Hatton Inks Bunn and De'ath

HATTON Promotions have showed their ambition again by signing unbeaten prospects Craig Bunn and Kallum De’ath to promotional agreements.

The Manchester pair have decided to return to the professional ranks and will be trained by Joe Pennington.

Super-bantamweight De’ath won both his professional contests, but was just 18-years-old when he returned for another spell in the amateurs in March 2008.

Pennington hopes the 22-year-old will box in December and insists: "Kallum is more mature now and is ready to make a real go of it.

"He has his own house, a missus and a baby. He has proven to me that he wants to be a success.

"Kallum was offered good money when he turned professional previously, but wasn’t ready.

"He had lost a controversial decision to Liam Walsh in the ABA semi-finals also so he took the chance to turn over."

Bunn, 25, is unbeaten in five professional fights, winning four and being held to a draw on one occasion.

He will compete at light-heavyweight and like stablemate De’ath hopes to box before Christmas.

Bunn last boxed in December 2006, and quit the sport because of personal problems.

In preparation for his return, Bunn has been sparring with Tony Bellew.

Pennington added: "Craig was a bit of a wild kid, but has settled back into boxing and will be a real handful.

"He will stand down from no man and is very aggressive with a fan friendly style.

"With Hatton Promotions backing Craig and Kallum I am certain they will make the most of their second chance."
