Belfast’s undefeated middleweight contender Caoimhin Agyarko has signed a long-term promotional pact with Matchroom Boxing.

“I’m absolutely over the moon to have signed with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing,” said Agyarko (9-0, 6 KOs).

“I’m really excited about this next chapter in my career. I believe my manager Paul Ready has got me the perfect opportunity to showcase my skills and I have full belief that Matchroom will make me the first black Irish world champion.”

New promoter Eddie Hearn added: “I’m delighted to welcome the exciting and dangerous middleweight talent Caoimhin Agyarko to the Matchroom ranks.

“Caoimhin has a real viciousness to his fighting style and is sure to be a fan favourite for DAZN viewers all around the world. ‘Black Thunder’ has a remarkable story and I look forward to guiding him towards some huge nights in Belfast.”
