THE RISE is the latest in a collection of digital offerings from @ShowtimeBoxing that delivers an exclusive look at the personalities, training camps and fight nights of boxing’s biggest names and future stars. Other original, digital-exclusive franchises from SHOWTIME Sports include DAY IN CAMP, FIGHT NIGHT, THE APPROACH and RING RESUME, an all-encompassing lineup of content available on SHOWTIME Sports online platforms and tailored specifically for a digital audience.

In part one of THE RISE: GERVONTA DAVIS, viewers go back to where it all started for “Tank,” Upton Boxing Club in Baltimore. Davis speaks of unimaginable levels of violence and drugs on virtually every corner and shares how his love for boxing and his coaches and teammates kept him on the path to greatness.

Davis will become the first world champion from Baltimore to make a homecoming title defense in nearly 80 years when he faces hard-hitting Panamanian Ricardo Núñez on Saturday, July 27 on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) from Royal Farms Arena.
