Bailey (41-7, 36 KOs) made his welterweight debut December 12, 2009 in Chicago, dropping long time contender Germaine Sanders three times en route to an eight round decision.
“Randall is the biggest puncher in boxing today and demolished a world class welterweight,” said Bailey’s promoter, Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “His run of fights in the last few years has been awesome from an offensive standpoint. In the welterweight division, Randall Bailey is the scariest guy on the block.”
With the win, Bailey now finds himself #2 in the IBF rankings, and will await a shot against title holder Jan Zaveck or prepare himself for the other big names in the division.
“He’s got a big name in the United States and he’s got the biggest punch in the world. Our plans are to pursue a title or the biggest money fight possible,” said DiBella.
