Colbert Vs Segawa Added To Brooklyn Card


Brooklyn’s Chris Colbert returns to the ring in his hometown to take on once-beaten Sulaiman Segawa in an eight-round featherweight match as he looks to continue his rise up the ladder in the featherweight division. The loaded card is presented by Premier Boxing Champions on Saturday, September 8 from Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, New York

 

The undercard attraction is part of a show that is headlined by welterweight stars Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter battling for the WBC title in the main .

Colbert (8-0, 3 KOs) is coming off a stoppage victory over previously unbeaten Austin Dulay in April and will fight at Barclays Center for the third time on September 8.

In his last fight at Barclays Center, Colbert scored a unanimous decision over then undefeated Titus Williams last November, in addition to making his pro debut at the arena in 2015. He will be opposed by Segawa (11-1, 4 KOs), who fights out of Silver Spring, Maryland by way of Uganda. The 27-year-old most recently stopped previously unbeaten Hector Lopez in May.
