Davis, 9-2 (8KO’s) is coming off a devastating first round knockout of Nigerian Innocent Otukwu three months ago in front of a stunned crowd at Cicero Stadium. The knockout was the eighth of Davis’ career, all of which have come in the first two rounds. Standing 6’4” and weighing 235 pounds, Davis brings size and tremendous punching power to the ring.
Warren, Ohio native Page, 13-12-1 (5KO’s) has fought numerous highly regarded contenders and prospects. On October 20, 2006, Page won a unanimous decision over former world champion Lou Del Valle in Youngstown, Ohio. He has also been in distance battles with Dominick Guinn, Jonathan Banks, Mike Mollo and Mike Marrone.
Said Pesoli, “This is a terrific match up and a real test for Carl. Page is a tough veteran who has been in some close, hard fought fights with some of the best prospects in boxing.
Carl’s made a big name for himself in Chicago with his quick knockouts that our fans love, but no one has done that to Page yet.”
