Buatsi Looks to Continue his Climb up the Light-Heavyweight Ranks

Joshua Buatsi (10-0-0, 8KO), the 2016 Olympic Bronze medalist, looks to continue his rise in the Light Heavyweight division when he takes the ring Saturday night in Madison Square Garden on the Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz undercard.

Buatsi looked sharp in his last appearance in the ring, winning the vacant British Light Heavyweight title over Liam Conroy by 3rd round stoppage.

His opponent Saturday night is former Super Middleweight contender Marco Antonio Periban (25-4-1, 16KO), who will be fighting for the first time since 2017 when he dropped a 12 round decision to Avni Yilidirim.

Buatsi’s promoter Eddie Hearn used the word “sensational” to describe the Ghanaian born British fighter’s 10-fight career so far and says that the 34 year old Periban is a great test at this point
