Team GB’s Olympic 2020 captain and bronze medallist Frazer Clarke will make his professional debut on the undercard of Amir Khan v Kell Brook next month.
The February 19 Sky Sports pay-per-view show takes place at the Manchester Arena and the heavyweight is thrilled to be part of the event.
“I am delighted to be making my debut on such a big night for British boxing. Both Amir and Kell are legends so to be on their undercard is amazing. Burton is my home town and a place I love but Manchester holds a special place in my heart, so to start my journey in front of their fans is special. Training is going great and I am 100% focused on putting on a spectacular and entertaining show for everyone in the pros.”
The 30-year-old heavyweight joins Bradley Rea, Viddal Riley, and Adam and Hassan Azim on the support card with opponents to be announced in due course.
Clarke, the 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medallist, joined the BOXXER and Sky Sports stable last month and will be trained by Angel Fernandez.
“It was a proud moment for everyone at BOXXER and Sky Sports when the Team GB captain chose to sign with us and it’s fitting that he will begin his professional journey on the same card as his fellow Olympian and Team GB trailblazer Amir Khan,” said BOXXER founder and CEO Ben Shalom.
