Ismael Barroso has officially a professional boxing champion…
The 40-year-old Venezuelan professional boxer won the WBA interim junior welterweight title in stunning fashion with a first-round TKO victory over Ohara Davies.
In Barroso’s last fight, he suffered a highly controversial TKO loss to Rolly Romero.
If Romero defends his WBA 140-pound title vs. Ryan Garcia next, Barroso (25-4-2, 23 KOs) would be the mandatory challenger for the winner.
Davies (25-3, 18 KOs) had recently signed with Oscar De La Hoya‘s Golden Boy Promotions.
