MEXICAN veteran Miguel Vazquez will come to London on June 28 to take on Ohara Davies at York Hall.

The former world champion fully expects to give Davies a real fight. “I think Ohara is a strong fighter and a challenge for me. I think it’ll be a difficult fight but I’m [confident] I’ll win it,” Vazquez told Boxing News. “I want to get back on track to challenge for a world title. This is an opportunity to get a win abroad and having a win over him would help me achieve this goal. I would like to go on and have wins in other countries.”

Vazquez is coming off a solid victory over Ghislain Maduma in Montreal in March. “It’s always a big challenge to go and fight overseas. The fact that I won this fight abroad gave me a lot of motivation to take the challenge and take this fight against Ohara,” Vazquez said.
