WBO International Junior Heavyweight Champion David Light
Defends Against Brandon Glanton Dec. 2
In a battle of undefeated World Boxing Organization (WBO)
top-ten ranked junior heavyweights (200 lbs.), Brandon
Glanton and David Light will battle for Light’s WBO
International Junior Heavyweight Title. The show will take
place at the White Sands Events Center in Plant City on
Friday, December 2 and be streamed live on ProBoxTV.com and
the ProBox TV app.
David “The Great White” Light (19-0, 12 KOs) from Takapuna,
New Zealand won the WBO International title on May 5, 2022,
with a first-round knockout. He is ranked No. 6 by the WBO.
His most recent bout on October 8 was a second-round
“Training is going great - it’s hardest I have ever trained
in my life and I am leaving no stone unturned,” said Light.
“We have watched Glanton and he's a very good strong
fighter, the sort of guy people avoid but we are up for the
challenge and totally believe we have got what it takes to
win. We coming to beat him at his own game. We are coming to
put him to sleep. After December 2nd everyone is going to
know who I am as losing is not an option.”
Brandon “Bulletproof” Glanton (17-0, 14 KOs) from Atlanta,
Georgia is ranked No. 10 by the WBO and is coming off three
consecutive KO wins, the last a second-round blowout of
Mario Aguilar on September 9, in Plant City on ProBox TV.
Glanton is from Atlanta, GA where he does his maintenance
training. He does his heavy training in Fort Mitchell,
Alabama, where he is now.
This guy is my next victim,” said Glanton. “I have been
training pretty hard for him. I take everybody seriously,
but I am going to melt this guy. He is a one-two fighter and
has decent hand speed – not much foot movement or power but
he’s a veteran and knows his way around the ring. He will
look to make it a rangy fight, but I am just the opposite.
For as long as it lasts it will be a great fight for the
fans. I won’t pick what round it will end - it will come
down to however way I am feeling. I am going to knock him
out and the tougher he is the better. I am going to hurt
this guy. I will lay him out cold.
“ProBox has been nothing short of amazing and Garry Jonas
saw what I bring to the table and is helping push my career
to the next level, And I’m happy I have some great names
commenting behind me.”
The remainder of the card is stacked with undefeated
fighters, including Orlando’s Darrelle Valsaint (6-0, 5
KOs); Julio Solis (8-0, 6 KOs) from Caguas Puerto Rico;
Jaycob Gomez (6-0-1, 5 KOs) from Caguas, Puerto Rico; and
Jusiyah Shirley (7-0, 6 KOs) from Orlando.
