Lucas Bahdi vs. Jesus Amparan tops May 21 Card in Niagara Falls, DAZN

Lee Baxter Promotions announced their next show, taking place at the Niagara Falls Convention Centre on May 21.

Rising lightweight Lucas ‘The Prince’ Bahdi will be headlining the event in his hometown against Jesus Amparan for the IBF North American lightweight title.

Bahdi (13-0, 11 KOs) has made a name for himself in Canada with his ferocious knockout power, stopping 11 of his 13 opponents within the distance. This will be the undefeated contender's first fight since signing with Lee Baxter Promotions.

He’s hoping to make an impact on the lightweight division worldwide and has his eyes set on the top 135-pounders in the division.

As an amateur, Bahdi picked up 3 national titles. He now looks to add to his collection by winning the IBF North American title, but Jesus Amparan stands in his way.

Amparan (20-3-0, 16 KOs), hailing out of boxing hotbed Sonora in Mexico, is unbeaten in his last 4 contests. Amparan plans to bring the fight to Bahdi and ultimately head back to Mexico with the belt and his win streak still intact.

All-action junior welterweight prospect, Joshuah Lupia (10-0, 8 KOs), returns to fight in his hometown for the first time since 2019. The two-time amateur national champion won a comfortable point decision in December against Lanardo Tyner.

‘The Queen of Niagara Falls’ Mikiah Kreps (5-0 2, KOs) will be crossing over the USA-Canada border for her Canadian debut. Last time out, Kreps won an 8-round unanimous decision against Indeya Smith in New York, USA.

The 2019 AIBA Worlds Bronze medallist said after her last fight that she wants to keep active in 2023, her opponent will be announced shortly.
