Ashton Sylve faces Lucas Bahdi live on DAZN PPV from Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL

The bout between Ashton Sylve and Lucas Bahdi has been made official, among other matchups, for the Jake Paul vs Mike Perry undercard. The event airs live on DAZN PPV from Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida on July 20. The contest is scheduled for 10 rounds at lightweight.

Ashton Sylve was originally scheduled to face Floyd Schofield on the Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson undercard on the same date at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The bout fell off after the event was postponed and then rescheduled for November 21.

Unbeaten Sylve (11-0, 9 KOs) makes his second ring appearance for the year. The 20-year-old native of Long Beach, California earned a unanimous decision against Estivan Falcao last time out in February.

“I’ve been training hard for a fight on Saturday, July 20, and I’m thrilled to still be able to get in the ring as originally planned,” Ashton Sylve said. “My opponent may have changed, but the result will be the same: I will get the W and continue my path to greatness.”

“It’s an honor to be fighting alongside my MVP teammates another time on this electrifying fight card. I can’t wait for fans in Tampa to see me take care of business on Saturday, July 20, live on DAZN pay-per-view.”

Making his U.S. debut, Canada’s unbeaten Lucas Bahdi (16-0, 14 KOs) also goes through the ropes for the second time in 2024. The Niagara Falls, Ontario-born 30-year-old is fresh off the win via fourth-round TKO against Jose Luis Rodriguez in June.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to showcase my skills on the undercard of a Jake Paul fight,” Lucas Bahdi said. “This is the type of platform where I belong. July 20 will be my coming out party in the United States and H2O Sylve better be ready for what’s coming.”
