Davies title eliminator postponed

Davies title eliminator postponed

Dai Davies‘ (12-23-2, 2KO) dream of fighting for the British title will have to wait a little longer after his next opponent withdrew from Saturday’s eliminator. The Welsh champion was scheduled to fight Humberside’s Samir Mouneimne (14-1, 4KO) but their fight at the City Hall in Hull has now been postponed. It has been proposed that the featherweights will now meet each other in February, again in Hull. It remains to be seen whether the 10 round fight will retain it’s status as an eliminator for the Lord Lonsdale belt but it’s expected to, having already been sanctioned by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) once before. The British featherweight title is currently held by Leeds’ Josh Warrington. Mouneimne has already fought Warrington for the Commonwealth title in November 2013 but was stopped in the last round by the future European champion. Davies isn’t the first Welshman of Mouneimne’s career, the switch-hitter once beat Lee Selby on points in a four round contest in 2009. The Barry boy’s career has since gone from strength to strength and he did offer Mouneimne a rematch for the British title in July 2014 but it was declined, leaving Selby free to progress to world level. In 2014, Davies has produced the best form of his career; having beaten Andy Townend in his hometown, stopped Robbie Turley to defend his Welsh title and out-pointed late replacement Ashley Lane to win the International Masters Gold title.
