2021 continues to be a year to remember for Jason Cunningham.
The 32-year-old from Doncaster put in a dominant, one-sided performance back in May when he upset the odds to beat Gamal Yafai and become European bantamweight champion. And just last month ‘The Iceman’ took Brad Foster’s British and Commonwealth titles when he edged out ‘The Blade’ on points.
A pro for ten years now Cunningham can now look forward to more big fights having signed a multi-fight deal with Queensbury Promotions.
“I am excited to be working with Frank Warren, after seeing first-hand how much he supports and backs his fighters,” said Cunningham.
“After spending years in the away corner on small hall shows I will finally be given the chance to be the home fighter. Thanks to all the team at Queensberry, I can look forward to working towards a World title.
“I have had a brilliant career; I am doing all right. I want to go for it and get the biggest fights I possibly can.”
Cunningham, who is ranked at number nine with the WBO, is now targeting the world scene. As things stand the champions at 122lbs are Stephen Fulton (WBO), Murodjon Akhmadaliev (IBF and WBA) and Brandon Figueroa (WBC). The Brit is well aware of how talented they all are.
“The World champions are all good fighters and that is a step up, but after my wins against Gamal and Brad over the last few months there is only one place to go.”
