U.S Amateur Star Darius Fulghum Joins S-Jam Boxing

S-Jam Boxing have added number one ranked U.S amateur heavyweight Darius Fulghum to their ranks.

Fulghum has put pen to paper with the British management team joining the likes of world heavyweight title contender Joe Joyce, novices Solomon Dacres and Johnny Fisher, and welterweight rising star Florian Marku.

Fulghum, who will make his debut in the autumn, spoke to Sky Sports about his views on not participating at this summer’s Tokyo Olympics having ditched the amateur vest.

“I’m just happy for my team-mates and I’m excited for them. I wish I could be there as well,” said the 24-year-old who has a nursing degree.

The Houston native will campaign at light-heavyweight when he begins his career later this year and says he is “built to win”.

“Whatever I need to do in any moment, I can do,” he said.

“I don’t have one style. I’m a jack of all trades – I can box, I can brawl, I can be a puncher. Whatever I need to do to win.”

There is no news yet as to where the 2018 Golden Gloves champion will make his debut and on what network. In the U.K S-Jam currently has fighters plying their trade on Sky Sports and BT Sport.

Fulghum said he is S-Jam Boxing’s next superstar and believes he is destined for big things.

“I want to create a legacy that lasts for years and years to come,” he said via social media.

“I want to be one of the greats, a hall of famer. I want to change the sport of boxing; I feel like I can do that. I really believe I’m destined for greatness.”
