Quartet of Mayweather Promotions Fighters to Flood Saturday’s Undercard

By Mike Sloan Sep 8, 2015
A crop of mostly local talent will be on display Saturday afternoon during the non-televised undercard of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Andre Berto event inside the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The main card will be televised live via Showtime PPV starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Chris Pearson (12-0, 9 KOs) is slated to face Janks Trotter (9-1-1, 9 KOs) in a 10-round middleweight bout. Adding to the undercard fuel will be a 10-rounder at super middleweight featuring Ronald Gavril (13-1, 9 KOs) and Scott Sigmon (25-7-1, 14 KOs).

Junior welterweight contender Ashley Theophane (38-6-1, 11 KOs) will square off against Steve Upsher (25-4-1, 6 KOs) in a 10-round affair. Further action will have rising knockout artist Gervonta Davis (11-0, 10 KOs) locking horns with Guillermo Avila (14-4, 11 KOs) in an eight-round lightweight bout.

The pro debut of Trakwon Pettis will round out the prelims as he faces Devante Seay (0-0-1) in a four-rounder at 140 pounds.

The undercard will be headlined by former IBF junior middleweight champion Ishe Smith (27-7, 12 KOs) going at it with Vanes Martirosyan (35-2-1, 21 KOs), who is coming off a 10-round decision loss to Jermell Charlo in March.
