Webster just recently completed a world class training camp with undefeated Matt Korobov and former world title challenger Andre Dirrell and is very confident heading into the tough test..

“I been in Miami with Korobov and Dirrell and I am very prepared. I am ready to fight. I have a clear mind and just am focused on boxing,” said Webster.

Despite being undefeated, Webster has been searching for the right team behind him and at the beginning of the year he linked up with D and D Management and just in the past month signed with GH3 Promotions.

“Signing with GH3 is the step I needed to take. It’s a new relationship and I am excited.”
Webster is looking forward to fighting in front of his hometown fans as he lives close to the city and spends a lot of time in Philadelphia.

“Its always a good experience to fight at home. I love fighting in front of the Philly crowd and in front of my peers. I have fun doing that. I plan on a really good fight. I will pack the house and move onto a bigger stage.”
“Once again I will prove that when people see Derrick Webster, they will see the best southpaw in boxing.”, finished Webster
