Assassin new edition Israel Dufus to fight in Tijuana on Nov 18
New Assassin Boxing signing, Israel Duffus will have his first fight under his new regime on November 18th in Tijuana, Mexico, on a show put together by Gabriel Quinones under his own promotional banner, Promociones Quiñones
Duffus, who has picked up 15 pro wins since turning to the paid ranks in 2011, after a great amateur career, and is looking for his 5th straight win on November 18th. Duffus began his career as a teenager at middleweight, and has slowly moved up the weights, to where today he is a credible light-heavyweight.
On the journey, Duffus has had 4 defeats across his career, however, 3 of them defeats came at an unnatural weight for the Panama born boxer, where he moved to cruiserweight for a short stint.
Based in LA on the West Coast of America, Duffus was last out in March, where he picked up a great win against the durable Michael Gbenga.
The hard hitting Panama fighter currently trains with Justin Furtune, who works in conjunction with the world famous, Freddie Roach.
Duffus, a dangerous fighter, has had 12 KO wins, with his signature fight coming against 7-0 prospect, Ryan Bourland, in 2015 on a Top Rank show, where Duffus KO’d Bourland inside the first round.
Duffus, is excited to get back on the title trail, and aims to pick up a couple of victories before Christmas, ahead of a busy 2018, where the 25-year-old will look to secure himself a title fight to ensure he moves up the rankings.
Manager and founder of Assassin Boxing, Kaz Evans, commented.
‘This is a great first test for Israel, as we begin our journey together. We will build him in to a real credible name in this division, and hope with a couple of outings before Christmas, we can really step up training in 2018 and have a key focus and target, and get him into the big fights he deserves’.
