Tommy Fletcher has joined the professional ranks after agreeing to terms with promoter Frank Warren and Queensberry.

The big-punching 20-year-old, who hails from Hockwold, is tipped by many to have a bright future within the sport.

And having previously been compared to the likes of former WBC heavyweight title holder Deontay Wilder, Fletcher is confident he is in the right environment to fulfil his potential.

“I think Frank is the best in the business for young fighters,” said Fletcher.

“He is definitely great at bringing young prospects along and you can see what he’s done with Dennis (McCann), David Adeleye and people like that, for instance, where they have gone pro from scratch with Frank and now look at them.

“They are becoming big names in the sport and if Frank can do that for them, why can’t he do it for me? He can definitely do it for me.

“I just need to get my debut done and get a bit of ring rust off as I haven’t boxed for two years now.

“Queensberry, not just Frank, but everyone who is working around him are a close knit team and I believe they can get fighters to where they want to get to.

“Of course I had offers from other promoters but I sat down with my team and family and weighed up the pros and cons. Frank was very interested in me and from what he said it was a no-brainer to go with him.”

Meanwhile, Hall of Fame promoter Warren said of his new recruit: “Tommy is a young fighter with enormous potential and I am thrilled to bring him on board with us here at Queensberry. Taking young prospects from day one to the top is what we specialise in and I believe Tommy has all the ingredients to make a big impression in the sport.

“It is only early days, but the reports on the progress he is making in the gym are hugely encouraging and I feel certain that his journey will be an exciting one. I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up having another heavyweight force on our hands in a few years time.”
