Welterweight charge Chris Kongo has signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Boxxer.

Bermondsey’s Kongo, trained by Ben Davison, joins a growing BOXXER stable with the ambition of moving towards world title contention.

“It’s great to have teamed up with BOXXER by signing a new promotional deal with them as they’re doing amazing things and to be back on a fantastic TV platform like Sky Sports,” Kongo said.

“I have a new promoter to push me and get me to where I want to be at world level and to challenge for a world title and of course a new trainer in Ben who will ensure that I get back to the top.

“I really can’t wait to get back in the ring now.  The important thing for me this year is to get back to fighting, keep active and climb back up the world rankings.”
