Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing are delighted to announce that Commonwealth Games gold medallist Scott Fitzgerald has signed promotional terms with the company.
Fitzgerald, from Preston, won Welterweight gold at last year’s Games in Glasgow and will make his professional debut in Liverpool on November 7 on the undercard of the blockbuster Callum Smith vs. Rocky Fielding clash for the vacant British Super Middleweight title at the Echo Arena, live on Sky Sports.
The 23 year old will then box on the undercard of Anthony Crolla’s rematch with Darleys Perez for the WBA World Lightweight title at the Manchester Arena on November 21, also live on Sky Sports.
“I am delighted to join Matchroom Boxing,” said Fitzgerald. “Team GB’s facilities gave me a great place to train and learn and I am ready for the pro game now.
“It was great to have the support at the Commonwealth Games and I am confident I will have big support in Liverpool and Manchester.”
Promoter Eddie Hearn said, “I am delighted to welcome Scott to the team and I am very excited about his future. Scott was an exceptional amateur and part of the outstanding GB Boxing setup, culminating in Commonwealth Games gold last year.
“I believe he has a great style for the pro game and Sky Sports viewers will enjoy watching his journey unfold.”
