The 24-year-old Davies, who won Welsh and British titles as an amateur, represented his home country at the 2015 Commonwealth Games before making his professional debut in 2017. He fought six times in 2018 alone on his way to amassing an 8-0 (3 KO) record, though he’s faced just one opponent with a winning record. He’s yet to really find his weight class as a pro, fighting anywhere from 170 to nearly 190 pounds, but claims that he can compete at both 168 and 175.
Davies is friends with legendary countryman Joe Calzaghe, whom he considers a mentor.
Warrington-Galahad does not yet have any confirmed undercard fights, though BoxRec lists Mark Heffron, Zelfa Barrett, and 19-year-old Tommy Fury as facing TBA, among others.
