Cornelius Whitlock Inks Deal With Banner Promotions

PHILADELPHIA, PA —Arthur Pelullo’s Banner Promotions is pleased to announce the signing of Welterweight Cornelius Whitlock to a promotional contract.  Whitlock will make his Banner Promotions debut on March 29th as part of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights undercard at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York.

Whitlock of Landover, Maryland has a record of 1-0-1 with his victory coming by vicious knockout of former amateur standout Shakur Jackson in the third round on January 31st in Staten Island, New York.

The twenty-nine year old Whitlock turned pro on December 19th, 2012 with a draw with Mikkel Lespierre in Lespierre’s hometown of New York.

Whitlock competed in over 30 amateur fights and won Golden Gloves titles and competed in the world championships.

Whitlock has a slick and elusive style with quick hands and footwork and he displayed his explosive power in the win over Jackson.

“I am happy to sign with Banner Promotions”, said Whitlock.

“This is the first time someone has been behind me in my career so this is pretty big.”
Whitlock is trained by Malcolm Lowery and sees big things for his pupil.

“He is a great kid, fights hard and is a gym rat”, said Lowery.

“He has a lot of tools as he is a very slick boxer-puncher with great punching power in both hands.”

“We are very excited about this signing”, said Banner Promotions CEO Arthur Pelullo.

“We got to see Cornelius in person and we came away very impressed after he stopped Jackson and we know he has talent to become a terrific fighter.”
