GEORGE DAVEY is still part of Frank Warren’s stable as he prepares for his first fight away from one of the Hall of Fame boxing promoter’s shows.

The undefeated York prospect is next out over six rounds at the Oldham Leisure Centre on Saturday night, having had his first six professional fights on Warren bills.

Davey has explained that his appearance on Frank Duffin’s promotion will allow him to keep active while also boxing on Warren’s showpiece events, often held at major arenas and broadcast on BT Sport.

“Frank has put me on some absolutely quality shows but, at this stage, we just wanted to be out more regularly,” reasoned the welterweight, who has five wins and a draw from half a dozen pro bouts.

“You get ring rust if you’re not fighting very often. Henry (Wharton, trainer and manager) got in touch with (matchmaker) Kevin Maree and Kevin was delighted to have us on one of his bills.

“I’m fighting on his bill and then hopefully I’ll get another fight with Frank after, which keeps the ball rolling.

“Being on both (promoter’s) shows will definitely keep me busy.”

Davey’s next contest will be his first since his six-round draw with Serge Ambomo in April at the Telford International Centre.

That is the sole blemish on his record in the paid ranks and a result he disputes.

“Serge was a quality opponent,” reflected the 24-year-old. “He’s a former Olympian, he’s number one in Cameroon, so he was dangerous opponent.

“But I know when I’ve lost and I know when I’ve won and in my eyes and in the eyes of many people, I won.

“I boxed really well and even went to southpaw, which isn’t something that I usually do. I only tend to go southpaw in fights when I’m extremely confident, which I was.

“I was hitting him with plenty of shots. He was walking through a few because he’s a very strong lad.

“I boxed really well and when they said it was a draw, we were shocked. But it is what it is, I can’t change the result and now we move on.”

While adamant that he came away with an unfair decision, Davey admitted that there were lessons to be learnt for from the night.

He said: “Watching it back, even though I thought I was doing really well, I probably could have done some more damage to him, in terms of sitting in there with him and if I’d have put some power shots together, I potentially could have stopped him.

“But because I was happy doing what I was doing, I didn’t do that, but in hindsight, I could have done that.”

How a prospect recovers from a first miss-step in their career can often be pivotal. Davey insists that his mindset, even without a 100 per cent record, remains the same.

He stressed: “There’s no loss of confidence at all, maybe just a bit of disappointment. You can easily lose confidence if you let that (result) affect you.

“At the end of the day, it’s not a loss, it’s a draw. Confidence is still there, I’m sparring well and training is going well, so everything is all good.”
