Published:Thursday | June 6, 2013 | 1:50 PM

Crowd favourite Tsetsi Davis is now awaiting his opponent for the final of the 2013 Wray & Nephew Middleweight Contender Series.

Davis became the first boxer to qualify for the championship bout after he easily won a unanimous decision over Ramel ‘Sub Zero’ Lewis in the first semi-final last night.

The eight-round bout took place at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium.

All three judges scored in favour of Davis.

Keith Brown scored the bout 77-75, Lindell Allen had it 79-73 and Clifford Brown called it 78-74.

Davis’ opponent will be decided next Wednesday when the top seed Devon Moncrieffe meet Canada-based Richard Riette, the fourth seed.

Sixteen boxers started the series on March 7.

The remainders are vying for the Wray & Nephew Middleweight Contender title and a first prize of a million dollar.

The runner-up in the competition gets $500,000, third place $250,000 and fourth $200,000.
