*Colbert *(8-0, 3 KOs) is coming off a stoppage victory over previously
unbeaten Austin Dulay in April and will fight at Barclays Center for the
third time on September 8. The 21-year-old southpaw from Brooklyn is one of
the most decorated amateurs to come out of New York in recent years and he
has gained esteem by showing off his incredible speed and technique so far
in his pro career. In his last fight at Barclays Center, Colbert scored a
unanimous decision over then undefeated Titus Williams last November, in
addition to making his pro debut at the arena in 2015. He will be opposed
by *Segawa *(11-1, 4 KOs), who fights out of Silver Spring, Maryland by way
of Uganda. The 27-year-old most recently stopped previously unbeaten Hector
Lopez in May.
