According to a communication received by Boxrec.com's Grey Johnson, who reported that the Texas Commission has overturned the initial decision declaring Keyshawn Davis the winner in the bout against Nahir Albright has been reversed, resulting in a change to a no-decision outcome. The original outcome was a majority decision win for Davis as one judge had the fight a draw, and two had in favor of Davis.
This comes as a disappointment as yesterday, Mike Coppinger of ESPN.com reported that Keyshawn Davis would take a step-up in competition against former two-division world champion, Jose Pedraza, who was to fight on December 9th in Flordia. Davis will have a 90-day suspension due to the rule violation, pulling him from the December 9th card. To further add to the validity of the information, BoxRec.com has Davis versus Albright listed as a no-contest.
"I just received an e-mail from the commission in Texas that Keyshawn Davis vs. Nahir Albright has been overturned from a Keyshawn Davis win to a no-decision. Davis has also been placed on a 90-day suspension for a rules violation and will not be eligible to fight this year," tweeted out @BoxRecGrey from his social media account this afternoon.
No cause has been given for the failed drug test at this time, but given the length being three months it would appear to not be a very serious infraction.
When reaching out to parties involved we were unable to get a response at the present moment.
Albright posted the following statement on his Instagram with a tweet of the original news.
"Let the Hater Talk, While God Work," stated Albright on social media.
Davis has not made an official statement since the news broke, nor has his promoter, Top Rank Inc.
