Two-time WBC super middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell will face Kyrone Davis in a 12-round eliminator for the World Boxing Council super middleweight title.
It`s headlining a card that will air on FOX from the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles.
Dirrell (33-2-1, 24 KOs), a two-time WBC 168-pound world champion, is a battle-hardened veteran who never walks away from a challenge. Dirrell, 36, won the title for the first time with a unanimous decision over Sakio Bika in 2014. The Flint, Michigan fighter lost the title the following year to Badou Jack by majority decision. He had six straight wins after that loss to get back into position and fight for the championship again.
He won the title with a technical decision victory over Avni Yildirim in 2019. Anthony is the younger brother of Andre Dirrell, who won a bronze medal as a member of the US Olympic boxing team in 2004.
“I feel great, camp has been great and it feels good to get back in the ring and fight a WBC eliminatory. Kyrone Davis has fought some good fighters, but never someone of my quality. We’re going to have a good fight.” Dirrell commented.
Davis (15-2, 6 KO) will face the toughest challenge of his career when he faces the more experienced, more seasoned Dirrell. Davis, 26, of Monmouth, NJ, will move up to super middleweight for this fight.
His last fight was a TKO victory over Antonio Todd at middleweight in January 2020. His only two losses were against Junior Castillo and Patrick Day in 2018.
“I have worked very hard and I am grateful for the opportunity and I plan to make the most of it. A victory will be one more step towards winning the world title,” said Davis.
