“I don’t know, I want to get better and better and better, there’s no such thing as a perfect performance but I definitely think I can do better than I did tonight. God works in mysterious ways, this has to have happened in order for me to learn something and I definitely learned something tonight.”

Despite facing significant media attention from outlets like ESPN and DAZN, he had challenges early in the match. Davis, proving to be a tougher opponent, resisted Walsh’s renowned power in the initial round. The match saw a controversial moment in the second round when Walsh’s three-punch combo seemed to down Davis.

However, Davis argued he was rising when counted out. New York’s amateur rules, which are stringent due to the sport’s novelty in the state, might have contributed to the early stoppage.
