Floyd Mayweather vs Gervonta Davis has been simulated – with the boxing legend winning by fifth round knockout.

Davis, 27, signed to Mayweather Promotions in 2015, just two years before his mentor officially retired a perfect 50-0.

Since then, ‘Tank’ has won belts in three weight classes, scored 24 knockouts in his 26 straight wins and returns against Rolando Romero on Saturday night.

However, it seems not all is well at Mayweather Promotions, as Davis recently revealed he wants to leave and explore the free-agent market this summer.

It comes after he accused Mayweather of being ‘jealous’ after his promoter announced his comeback on the same day he held a press conference with upcoming opponent Romero.

And now Boxing Fight Simulations have paired off Davis, 27, and Mayweather, 45, on EA Sports’ 2011 Fight Night Champions.

The YouTube channel, which has over six thousand subscribers, has become an online hit with boxing fans on social media.

Short videos featuring the digital likenesses of Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Lennox Lewis, and Mike Tyson, have racked up hundreds of thousands of views.

And while the game may be well past its sell-by date by now, it’s easy to work out who is who, thanks to Davis’ distinguishable tattoos.

In the computerised bout, Mayweather’s famous shoulder roll was on full display as he kept Davis at bay for most of the fight.

And it wasn’t long before Davis found himself on the canvas in the second round after being hit right in the ribs.

But a couple of crunching body shots of his own a few moments later saw Mayweather briefly double over in pain and go on the defensive.

Davis’ digital avatar did his best to try and stay in the fight, as he continued to swing for the fences in the hope of landing a Hail Mary.

However, in the fifth round Mayweather sent Davis crashing to the canvas with a left hook with just over a minute remaining.

Davis tried in vain to get back to his feet but ended up falling over in the process and the referee was left with no choice but to wave it off.
