Following an exemplary impressive career which culminated in winning a medal for Great Britain at the 2020 Olympic Games, Team GB captain Frazer Clarke has signed an exclusive long-term promotional agreement to enter the professional ranks with BOXXER and Sky Sports Boxing.
The Staffordshire standout will make his professional debut next year and is set on pursuing further honours to add to an extensive list which includes a bronze medal in the super-heavyweight category at the Tokyo 2020 Games, a gold medal in the 2018 Commonwealth Games and gold medals in the 2014 and 2018 European Union Championships.
Anthony Joshua – Clarke’s former sparring partner at Team GB – will once again play a key role in Clarke’s boxing career, this time as a mentor. Clarke signed with Joshua’s management label 258 MGT shortly after announcing his intention to turn professional and will benefit from his former sparring partner’s experience as he begins his journey in the professional game.
“Signing with BOXXER is massive for me. Since I got back from the Olympics there’s been a lot of interest in where I was going to go. After weighing up all the options and speaking to the guys at BOXXER and Sky Sports, I came to this decision and here we are, ready to take the first step,” said Clarke.
“There’s a long road ahead of us but I’m more than willing to learn. It’s going to be a difficult task to get to where I want to be, to become a world champion. But I want people to follow the journey because I’m sure it’s going to be exciting.
“Anthony Joshua is on the end of the phone and he’s one of those people that’s been there and done it. I’d be silly to have access to him and not use it. Definitely that will be a phone call I’m looking forward to!”
