Scottish super heavyweight amateur champion Nick Campbell has signed a deal to turn professional under the guidance of MHD Management.

Glasgow native Campbell, who also player professional rugby, has opted to venture into the paid code and join a management stable including James Tennyson, Tommy McCarthy and Paul Hyland Jr.

“I’ve been a fan and friend of Nick for a long time and delighted he has chosen me to guide him on this part of his journey,” Said Mark Dunlop of MHD Management. 

“He has been a top level athlete for most of his life and his short but impressive amateur boxing career has been at a very high standard. With a dynamite punch, granite chin, stamina in abundance and a huge fan base he has the attributes to take him to the top.

“Signing with Mark has always been part of my plan, we go back a long way, I’ve seen first hand how he is with the fighters he represents. 

“The highlights of my sporting career so far have been representing Scotland in the under-twenty Rugby World Cup in Japan 2009 and winning the Scottish super heavyweight title.”
