According to the Latin phrase “omne trium perfectum,” when things arrive in threes, it suggests perfection and completeness. For the Ball Construction-sponsored boxer, “Dangerous” Denton Daley, this is an apt description of what turned out to be a very good weekend.
It all began with Daley knocking out Montreal’s Sylvera “Sly” Louis in the 9th round before a sold-out crowd at Toronto’s Masonic Temple; in so doing, he won not just the Canadian Cruiserweight Championship but also the Commonwealth (British Empire) Cruiserweight championship title. With his opponent having a decided advantage in terms of height and reach, Daley’s strategy was to get inside his wheelhouse and pummel the body. This eventually paid off with a left hook resulting in a standing count to eight, which Daley then followed with four massive rights leading to the knockout.
By winning the vacant Commonwealth title, Daly brought the designation back to North America—solidifying his status as one of the best Cruiserweight fighters on the planet.
The September 9 tilt was organized by Global Legacy Boxing (GLB), a new boxing promotional company whose partners include former Canadian gold medalist and undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Louis. The intention is to support and promote Canadian boxing, and in so doing, also attract international boxers to come to Canada and compete.
To complete the weekend triumvirate, Daley then tied the knot the very next day with his fiancé Mona Sandhu. Perfect.
