Thomas Hart will be back in the ring in a few weeks’ time.
The 24-year-old former Rotunda ABC amateur made a successful start to his campaign in the paid code back in March and will look to build on it down the East Lancs Road.
Hart, a former England and Team GB man who was planning on staying in the amateur game until the Tokyo Games in 2020, trains with Joe McNally and Declan O’Rourke and campaigns in the light-heavyweight division.
The former English national titlist outpointed Poland’s Przemyslaw Binienda over four rounds at the M&S Bank Arena in his home city, exclusively live on Sky Sports in the UK and DAZN Stateside, as part of the supporting cast to Liam Smith’s stoppage win against Sam Eggington.
And he will hope to secure a second win as a pro on July 6 at Manchester Arena.
Hart was meant to box on June 21 at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London, exclusively live on Sky Sports in the UK and DAZN Stateside, on a JDNXTGEN card featuring the return of British super-welterweight champion Ted Cheeseman.
But the man who is sponsored by local clothing brand Lost Soles has been added to a card that has yet to be formally announced but will feature WBA International super-welterweight champion Scott Fitzgerald.
‘Fitzy’, fresh from his triumph over his fellow Commonwealth Games gold medallist and former Team GB team-mate Anthony Fowler back in March at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena, faces former British super-welterweight champion Brian Rose, who was back in action with a win in Liverpool last month, and hopes a win will lead to him taking on the aforementioned Cheeseman towards the back end of the year.
