American prodigy Keyshawn Davis will step up in competition against Richman Ashelley on next Saturday’s historic #Legacy event in Dubai.
The D4G Promotions event takes place at Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai on April 3, as Jamel Herring defends his WBO super-featherweight title against Carl Frampton in what is the biggest event to ever take place in the region.
Davis (1-0, 1 KO) is back following a superb win over Lester Brown in his professional debut in February, now turning his attention to Ashelley (10-1, 9 KOs), who has nine of his ten wins coming by knockout.
Davis 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 up-and-coming talents in world boxing.
Two Dubai-based prospects have been added to the undercard next week too, as undefeated Faizan Anwar (5-0, 4 KOs) meets Evgenii Vazem, and Fahad Al Bloushi (3-1, 1 KO) squares off with Suraf (2-1, 1 KO).
Elsewhere on the action-packed card next month, Zhankosh Turarov and Tyrone McKenna meet for the WBO Intercontinental super-lightweight title, four-weight world champion Donnie Nietes takes on Pablo Carillo for the vacant WBO International super-flyweight title, and Kazakhstan sensation Tursynbay Kulakhmet defends his WBC International super-welterweight title against 20-0 opponent Heber Rondon.
