Jamie McDonnell is on Board With Queensberry, BoxNation

Promoter Dennis Hobson is delighted to announce that he has reached an exclusive agreement with Queensberry Promotions that will see IBF world bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell defend his world title on 'The Channel Of Champions', BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).

The multi-fight deal will see Hobson promote shows in association with Queensberry Promotions in which McDonnell will headline stacked cards that will also feature Queensberry's roster of boxers as well as Dennis Hobson's own excellent emerging talent.

McDonnell, who won the title in sensational style against the fearsome punching Julio Ceja, will make the first defence of his IBF crown live and exclusive on BoxNation with the opponent, date and venue to be confirmed next week at a press conference.

The Doncaster star is one of British boxing’s biggest success stories in recent years having worked his way up through British, Commonwealth and European titles to earn his world title shot after two early career setbacks.

Fans crammed into Doncaster Rovers Keepmoat Stadium on a magical night in May to see the exciting 27-year-old defeat Ceja over twelve hard rounds to win on the judges’ scorecards and achieve his lifetime dream of becoming world champion.

Some exciting fights lie ahead for McDonnell and unifying the titles will be high on his agenda as he aims to define himself as the number one in the bantamweight division with Dennis Hobson, Queensberry Promotions and BoxNation backing him all the way.

Hobson, who secured crucial home advantage for his fighter on his world title challenge, was hugely excited that he is working with Queensberry and that Jamie will feature on BoxNation; “We're absolutely delighted to link up with Queensberry Promotions and BoxNation. This deal has been in the pipeline for quite some time following conversations between myself and George Warren. We're hugely looking forward to Jamie defending his world championship on the channel and developing him into one of the biggest names in boxing."

Asif Vali of Platinum Consultancy has been working alongside Dennis Hobson Promotions and is delighted for Jamie McDonnell in securing this mega deal. Asif commented, "Dennis and I met with all the other major promoters in the UK and abroad, as well as all the major TV broadcasters, looking to secure the right broadcaster for Jamie - and after some very lengthy negotiations we have managed to secure this great deal with Queensberry which will see Jamie as the main event headlining shows in big arenas in the UK."

A press conference will take place next week in London at a date and venue to be confirmed soon with further news about this exciting link up with Queensberry Promotions.
