Dyah Davis is Far From Impressed By James DeGale

London - Dyah Davis is the former NABF champion who has faced and beaten undefeated fighters and shared the ring with the WBC world super middleweight champion Sakio Bika.

He is a tough American who is fully focused on reaching the very top of his sport and looking to add to his tally of 22 wins when he faces 2008 Olympic champion and WBC Silver super middleweight champion, James DeGale MBE, on November 16th at Glow, Bluewater, live on Channel 5 from 10pm.

Known as ‘Dangerous,’ he certainly has the record to give the former Team GB Olympian a tough encounter, as his namesake suggests.

But Davis also has the genetics, as he literally and truly has world-class pedigree coursing through his veins as the son of the 1976 Olympic gold medalist Howard Davis Jr.

Howard was one of the greatest amateur boxers, winning three US National championships and capturing a gold medal, picking up the Val Barker Trophy in the process, as the most outstanding boxer of the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, Canada.

This is no small feat, but one made all the more impressive by the roster of the USA Olympic Boxing Team at the games, that featured gold medalists Sugar Ray Leonard, Michael and Leon Spinks and Leo Randolph.

He turned professional after the Olympics and went on to a pro record of 36–6–1 with 14 knockouts, before retiring in 1996.

In his time as a pro, Howard challenged Jim Watt for the WBC lightweight title in Glasgow in 1980, losing a unanimous decision over 15 gruelling rounds.

He challenged Edwin Rosario in 1984 for the same title, losing to a split decision and he was stopped by James “Buddy” McGirt in 1988 for the IBF light welterweight title.

Now, son and super middleweight contender Dyah Davis pursues the world professional title that has eluded his name and is fighting to break out of the long and certainly impressive shadow cast by his father.

Focussed on claiming a world title, Davis will be putting everything he can into taking the next step towards this, when he meets DeGale at Glow on November 16th.
