Nick Blackwell Inks Promotional With Mick Hennessy

London - Mick Hennessy is delighted to announce that Britain's hottest middleweight prospect the West Country Warrior Nick Blackwell has signed an exclusive long-term promotional deal with Hennessy Sports.

With no amateur career and having to learn on the job since he turned pro, Nick has graduated from being the youngest ever-English champion to a genuine world-class contender.

Nick Blackwell said on signing his promotional deal with Mick Hennessy “Words can't describe how happy I am, it's taken a lot of ups and downs, dedication and hard work but it's finally starting to pay off.

I’m looking forward to my first fight with Hennessy Sports on Channel 5 in October.”

“I can’t thank Mick (Hennessy), Will (Storey) and Mark (Kent) enough for helping to make this happen, I won't disappoint.”

Blackwell has fought at world level from the very early stages of his pro career against the likes of Martin Murray and in the last year Blackwell who has only just turned 23 has not only given Max Bursak a torrid time in the Ukraine after putting him down heavy and losing the decision which most people thought he won clearly. He has also sparred with many of the world's best Middle and Super Middleweights.

His performances have made him one of the most avoided fighters out there and many leading British contenders have consistently ducked him.

Hewn from solid granite with huge strides in power and ring-craft, Nick is set to take the boxing world by storm.

His path to a world title will start in October live on Channel 5 and Mick Hennessy who has guided numerous British talents including Carl Froch to the world title is delighted to have secured the signature of one of boxing’s best kept secrets and to be able to showcase Nick's fights on free to air terrestrial television"

Promoter Mick Hennessy said. “Nick has certainly done things the hard way in his young career, he is an old fashioned throwback fighter who will take on all comers and we are looking forward to giving him the great support he needs to help him realise his dream of becoming a major world champion.

“His mandatory status for the British title has been an inconvenient truth and he has already been swerved by certain fighters.

“We are now here to make sure that he gets his opportunities to fight for these titles.”

More information on Nick’s first fight promoted by Hennessy Sports will be announced next week.
