Professional career

Early career

Davis made his professional debut against Lester Brown on February 27, 2021. In the second round, Davis dropped his opponent with a left hook to the head. Brown managed to recover from the knockdown and continue, however Davis secured victory after landing a combination of heavy punches which forced the referee to step in and end the bout.Davis' second bout as a professional was against Richman Ashelley on April 3, 2021. Davis was dominant throughout the bout and in the fourth round, landed a number of heavy punches which visibly hurt his opponent. This resulted in Ashelley retiring at the end of the round after his corner team judged that he was unable to continue.

Davis was taken the distance for the first time as a professional when he fought against Jose Antonio Meza on the undercard of Canelo Álvarez vs. Billy Joe Saunders on May 8, 2021. Davis won via wide unanimous decision after winning every round on each of the three scorecards.
