Larry Fryers [11(4)-3(1)] will be out to upset a Top Rank prospect in Las Vegas this weekend.
The Monaghan native confirmed he was set to fight for the first time in 2021 on the undercard of Shakur Stevenson’s clash with Nabima’s Jeremiah Nakathila at the Virgin Hotel, Las Vegas on June 12.
He has since revealed he will take on another prospect from the Top Rank stable and is eyeing an upset win.
The 30-year-old trades leather with Xander Zayas [8(6)-0] hoping to put back to back step up defeats behind him on the TV card.
The American based Puerto Rico native has eight wins to his names, six of which have come inside the distance, despite only being 18-years of age.
Fryers goes into the fight full of confidence telling Irish-boxing.com: “Look I believe they’ve made a mistake. I’m all wrong for him and come Saturday I’m going to cause the upset and get that win.”
