The cruiserweight is a seven-time Irish champion who captured silver at the European Union Championships and after around 300 amateur bouts he has recently turned pro. His ambition was to fight in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, but with a style more suited to the professional game, he has decided to turn to the paid ranks. Sweeney will be managed by MGM Marbella and promoted by South African promoters Golden Gloves.

“With Gary’s amateur record, Golden Gloves promoting him and ourselves managing him, we believe Gary has all the ingredients to reach the very top.” said MGM. “We have been very impressed with him and his attitude makes us believe he is going all the way”.

Rodney Berman from Golden Gloves said “The Irish have never had a world cruiserweight champion before, and I believe we can help make Gary the first. We’ll be aiming for his pro debut in South Africa in September and look for a world youth title by the end of 2016.”
