QUEENSBERRY SPONSORS IRISH NATIONAL BOXING CHAMPION

Friday 19th October 2018

Queensberry is pleased to announce it will be sponsoring former sixth time Irish national boxing champion Caoimhin Agyarko.

We are committed wholeheartedly to our social responsibility, and understand the importance of engaging and collaborating with organisations in the regions we have worked. This sponsorship allows a young rising star more opportunity to pursue his dreams in boxing.

Originally from London, Caoimhin moved to Belfast when he was eight. He will be making his professional debut on the 20 October, having had over 140 amateur fights boxing for Ireland at the world European championships.

Having been boxing for 14 years, the 21 year old has just signed a professional contract with Frank Warren and will be promoted and managed by Frank Warren Promotions. In an era spanning over 35 years, Frank Warren has worked with some of the biggest fighters in boxing history. Hamed, Bruno, Tyson, Calzaghe, Benn, Collins, Eubank, Khan and Hatton are some of the iconic names he has promoted during his career.

This sponsorship is combined with Queensberry's ongoing support for Teenage Cancer Trust, contributing to helping young people with cancer get the expert treatment and support they need.

Paul Sargent, Chief Executive at Queensberry, commented: 

We always sought to support young people in the areas that we work in to ensure that we aren't just supporting economic regeneration but social development, and this sponsorship is central to this. As a business we have always appreciated the significance of boxing, having put together our own version of the 'Queensberry Rules' which are the guiding principles of the sport, representing the values of sportsmanship and discipline."

Caoimhin Agyarko, commented:

I am grateful to the support that Queensberry has provided me, it will allow me to continue my hard work with the aim of becoming a boxing champion for my nation. It has always been my dream to become a professioinal boxer and it means so much to have support behind me in this endeavour"
