Keyshawn Davis faced Nahir Albright in the lightweight ranks on October 14, initially winning a majority decision.
The result of the fight has now been overturned to a No Contest, as first reported by Boxrec’s Grey Johnson, and the 24-year-old rising star has reportedly been suspended for 90 days by the Texas Commission.
There has been no official confirmation from involved parties, and the exact reason for the ban is so far unavailable.
The news comes just days after Davis posted on social media about facing former two-weight world champion, Jose Pedraza, on December 9 in Florida.
As a standout amateur, Davis won silver at the 2019 Pan American Games, 2019 World Championships, and 2020 Summer Olympics. He turned professional one year later, and has built up a now-amended record of nine victories and zero losses.
Should his trajectory continue, he’s in line to be one of the top names in the 135lbs ranks, with a match-up against amateur rival, Andy Cruz, something fans would like to see down the line.
Albright – who managed a draw against Davis on one judge’s scorecard but lost on both others – took to social media to react to the news. He said:
“It was all a test from God, how I was gonna handle defeat and I didn’t fold or lost faith. I was sad [a little] but shook it off. Then woke up to this, I [no] longer have a loss on my record. It was already written. Took the leap of faith, went through the fire and didn’t get burnt.
Now we on to bigger and better things. Good luck to Keyshawn with whatever he got going on.”
As of writing, Davis is yet to publicly comment on the matter.
