June 28: Ohara Davies Faces Ex-World Champ Miguel Vazquez at Historic York Hall

Davies will clash with former long-reigning lightweight world champion Vazquez at York Hall on June 28 – live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank.

Long-time super lightweight contender Ohara Davies (18-2, 14 KOs), last seen in October suffering a points defeat to WBO No. 1 contender Jack Catterall, returns to action June 28 against former long-reigning lightweight world champion Miguel Vazquez at the historic York Hall in London.

Vazquez (41-7, 15 KOs), a native of Guadalajara, Mexico, previously held the IBF world title for four years before losing to Mickey Bey via a controversial split decision in Las Vegas in September 2014.

Davies welcomes the challenge of facing one of the sport’s craftiest veterans.

Davies said: “It puts me back on the world scene and I feel like that’s where I truly belong. I’m ready to make amends and right all the wrongs from my last fight.

“I know what mistakes I made against Catterall and now I’m going to capitalise. I’ve had a quiet few months since then, but I’ve been training every day, so I’ll be the best me when I get in there.

“Some people said I should fight a journeyman and ease myself back into things, but I know what I can do.

“York Hall is not far from my house. I might even get the bus down there on the night! London is my hometown and I’m comfortable here. I have my friends and family here, and that means a lot to me.”

Stay tuned for announcements regarding more fights and fighters on the card, which will also be broadcast live on iFL TV.
