The fight would then take place as an undercard to the fight between James Degale and Badou Jack for the super middleweight world title unification.
The IBF also granted Pedraza a waiver to fight Davis because he had a mandatory fight against British boxer Liam Walsh on the horizon.

He then knocked out Pedraza in the seventh round to win the IBF super featherweight title.
Following the fight, he stated that in order to remain composed, he had studied the early career of his mentor, Floyd Mayweather Jr. He also stated that he had a lot of experience, but he learned how to maintain his cool.’
