Promoter Eddie Hearn has announced that Scotty Cardle will fight on three huge bills at the very beginning of his career.
The GB star will make his professional debut on the undercard of the Kell Brook vs. Mathew Hatton showdown at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on March 17, live on Sky Sports.
A month later he will be in the ring again on the undercard of Tony Bellew’s British light-heavyweight title defence against Danny McIntosh. ‘The Big Bang’, promoted by Coldwell Boxing in association with Eddie Hearn, is being held at the Echo Arena Liverpool, April 14, also live on Sky Sports.
Cardle will make his third professional appearance on the undercard of Carl Froch’s homecoming bout in Nottingham in May, the details of which are still to be confirmed. The busy schedule will be a fast and furious welcome to the paid ranks, but follows promoter Eddie Hearn’s philosophy that it’s important for young fighters to be as active as possible.
“I’m delighted to be able to add Scotty to these bills,” said Hearn. “I’ve got high hopes for him in the pro game and he’ll get a great taste of big British boxing nights in Sheffield, Liverpool and hopefully Nottingham.”
Cardle’s debut is part of a fantastic undercard for the Brook vs. Hatton showdown which features a second Commonwealth super bantamweight title defence for Carl Frampton, Greg Proksa’s first defence of his European middleweight title against Kerry Hope and former British welterweight champion Lee Purdy aiming to get back on track against Nottingham’s Adnan Amar.
Exciting middleweight prospect John Ryder hopes to take his unbeaten record into double figures against Huddersfield danger man Alastair Warren who fought for the WBC Youth World title in 2010. Eamonn O’Kane makes his fourth pro appearance when he takes on Wayne Reed, while unbeaten Dudley middleweight Ryan Aston faces Barnsley’s Lee Noble and Sheffield Heavyweight David Howe also features.
