Super Fight Promotions (Amir Khan) Captures London 2012 Superstar John Joe Nevin

Press Release


LONDON (7 Oct 2012) - Super Fight Promotions is delighted to announce the signing of London 2012 Irish Olympic silver medalist John Joe Nevin.


The 23-year-old who dazzled at last summer’s Olympic Games, only missing gold in the final to Luke Campbell after a closely edged 14 points to 11 thriller, becomes the second capture of the newly formed promotional company, launched by British boxing ace Amir Khan.


As a bantamweight star with an excellent amateur background, including five national senior titles and two bronze World Amateur Championships, he has long been tipped to make a successful leap into the professional game.


Nevin now joins Khan’s younger brother Haroon as the latest name to join Super Fight Promotions, which boasts the well respected promoter Dennis Hobson as a partner in the company, with the Irishman set to make his debut on January 19th at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester.


Khan has been tracking the Mullingar native for a while and it was his performances at this summer’s Olympics which really caught his eye.


Amir Khan, said: “When I saw John Joe Nevin at the Olympics he really impressed me and I knew right away he was a real talent. He’s slick, moves well and has a lot of attributes that I know will take him very far as a professional. I’m extremely pleased that we have managed to bring him to Super Fight Promotions because he’s exactly the type of young, exciting and gifted talent we want under our banner. We have high hopes for him and under Super Fight Promotions he will have the best platform in which to fulfil his enormous potential.”


John Joe Nevin, said: “This was a really tough decision for me as I have trained with the high performance team for many years and we are a tight family unit. I have enjoyed my time with the Irish team and am extremely proud of what we have achieved to date. I would like to win a world title and this is the route that I need to take. I am excited for the future and I'm looking forward to continuing my relationship with my trainer and working with Super Fight Promotions. I decided to go with Amir as he is a professional boxer and understands the professional game. He himself was an Olympic medalist so he has gone through the transition from amateur to professional. I'm looking forward to my first professional fight in the New Year.”


Dennis Hobson added: “We had been tracking John for a while, even before the Olympic Games. He was one young fighter we had identified as having the talent to make some big moves in the professional game. His performances in the Olympics only further highlighted this fact to us and so we are delighted to have him on board at Super Fight Promotions. He’s at the right age and has the right amateur pedigree to make the transition into the professional ranks a smooth and highly successful one.”


Nevin will make his first professional bow at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester on January 19th with ticket information to be released in due course.
