Davis began his professional career at the age of 18 with a first-round knockout (KO) against Desi Williams.

However, it was his fight against José Pedraza on January 14th, 2017, that marked a significant turning point in Davis's career. The fight took place at the Barclays Center in New York on Showtime, and Davis defeated Pedraza in the seventh round to win the IBF super-featherweight title.
Following his win against Pedraza, Davis's career took an upward trajectory, and he continued to amass victories and titles. Since then, he has won four more world titles, including the WBA (Super) super-featherweight title twice, WBA (Regular) lightweight title, and WBA (Regular) super-lightweight title, with seven title defenses in total. Davis has notable victories over Léo Santa Cruz, Hugo Ruiz, Liam Walsh, José Pedraza, Ricardo Núñez, Mario Barrios, and Jesús Cuellar. The Southpaw has an exceptional knockout-to-win percentage of 93%, with 26 knockout wins and zero losses via KO.
