Purdie and Southerland make World Tour dunking debut

MEXICO DF (FIBA 3x3 World Tour) - US pro dunkers Michael Purdie and Jordan Southerland will compete at the FIBA 3x3 World Tour for the first time, at the Mexico DF Masters Dunk Contest on 16-17 July.

The FIBA 3x3 World Tour has made a reputation of hosting some of the hottest dunk contests in the world.

The Mexico DF Masters just got hotter than a jalapeño with the announcement that Dunk Elite athletes Purdie and Southerland will be in town for the contest.

The 1.96m Purdie has become an Internet phenomenon with his trash-talking abilities and 1.14m vertical.

The 1.91m Southerland has established himself at just 22 as one of the best one-legged jumpers on the circuit.

A third dunker - whose name to be announced - will complete the roster of dunkers in Mexico.

The Mexico DF Masters Dunk Contest will be livestreamed on youtube.com/FIBA3x3 and facebook.com/FIBA3x3.
