The 23 year-old former English schoolboy finalist possesses fire in his fists and, after a successful amateur career, has made an impressive start to life in the paid code, outpointing all five of his opponents.
“I’m delighted to have signed a promotional deal with Frank Warren. He is the best promoter in the country and has a reputation for developing young British fighters into stars! All boxers want to be singed up to a top promoter and I believe Frank can take me all the way; it’s a great feeling,” said Cartwright.
Trained by Danny Witho and boxing out of the No Limits Gym in Liverpool, flame-haired Cartwright is determined to mirror his boxing idol Canelo Alvarez’s all-out war brand of fighting.
“Fans can expect fireworks! I am a come forward fighter and I like putting the pressure on which is always exciting to watch. I’m probably a stronger boxer than I am a fighter but I’ll not run from a good tear-up.
“I’ve got a good, hard, straight jab and pretty good head movement. I stopped a few in the amateurs. They tended to wince from every shot I landed, a bit like my idol Canelo!”
Managed by Queensberry Promotions matchmaker Jason McColry, Cartwright has his eyes set on a British title. Undefeated Cartwright, a former repair fitter, believes he has the temperament and natural ability to take him to the top of the domestic scene.
“Obviously every boxer wants to win the British title and that is definitely my aim at the moment. I know I’m good enough to get to that level and its all about putting the effort in during training and taking what I have learnt in the gym into the ring. As long as I do that I have no doubts I will reach British level.”
