Butcher Signs Promotional Deal With Maloney Promotions

Scottish promoter Prospect Boxing announced that Motherwell flyweight Iain Butcher has signed a deal with Maloney Promotions.


After completing the agreement with Frank Maloney, Prospect Boxing’s Paul Graham gleamed “Iain has had a great start to his career, but now with Frank (Maloney) on side, I am sure that it wont be long before Scotland has It’s next world flyweight champion joining the salubrious roll of honour along side Benny Lynch, Walter McGowan, Pat Clinton and Paul Weir.”


Maloney, who also has an impressive track record in dealing with the smaller weight divisions enthused “I had heard a lot about young Butcher, he’s making waves after only his third contest and I am looking to build on previous fights and build him into a title contender”


“He will have his first contest (and fourth professional fight) on the undercard of the Price v Sexton British heavyweight title fight on 19th May at Aintree race course in Liverpool. The card is already jam packed with six title fights, so to add Iain to the undercard shows how highly I rate him. After that fight we will then will sit down and discuss the next move ”


Maloney added “I have a great affinity with Scotland and it’s boxers and we hope to run shows with Iain Butcher headlining some time in the not so distant future and keep him busy as we look to make him into a champion”
