Jake Best, a Bournemouth based boxer plying his trade at light middleweight has signed a professional contract with fast growing promotional outfit Assassin Promotions, headed up by Kaz Evans and based in Brighton, United Kingdom.
The orthodox fighter from Poole has his sights set on a division occupied by big names such as Canelo Alvarez and Britain’s Liam Smith and believes he has what it takes to take the division by storm.
The unbeaten fighter is the latest in a string of signings for Assassin and will fight on the recently announced Assassin show on March 4th at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London, where exciting featherweight Ben Jones will fight for the WBC International Featherweight title. Best will be making his Assassin debut on the card, with his opponent to be announced next week.
Best said: “Assassin are a growing promotional outfit and it’s a pleasure to put pen to paper with a promoter who can really help my career progress through the ranks. My ambitions are clear; I want to be at the top of the division, it’s as simple as that. I’m well prepped and ready to kick start my journey. I’ve been hard at work in the gym and I’m confident in my ability as a fighter.”
Kaz Evans, Founder of Assassin Promotions said: “I met Jake and I was immediately impressed by his attitude and ability, I knew he was a natural fit for Assassin. He has the pedigree to be a real success and I for one am looking forward to seeing him in action on the London show.”
