Junior welterweight Robbie Davies Jr has signed a three-fight deal with Matchroom Boxing, and will return to action for the promotional company in October, when he faces Glenn Foot.

“I’m very happy to be part of the Matchroom team,” said Davies Jr in a press release. “There isn’t any other promotion in the world, not just in Britain, like them. I know working with them can get me the big fights and the bright lights I’ve been craving.

“I respect Glenn, he’s a no-nonsense type fighter and a very hard, durable man. I know he’s going to bring his A-game but this is what I need, fights to push myself to showcase to everyone that I’m a cut above the rest. I work hard all year round and now it’s time I reap the rewards. And The New.”

Davies (16-1, 12 KO) lost a 12th round TKO to Michal Syrowatka last July, but avenged that defeat in the exact same manner on March 31 of this year, in his last outing. He’s 28 years old and probably more a domestic contender than a potential world contender, but signing with Matchroom gives him the chance to go further if things do work out.
