Last night, 24-year-old Davis, who is promoted and mentored by Mayweather, beat former world champion Hugo Ruiz in Carson, California, in a one-sided bout that failed to reach the second round.
It's really too bad we got this, an exciting but meaningless stoppage, instead of the scheduled fight, a showdown between Davis and Abner Mares.
Elsewhere, Ruiz's compatriot Rey Vargas successfully defended his WBC world super-bantamweight title against Venezuela's Franklin Manzanilla, while Alberto Machado of Puerto Rico lost his WBA secondary super-featherweight belt to American Andrew Cancio.
And it appears Mayweather is setting up another exhibition bout for Nasukawa. I favored Davis to win, but a draw is fair since it was a great fight and could possibly headline a Mayweather Promotions card in Sam's Town in Las Vegas, Nevada. He got an exhibition bout with the guy Tenshin in Japan, in April.

He stopped the Japanese star inside the very first round after knocking him down three times.
Davis, unbeaten with a record of 20-0 with 19 knockouts, came in at 130.2 pounds in his first appearance on the scale, but returned to weigh in under the 130-pound limit at 129.8.
It's exactly how he should've done it, given that Ruiz was a late replacement who'd fought less than a month ago, and only past year moved up to featherweight from junior featherweight.
