Ismael Barroso Stuns Ohara Davies to Claim WBA Interim Junior Welterweight Title

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.

Ismael Barroso Barroso floored Davies twice in Round 1, and the 31-year-old London-based boxer was in no shape to continue when the referee stopped it.

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.
