Pedraza-Davis to happen on DeGale-Jack undercard
IBF World super featherweight (130 lbs.) champion Jose Pedraza (22-0, 12 KOs) will be will be making his third defense of his title on January 14 against top prospect Gervonta Davis (16-0, 15 KOs) on the undercard of the James DeGale vs. Badou Jack super middleweight unification card on Showtime Championship Boxing at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Davis, whom is only 22 years-old has passed the eye test and now is ready to fight for his first world title.
Earlier this year Davis explained to myself on our website’s podcast, that “…being around Robert Easter and other world champions let him know he was ready to be a champion.”
On the other hand, Pedraza has spent most of his tenure as champion complaining about how he has been promoted by Lou DiBella as he feels Felix Verdejo, a fellow Puerto Rican, has a much larger following with less accomplishments.
The bout would end up and on the James DeGale versus Badou Jack undercard from Brooklyn, New York and be a part of Premier Boxing Champions return for a strong 2017
