It was announced yesterday that Irish welterweight Ayo Daly (1-1) will be in action at Cage Warriors Academy Northwest in Liverpool on December 1 against undefeated Welsh fighter Bobby 'The Body Snatcher' Pallett (3-0).
Daly, who is currently based in Malta, was last in action this past June at Centurian Fight Championship 3. The Team Ryano fighter took control of that fight against the debuting Krasimir Tolupov and while he reigned down elbows the referee made a very questionable call in saying they were illegal strikes and then Tolupov then laid on the canvas for a number of minutes. The fight was then ruled a no-contest.
It was Daly's first fight in over three years. Prior to that Daly was one of the top amateurs to come up through the ranks in Ireland and had wins over the likes of Kiefer Crosbie, Keith McCabe, and Paul Lawrence.
He won his pro debut in early 2015 and then in just his second fight he took on Martin van Staden, a fighter with over twenty professional fights at the time and someone who had experience against some of the top level fighters. The fight against van Staden did not go his way and afterwards Daly went on a sobatical from the sport.
His opponent on December 1, Bobby Pallett, is a talented fighter from Wales who has won all three of his fights since turning professional in 2017. He holds a win over Cork's Dillon Manning.
