Coyle, Hamilton Ink Promotionals With Matchroom

Matchroom Sport are delighted to announce that Tommy Coyle and Darren Hamilton have both signed promotional deals with Eddie Hearn.

Promising Lightweight talent Coyle became a notable player in the thriving domestic scene with his impressive display in his Commonwealth title clash against Derry Mathews in Hull in July and followed that in November with a seventh round stoppage win over John Simpson to claim the IBF International Lightweight title, a title Coyle will defend on February 22 in his hometown at the Hull Arena live on Sky Sports.

Hamilton has enjoyed a brilliant 18 months in the ring after he shocked British Light Welterweight king Ashley Theophane in May 2012 in Liverpool to take the title from the highly-rated Londoner. The 35 year old made his first successful defence in February with a wide points victory over Steve Williams at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, and topped that with an excellent performance to defend with a unanimous decision over Adil Anwar in the same venue in July. His first fight under Hearn will be announced soon.

Olympic Gold medal hero Luke Campbell will box for the fifth time in the paid ranks on the card after he made it four wins from four on the undercard of Carl Froch’s epic World title battle with George Groves on Saturday, and Hearn expects big things in 2014 for his two new recruits.

“I’m delighted to welcome Tommy and Darren to the Matchroom stable,” said Hearn. “Tommy is one of the most exciting lightweights in Britain and hugely popular in Hull, which is a key city for our development in boxing. There are some huge domestic clashes out there and 2014 is set to be a big year for Tommy.

“Darren is one of the most underrated fighters in the country. He will fight anyone, anywhere, and I am looking for Darren to win the belt outright and move on to challenge for the European title.”

More fights will be added to the Hull Arena bill soon while tickets will go on sale next week.
