Ohara Davies: My Aim is To Destroy, Make a Statement!

While Ohara Davies fully intends to cut out the shenanigans that have got him into bother in the past, he knows that boxing is show business and there are one or two character traits that could well resurface come fight week as his return to the ring at the 02 Arena on April 14 closes in.

The super lightweight is a natural showman, but he now acknowledges that he doesn’t always have to be the one playing the baddie, as he explains in his latest Fighter Diary…

By Ohara Davies

I AM ALWAYS going to be a flamboyant person and I always have been. It is the way I am, but I am going to be more natural about it now.

I am not going to go into a press conference with the sole aim of being as flamboyant as I can be or causing as much of a stir as I can.

In the past that was the aim. Now, any comments that come from me will reflect how I feel and that will be the difference between the new OD and the old one.


The new me will just act out how I feel, which at times will be about being a bit humble and at others about being flamboyant.

I am just going to be me. I am not going to be totally humble because I am not a totally humble fighter. I have got that bit of flamboyance in me that will come out at certain times.

Anything that I have got to say will be saved for my opponents and certainly not the fans.

I remember when I was up in Liverpool when I fought Derry Mathews I abused all the fans and that was so wrong of me. I look back on that now and think it was so pointless and I shouldn’t have done it.
It was another occasion when my management should have been there for me to give advice and tell me it was wrong, but that was not what they did.

I should have been told to stop but they let me carry on and on and on for months and months and months, before throwing me under the bus when they felt they didn’t need me anymore.

I am thankful to Frank now for taking me from under the bus and putting me back in the spotlight on a massive show at the 02 Arena on April 14.

So now I will be back in the spotlight for the right reasons, rather than the wrong ones.
It won’t just be a bedding in fight for me at the 02, even though it will be the first with my new trainer. I want a good opponent, I actually know who I am fighting, and if it is confirmed it is one who has never been stopped and has been in with some good people.

My aim is to destroy him and make a statement – and do it within the first three rounds.

I want to prove that the real OD is here and here to stay.

Who was the ghost writer here? There's no way OD knows what a paragraph is.

Sounds like he's blaming his own team and saying sorry on their behalf. I hope a fight with Jack Catteral gets made, be a good scrap!

����Will Ohara fight for the WBO European or intercontinental belt? Or will Frank surprise us and bring out the IBF European belt?

Josh Taylor has already beaten the sh*t out of this poor man's Dereck Chisora. He won't go anywhere.

[QUOTE=GlassJoey;18566207]I’d love to know what Hearn advised him prior to his recent controversial comments because OD sounds like he is partly blaming his management for it. It might just be Brick Top telling him to slag off Matchroom though.[/QUOTE] The…
