Cruiserweight prospect Viddal Riley (4-0, 2 KO’s) has signed an exclusive long-term promotional agreement with BOXXER and Sky Sports Boxing.
A former Team GB member who represented Britain at the 2014 Nanjing Youth Olympics and still undefeated as a professional, Riley brings an enormous following thanks to his second career as a digital content producer and social media influencer.
Riley started boxing at the age of 6 and went 41-8 with 19 wins by KO during an amateur career which featured a European Junior Silver Medal and a win over Daniel Dubois as well as the 2014 Youth Olympics appearance.
Riley is also known as the trainer of YouTube star KSI, having trained him for his two bouts with Logan Paul and domestic rival Joe Weller.
“Been a long time people, but I’m back! Pleased to announce that I’ve inked a deal with BOXXER to fight exclusively on Sky Sports. Can’t wait to lace up my gloves – stay tuned for updates!” said Riley.
“We’re extremely excited to announce the signing of one of the most highly-rated prospects in British boxing and we are looking forward to being part of his incredible journey.” said Ben Shalom, founder and CEO, BOXXER.
“The sky’s the limit for Viddal – he has a huge following, an infectious personality and, most importantly, the ability to go to the top of the sport.”
Adam Smith, Head of Boxing Development at Sky Sports said “Viddal Riley is another hugely exciting addition to the growing BOXXER stable – and we cannot wait to see him back in action, live on Sky Sports.
