Gervonta Davis vs Jose Pedraza Weigh-in Complete!

Pedraza 129.5 lbs     Davis 129 lbs

Gevonta Davis out of Baltimore, MD will enter this fight with a perfect record of 16-0, 15 by knockout. He’s a Mayweather Promotions fighter with plenty of punching power. That power is the reason he only has 43 rounds since turning pro back in 2013. Davis has a current knockout ratio stands at 94%. Davis has been the distance only once in his career and that was just six rounds back in 2014. Mayweather Promotions and Davis feels he is up to this challenge to become the possible next IBF Jr Lightweight champion of the world. 

The 27-year-old Pedraza also has a perfect record of 22-0 with 12 KO's. Pedraza is looking to fight from the outside so he’ll be happy he’s fighting a shorter opponent in Davis. Pedraza won the vacant IBF title in June of 2015 when he beat Andrey Klimov by unanimous decision. He then defended the crown twice by beating Edner Cherry and Stephen Smith by split and unanimous decisions. Even with those wins, Davis will be the most slickest and power punching opponent yet for Pedraza.

This bout will be the co-feature of the Badou Jack vs James DeGale WBC/IBF Super Middleweight Championship showdown live on Showtime starting at 9:30pm ET.

Baltimore, MD (January 11, 2017) – When Jessie “The Beast” Nicklow enters the ring Friday evening against Chauncey Fields, he’ll do so in need of an impressive victory.

The Baltimore native has a solid 25-8-3 record with 8 knockouts and built a reputation for remarkable physical toughness. The 29-year-old however has come up short in some of his recent bouts against world class fighters including 2012 Olympic gold medalist Ryota Murata, Ronald Gavril and Sergiy Derevyanchenko. Nicklow’s undefeated when he fights in Maryland but is faced with a hungry opponent that has everything to gain.

Enter Chauncey “Grimm” Fields. Living and fighting out of Lynchburg, VA, Fields is 4-0 with 2 knockouts. On paper, some have been critical due to the experience gap however Fields’ first four fights were six rounders and he sees the opportunity as a way to better his career sooner than later.

“This is an interesting fight because Jessie needs this win to remain a contender and Chauncey wants to make a name for himself at an early stage of his career,” said Jake Smith. “The winner will definitely move onto bigger things and both guys understand the importance of this fight.”

The eight round super middleweight contest headlines a Jake Smith’s Baltimore Pro Boxing pro-am card dubbed as “Scary Night at the Fights” live from Michael’s Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD. Tickets from $50 are on sale by logging onto or calling 410-375-9175.

In the co-main event, Baltimore’s “Dangerous” Donald Wallace looks to go 2-0 when he faces fellow unbeaten Tahir Thomas (4-0-1, 3 KO’s), of Salisbury, MD over six rounds. Wallace turned pro last year with a first round knockout while Thomas most recently drew with 10-0 Antowyan Aikens.
