Amateur star Iain Weaver signs with Eddie Hearn; will make debut on Darren Barker undercard

Posted: July 2, 2012 in Uncategorized

Iain Weaver will make his professional debut on the undercard of Darren Barker’s return to the ring in September.

The 22-year-old super-featherweight has signed with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Sports and the man from Dorset could  make quite an impression, according to Hearn. 

“He’s an exceptional young talent and we look forward to giving him the best opportunity to reach the top,” said Hearn, whose show headlined by Barker takes place at the Alexandra Palace on September 8. 

Weaver will join fellow Team GB boxers Scotty Cardle, Martin Ward and Kal Yafai in the Matchroom stable.
