Bascome to face Jamaica’s Moncriffe

Nikki Bascome will continue his busy start to the new year when he faces Jamaican Devon Moncriffe at the Fairmont Southampton on March 28.

It will be Bascome's second fight in less than three months, having defeated Ryan Oliver, of England, by a unanimous decision at the same venue two weeks ago.

For 43-year-old Moncriffe, it will be his first bout since being knocked out by Mexican Ricardo Salas at the Chinese Benevolent Association Auditorium in Kingston, Jamaica, in August 2018.

Moncriffe has a professional record of 14 wins and one draw from 24 professional outings, and has fought outside of Jamaica four times, twice in the United States and twice in Canada.

The 5ft 6in fighter won the Wray & Nephew Contender middleweight title in Jamaica in 2013.

Bascome, 29, will be looking to improve on his record of nine victories from ten contests.

Nikki Bascome will take on Devon Moncriffe next month
