Super lightweight prospect Khaleel Majid has found a promotional home. The Manchester-based fighter will take his talents to Matchroom Boxing by way of a multi-fight deal.
“I’m very excited to be teaming up with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing,” Majid said.
“This is a big step in my career and something that I have been working really hard towards from when I first laced up a pair of gloves. I’ve paid my dues on the small hall circuit and I’m looking forward to getting my name out there more under my new team.”
Trained by Paulino Silva, the British fighter has amassed a record of 10-0. In his last bout, he stopped Jamie Quinn in the third round. Now, he will look to throw his name into an exciting 140-pound landscape that is filled with talented fighters, including Richardson Hitchins, Regis Prograis, Rolando Romero, Teofimo Lopez, Josh Taylor and many others.
“The goal for 2023 is to get my name out there, have a breakout fight and show people that I’m one to watch,” Majid said.
“God willing I will win a title this year and carry on moving up the rankings. The Super-Lightweight division is very competitive and there are some great fights out there for me.”
