Keyshawn Davis: I’ll be back two more times this year

LAS VEGAS — Fast-rising prospect Keyshawn Davis told ProBox TV and other reporters recently that he intends on finishing the year with two more fights.

The lightweight boxer is widely regarded as one of boxing's most promising young stars as, aged 24, he has breezed past all his opponents to date as he looks set to become a star of the future.

His fast hands, accurate flurries, and footwork that belies his years as he’s built a pro record of nine wins (six knockouts), while remaining unbeaten.

Davis has fought twice already in 2023 having beaten Anthony Yigit by knockout in April, on the undercard of his friend, occasional sparring partner, and Top Rank stablemate Shakur Stevenson, who defeated Shuichiro Yoshino by sixth-round technical knockout that night.

Davis beat Francesco Patera by decision three months later and will have to maintain a fight every quarter this year if he is to live up to his claim and compete two more times before 2024.

“I ain't going to tell you a date,” he told us, “But just know I'll be back twice this year.”

Top Rank's upcoming schedule consists of four confirmed shows running through to September. 

The Las Vegas-based promoter's next event is an August 12 card that will be held at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona, and features a main event between Emanuel Navarrete and Oscar Valdez.

It is unclear if Davis will be added to one of Top Rank’s next four events, or if he’ll feature prominently in one, or two, cards yet to be announced.
