AMERICAN SENSATION KEYSHAWN DAVIS RETURNS IN DUBAI
Top prospect Keyshawn Davis will return to the ring on April 3 when he competes on the huge D4G Promotions card taking place at Caesars Palace Dubai.
The event is in association with Top Rank and Queensberry Promotions, and is billed as ‘Legacy,’ with the main event seeing WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring defend his title against Carl Frampton.
Davis (1-0, 1 KO) makes a quick return after an incredible professional debut on the Canelo Alvarez undercard in February, where he earned an emphatic second round knockout win over Lester Brown.
The 22-year-old also had a sensational amateur career, becoming a 2017 Golden Gloves champion and 2019 World Championship silver medalist, and is regarded as one of the best prospects in world boxing.
Davis said: “This is a dream come true. I want to give a special thank you to D4G and Ahmed Seddiqi for the opportunity to showcase my first professional fight abroad.
“I am excited to establish myself as an international boxer. My pro debut show in Miami was a big one, but I’m going to put on an even bigger show in Dubai.”
Elsewhere on card on April 3, Zhankosh Turarov defends his WBO Intercontinental super-lightweight title against Tyrone McKenna, plus four-weight world champion Donnie Nietes makes his long-awaited comeback, with more fights set to be announced soon.
