July 8th at Braehead Arena in Glasgow promises to be one of Scotland’s biggest nights of championship boxing this year.

Edinburgh’s undefeated prospect Jason Easton boxes highly ranked Belgian contender Steve Jamoye for the vacant IBO Intercontinental super lightweight title in the chief support bout on July 8th while a host of local talent will also be in action on the big Braehead bill.
Unbeaten Coatbridge welterweight Gary Murray will box for the second time this year on July 8th in a four-round contest against an opponent to be named shortly. Also featuring is former amateur star Aston Brown who will make only his second professional start in a four-round middleweight contest, having switched his training base to Manchester and is now under the tutelage of former champion Anthony Farnell.
Barrhead’s undefeated super bantamweight prospect Gary Rae will box for the fourth time this calendar year on July 8th at Braehead Arena when the man known as ‘Razor’ faces off against Spanish hard-man Luis Espinosa in a four-round contest. Glasgow’s Ally Black will also feature on the big Braehead bill in a four-round welterweight contest.
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.
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.
