Edinburgh’s Jason Easton is undefeated in nine professional contests and last time out he stopped the dangerous Zoltan Szabo in two spectacular rounds at Edinburgh’s Meadowbank Arena in March. That impressive win followed Easton’s first title success in October of last year when he stopped Wales’ Rhys Saunders for the vacant Celtic super lightweight title.
Belgium’s Jamoye, 22 – 3 – 1, is the younger brother of former double World title challenger and European champion Stephane Jamoye. The younger Jamoye is the current Belgium and BeNeLux super lightweight champion and is in the form of his life having recently beaten fellow Belgian Jean Pierre Bauwens. The former WBC World Youth super lightweight champion Jamoye also holds an impressive win over another compatriot Farid Hakimi, a recent visitor to these shores when he lost a contentious majority decision for the WBA International title to Liverpool’s Tom Farrell.
This vacant IBO Intercontinental super lightweight title fight will be one of the main support contests on Saturday July 8th. The main event on July 8th at Braehead Arena, Josh Taylor vs Ohara Davies, is already one of the most talked about domestic battles of 2017, with both men setting social media ablaze with their mutual dislike for one another prior to the official announcement of this seminal clash.
Both Taylor and Davies are undefeated, both are big punchers and both are currently moving into the primes of their respective careers, making their July 8th domestic grudge match one of the most intriguing fights in Britain and Ireland this year.
Scotland’s undefeated Commonwealth super lightweight champion Josh Taylor is used to winning in Glasgow, as this was the scene of his 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medal triumph. On July 8th Taylor takes centre stage again when he faces his toughest opponent to date in the form of undefeated WBC Silver super lightweight champion Ohara Davies.
Ohara Davies won the English lightweight title in March 2016 before moving up to super lightweight and capturing the WBC Silver title in November of last year. Last time out the powerful Davies stopped former WBO World lightweight title challenger Derry Matthews in the third round.
The scene is set for an action-packed night of championship boxing on July 8th at Braehead Arena in Glasgow. The build-up to this exciting night could well rival the action in the ring on July 8th at Braehead Arena, so don’t blink folks.
