European welterweight champion David Avanesyan has signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions.

Newark-based Russian Avanesyan (28-3-1, 16 KOs) said: “I am very happy to be signing with Frank and very confident that he will deliver me the world title shot I need. I want to become a two-time world champion.

“This year has gone so well for me with two great wins and there is momentum in my career again. It is even better that I have a British promoter because I get so much love from British fans.”

Avanesyan’s manager Neil Marsh added: “We have signed with Frank because it is the best chance David has of securing a world title fight.

“Since I started working with Frank this year with another of my fighters, Zach Parker he has been completely honourable, delivered absolutely everything he promised and got the team smiling again.

“David has had a good year beating Josh Kelly and Liam Taylor after a period of inactivity and we can’t wait to get going with Frank and Queensberry. It was a no-brainer to sign with them. Frank is a Hall of Fame promoter and I’m confident he will get David where he wants to be.”

Frank Warren said: “A lot of promoters wanted to sign David and I’m delighted to have got it over the line. I have a fantastic working relationship with Neil Marsh who believes Queensberry have the team to get David marquee fights and titles. We will deliver.

“David is based in the Midlands now and become an attraction for British fans who know a good fighter when they see one. Fans who come to our shows will love seeing even more of him, and so will viewers on BT Sport.”
