LAS VEGAS - Former World Champion Ishe "Sugar Shay" Smith will now face tough Illinois contender Ryan "Dangerous" Davis on Friday, May 2 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. He will replace WBA Super Welterweight Champion Erislandy "The American Dream" Lara after he pulled out from the fight to face Canelo Alvarez on July 12.

Also in previously announced bouts on the May 2 FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes' broadcast will be rising lightweight star Mickey "The Spirit" Bey, who will meet hard-hitting Mexican veteran Alan "Explosivo" Herrera in a 10-round matchup and in the televised opener, Argentina's Jesus Cuellar squares off with former World Champion Rico Ramos in a 12-round bout for Cuellar's WBA Interim Featherweight World Title.

Ishe "Sugar Shay," (25-6, 11 KOs), whose February 2013 win over Cornelius "K9" Bundrage for the IBF Super Welterweight title was one of the most inspirational boxing stories of the year. Smith made his fans at home and around the globe proud as he became the first Las Vegas native to win a world championship. Smith lost his belt to Carlos Molina in a controversial split decision last September. On May 2, the 35-year-old is back on the ring against Ryan Davis and a step closer to another title shot.

East Saint Louis, Illinois' Ryan "Dangerous" Davis (24-13-3, 9 KOs) is a 15-year professional and a fearless competitor who will fight anyone at anytime, earning him the respect of fans and his peers. A rugged brawler who has been in the ring with Zab "Super" Judah, Vanes "Nightmare" Martirosyan, David "The Destroyer" Lopez and solid undefeated star Mikael Zewski, the 35-year-old Davis is well aware that with a win over Smith on May 2, he will put himself back in position to make a run up the super welterweight ladder.

Smith vs. Davis, a 10-round super welterweight bout, is presented by Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions and is sponsored by Corona and O'Reilly Auto Parts. The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast airs live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.

Tickets, priced at $95, $65, $35 and $25, not including applicable service charges and taxes, are on sale now and available for purchase by visiting The Joint box office, calling 800.745.3000 or online at
