Robbie Davies Jr. To Rematch Michal Syrowatka In Liverpool

By Elliot Foster

Robbie Davies Jr. will get the chance to avenge his only career defeat to date in a couple of months’ time after a rematch was agreed.

The former WBA Continental super-lightweight champion succumbed his crown to Michal Syrowatka back in July 2017 at the SSE Arena in Wembley, London when he was knocked out in the final of 12 scheduled rounds on the undercard of Chris Eubank Jr’s IBO super-middleweight title defence against Arthur Abraham.

Davies, going into the fight, had to deal with the fact that his father was unwell and the legendary Robbie Davies Sr. passed away soon after, leaving the 28-year-old devastated.


Upon returning to training under Dave Tonks, though, Davies had his sights set on one fight only and that was the rematch with Poland’s Syrowatka, which manager Neil Marsh worked so hard to secure for March 31 at the BT Convention Centre in Liverpool with the aforementioned fringe WBA belt set to be on the line.

“It’s taken a while to happen but I’m delighted everything is sorted now –– thanks to my manager Neil Marsh for that –– and I can’t wait to get back in the ring,” Davies Jr. said in a media release to confirm the news.

“He was a decent kid but I wasn’t at my best in the first fight and I won’t be making the same mistakes again. I know I’m better than him in every department; speed, power, skill, everything.

“And people will see this on 31 March. I aim to take back the belt in style and then move on up through the rankings to bigger things later in the year.”

Brian Phillips and Lee Boyce will feature on the card, which could –– according to Davies’ manager Marsh –– end up on TV, along with Warrington pair Courtney Chadwick and Danny Craven, Southport’s Jake Barton and Ellesmere Port’s Mason Cartwright.

Marsh also stated that a “world-class” support contest is still to be finalised for the card and further details will be revealed in due course.
