Logan McGuinness is Now a Promotional Free Agent

ORANGEVILLE, Ontario, Canada -- Undefeated North American Boxing Association (NABA) featherweight champion and world title contender, Logan Cotton McGuinness (20-0-1, 9 KOs), is a promotional free agent.

The 26-year-old, fan-friendly McGuinness fought only once in 2013, capturing the vacant NABA featherweight title by way of a unanimous 12-round decision over South American champion Sergio Carlos Santillan (30-12-3). The rugged Irish-Canadian boxer has been mourning the recent death of his manager, Stephen den Elzen.

McGuinness had been rated as high as No. 4 in the world, however, his lack of activity currently finds him rated No. 14 in the World Boxing Council (WBC). A huge draw in Ontario, McGuinness has also been the NABA super featherweight and lightweight champion during his 5 ½ year professional career.

"I'm confident of winning a world title, hopefully as soon as this year, with the right promoter in my corner," McGuinness said. "I'm thrilled to announce that I have an experienced boxing manager, Attorney Larry Army, Jr., as a new member of my team. I was deeply saddened by the loss of my good friend and manager, Stephen den Elezen, who I'm sure would be happy with my selection of Larry as my advisor. I'm sure that Larry will connect me with the right promoter to help me realize my dream of becoming world champion."

Army is president of Massachusetts-based Elite Management, which is a full-service boxing management firm focused on branding professional boxers. Best known for guiding the successful careers of world-title contenders Edwin Rodriguez and Peter Manfredo, Jr., Army presently manages one of the hottest prospects in the world, new USBA lightweight champion Ivan "The Terrible" Redkach.

"I'm excited to be working with a world-class boxer like Logan McGuinness," Army remarked. "Not only is he a highly-rated fighter, Logan is a tremendous ticket seller in Canada. He is an exciting, good looking Irish-Canadian fighter who has tremendous marketability potential across North America and Europe. It's not going to be difficult finding a top promoter to sign Logan to a promotional contract position him to fight for the world title."

McGuinness' most notable victories have been against 2004 Canadian Olympian Benot Gaudet (24-2), Dominican Republic champions Carlos Manuel Reyes (23-1-1) and Hector Julio Avila (47-5), Polish title-holder and European title challenger Krzysztof Szot (16-3-1), Bahamian champion Meacher Major (20-4-1), Daniel Ruiz (23-3-1) and Carribbean champion Pedro Navarette (24-6-3).

Maybe if more national titlist fought for the Commonwealth belt then it's credence would be higher. There's 53 countries who could contest it, so some great fights could be made.

[QUOTE=Mick Higgs;14204587]Josh Warrington is the current Commonwealth champion & team McGuiness should push the CBC for a title fight.[/QUOTE] unfortunately Commonwealth title has lost its luster. Otherwise our big stars Pascal and Stevenson wouldve gone through that route.
