The undefeated light-heavyweight contender was today unveiled as the latest star-name addition to the BOXXER and Sky Sports stable at a press conference in his hometown of Croydon, London.
The former British light-heavyweight champion, who celebrated his 30th birthday yesterday, has signed an exclusive multi-fight, multi-year agreement with BOXXER which will see his forthcoming world title quest air live and exclusively in the UK.
His first fight under the BOXXER banner will be live and exclusive on Sky Sports, in the UK & Republic of Ireland, on May 6 at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham.
A bronze medalist at the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil, Buatsi joins a roster packed with fellow Olympians, including Lauren Price, Ben Whittaker, Frazer Clarke, Natasha Jonas, Karriss Artingstall and Caroline Dubois.
With sixteen professional wins and a two-year stint as WBA International light-heavyweight champion to his credit, Buatsi is now set on winning major world titles in one of boxing’s most competitive weight divisions.
