“Some people said I should fight a journeyman and ease myself back into things, but I know what I can do" Davis added. 
“York Hall is not far from my house. I might even get the bus down there on the night! London is my hometown and I’m comfortable here. I have my friends and family here, and that means a lot to me.”
