Ohara Davies: I Want Maurice Hooker, Flanagan Beat Him

OHARA DAVIES will now face WBC international super-lightweight champion Paul Kamanga at o2 Arena on June 23.

The controversial Londoner now faces the African after Josh Leather pulled out of their ?ght claiming he was taking break from boxing.

Davies said: “I feel quiet gutted that Leather pulled out and said he was taking a break from boxing. “He did interviews saying what he was going to do and I wanted to see if he could ?ght as well as he talks.

“He said a few things I wasn’t too happy with, but these things happen and hopefully he will decided he wants ?ght again eventually and we can meet.”

Congolese Kamanga has won 21 of his 22 ?ghts and con?dent of causing an upset, but Davies doesn’t intend on ?nding out too much about him before their BT Sport televised clash.

He added: “As always Frank Warren  delivers and has come with Paul Kamanga. I have only just heard the name and I am going to have a look. “Kamanga’s record is good and he looks a real test for a ?ghter like myself who is all about winning world titles. “I will watch a bit of him, but I don’t think I need to because I am a smart ?ghter in that ring.

“With the new team that I have, I can adjust to any circumstances. I am in such good shape that I don’t see anyone being a threat to me, right now.”

Davies could face the winner of the Belfast clash between Jack Catterall and Tyrone McKenna, but wants the bigger prize, WBO champion Maurice Hooker who shocked Terry Flanagan last weekend.

Ohara, 26, added: “Hooker is someone I want because he is a world champion. I think he would be easier to beat than Terry Flanagan. “I was ringside and Terry should have got the decision. I thought he won and I know what I saw. “Styles make ?ghts and Terry would be tougher to beat than Hooker who will be easier.”

Ohaha davies is a clown. Flanagan is a joke, the scorecard for him was criminal. Hooker is average and Davies sees a weak link. Sadly for him Maurice has balls bigger than his skills and is gonna go in the…

[QUOTE=Mammoth;18862214]I still don't think Hooker is very good[/QUOTE] Agree. The fact that he was brought in as a cupcake for Flanagan to get another paper alphabet belt and won the fight says a lot more about Flanagan that anything else

I still don't think Hooker is very good

[QUOTE=yammy25;18861151]He's limited and doesn't deserve a world title shot. Taylor absolutely exposed him and had him scurrying round like a ferret on fire. Why should a guy who legitimately just gave up in that fight and who isn't even currently…
