Orangeville boxer Aurey Cox will step into the ring at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga on May 14, to improve his current unblemished professional record. Cox is undefeated after three professional match-ups in the ring.

He will square off with London’s Steve Rainford who enters the ring with a 1-2-0 record. This is the second time the two fights have been paired up. They last met on August 29, at the same venue.

Cox won that fight with a unanimous decision.

On February 27, 2016, Cox won his third pro bout with a TKO over Mexico’s Jesus Olivares.

The United Boxing Promotions event on May 14, will feature two title fights and four preliminary bouts on the card.

Fan favourite Brandon ‘Bad Boy’ Cook will headline the night as the main event when he puts his WBA Intercontinental super welterweight title on the line against Germany’s Davide Doria. Cook, an Ajax native, sports a perfect 16-0-0 record with 10 knockouts. Cook won the title over Gogi Knezevic in June of 2015, and defended it against Rafael Sosa Pintos in November.

Both fights ended in impressive knockouts for Cook.

Doria is the super middleweight champion of Germany, who sports a record of 14-2-1 with 4 knockouts.

The second title fight of the night will feature Hamilton’s Kevin Higson, who will defend his Canadian super welterweight title for the first time after winning it in August of last year over Francesco Cotroni. Higson, 7-0-0 with 1 knockout to his credit, will face Toronto’s Junmar Eamon, who carries a record of 6-3-0 with 2 knockouts.

The fight between the two local combatants is a rematch, with Higson winning their previous tilt in March of last year by unanimous decision.

Other bouts on the six-fight card include Hamilton’s Jesse Wilcox (3-0-0, 2KO) up against Montreal’s Flavio Michel (3-1-0, 2KO) in a welterweight fight.
