Ohara Davies promises flashy performance against Miguel Vazquez

RINGSIDE 11/06/2019

Ohara Davies has told the ESPN+ audience they can expect some top-class entertainment when he faces Miguel Vazquez over a scheduled 10 rounds at York Hall on July 28.

Hackney super-lightweight ‘Two Tanks’ (18-2, 14 KOs) faces off with former world champion Vazquez (41-7, 15 KOs) on an #MTKFightNight that will also be broadcast live on iFLTV and watched around the world.

As he prepares to launch an assault on world-level, Davies welcomes the opportunity to show off his famous power on a significant stage.

Davies said: “The American audience can expect excitement, entertainment and a knockout. They can expect skill and class – all iced with a touch of arrogance.

“There’ll only be a touch of arrogance for this fight. I’m trying to calm it down now. I’m going to turn the skill and the focus up and the arrogance down.

“I’ve been a pro for just over five years and these basic, simple lessons I’m just learning now. I’ve been stubborn throughout my boxing career.

“Because my character is quite a stubborn one, I’ve learned these basic lessons I’m talking about late but it’s better late than never…”

Davies was last seen suffering a narrow points defeat to WBO world No. 1 Jack Catterall back in October.

Davies vs. Vazquez tops one of the best bills at the iconic London venue in recent times with Chantelle Cameron’s WBC final eliminator against Anisha Basheel, Ryan Walsh’s British featherweight title defence against Lewis Paulin, Anthony Yigit’s super-lightweight clash with Siar Ozgul and much more to look forward to.
