Matt Remillard Inks Promotional Contract With Top Rank

MANCHESTER, Conn. – Undefeated, 24-year-old NABF and NABO champion Matt “Sharpshooter” Remillard (23-0, 13 KOs), arguably America’s leading featherweight, has signed a  promotional contract with Top Rank.

The Manchester, Connecticut fighter is rated No. 4 by the World Boxing Association and World Boxing Organization, as well as No. 5 by the World Boxing Council.

"Matt is a skilled, exciting fighter. We are pleased he has joined our company," said Bob Arum of Top Rank.

“Top Rank has some of the best fighters in the world,” an ecstatic Remillard said. “It’s the best promotional company in terms of moving fighters and getting them big fights. I’m really excited about signing with Top Rank. I remember when I first started fighting that Top Rank was the best promoter and now I’m finally there with them. Bob Arum and his team will get me to the next level."

Remillard has shown some signs being like a young Micky Ward, another New Englander known for his vicious, devastating body attacks. Lately, “Sharpshooter” has been zeroing in on his opponents’ livers with breath-taking shots and, consequently, sudden stoppages.

“Dealing with Top Rank was very professional,” Remillard’s manager Bret Hallenbeck noted about contract negotiations. “We’re looking forward to working with a quality promotional company like Top Rank.”
