Jamie Hughes with Dave Coldwell

A Carl Froch sparring partner, Jamie Hughes, has become the latest signing for Coldwell Boxing.

The Yorkshireman, who won 26 of 31 contests in the unpaid ranks, will turn professional on the undercard of the Curtis Woodhouse v Dave Ryan bout on September 28, at the Magna Centre in Rotherham.

“Jamie is a quality boxer and we’ve got some really big ideas for what we want to do with him,” said Dave Coldwell.

“He’s a tricky southpaw and he’ll give lots of people problems on the way to the top. Robert McCracken speaks highly of him because he had Jamie in sparring with Carl Froch when Carl was preparing for his world title shot against Lucien Bute.

“For Froch to use him in preparation for such an important fight speaks volumes of Jamie’s ability and I’m confident that he can carve out a successful career for himself.”
