Wasserman Boxing have added three more signings to their growing stable.
Harvey Horn, Chloe Watson and Matty Harris have all joined on long-term deals hooking up with last month’s trio of additions Hosea Stewart, Linus Udofia and Razor Ali.
“We’ve set out to sign the best upcoming fighters out there,” said promoter Nisse Sauerland.
Wasserman, who are still to announce a television deal, also partnered up with Internet star KSI in June to stage celebrity and crossover boxing events.
For undefeated Harvey Horn, teaming up with Wasserman and the Sauerland brothers is a chance to restart a promising career which has amounted to eight fights so far. The former Team GB member put pen to paper with Frank Warren in 2017 and has already fought on the same cards as the likes of James DeGale, Josh Warrington and Billy Joe Saunders. The 25-year-old, who did campaign at flyweight, has big ambitions with his new promotional team.
“I’m looking at World titles. The heights I’ve been to as an amateur, I’d be selling myself short if I went for anything less. I’ve chosen to sign with Wasserman Boxing to help see that goal through. Within two to three fights, I see myself ready to challenge the top names in the division.”
Flyweight Chloe Watson turns pro with Wasserman and the two-time national amateur champion and Youth Commonwealth Games gold medallist says this is a ‘dream deal’ for her.
“I live and breathe the sport of boxing, and I’m always hungry for more. My team are first class, with Ricky Hatton coaching me, Mick Carney managing me, and now the Sauerland brothers and Wasserman Boxing promoting me, I couldn’t be more excited. This is day one of a new chapter!”
“She’s the complete package,” said Hatton. “Her style has served her really well in the amateurs and she’ll put a lot of it into practice as a professional. It’s exciting for a coach when he can see what a talent he has to work with, but more importantly knowing there’s still so much more we can add.”
Heavyweight Matty Harris joins Watson in embarking on a pro career with Wasserman and the 6ft 8in highly sought-after prospect is leaving behind his days working in a supermarket to concentrate on becoming a superstar.
“I’m really excited to sign with Wasserman Boxing,” said Harris. “Being part of the Wasserman team is being part of the most exciting venture currently in boxing. The moves they’re making, working with the Sauerland brothers and their amazing in house set up – I couldn’t ask to be in a better place. It’s amazing to think in the last six months, I’ve gone from working in Asda to being in the same stable as Filip Hrgovic and Mairis Briedis. I can’t wait to get going!”
