis as the Boxer of the Month, and Naoya Inoue as the Honorable Mention.

Davis delivered Leo Santa Cruz what could be the KO of the year this Saturday at the Alamodome in San Antonio. In a fight that looked an even match on paper until the KO came in the sixth round, Davis confirmed himself as one of the best young fighters in the world and won the WBA Super Featherweight Super Championship and the WBA Lightweight title.

A left uppercut brought Santa Cruz down dramatically for Gervonta to seal one of the most impressive victories of his career. Although the Mexican was unconscious for a few minutes, he made a satisfactory recovery, to the relief of the fans.

For his part, Inoue got the Honorable Mention thanks to his KO in seven rounds against Australian Jason Moloney this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It was the Japanese’s second appearance in the United States during his career and he demonstrated why he is considered one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world today.

Both male and female rankings can be reviewed in the corresponding sections of the pioneering organization’s official website.
