BCB Promotions are delighted to announce the signing of undefeated super bantamweight prospect, James Beech Junior, on a three-year management deal.
The 21 year-old (6-0) from Walsall joins BCB from MTK Birmingham and follows in his father’s footsteps in signing for Errol Johnson.
Beech Senior enjoyed 31 professional outings under Johnson between 1999 and 2008 and Junior is delighted to continue the family tradition.
“I always knew I’d end up signing with BCB,” he explained. “I’ve really enjoyed my time at MTK and they have gotten me to 6-0 in a relatively short space of time. I’d like to thank everyone at MTK for their support but this is the next chapter for me.
“BCB are growing all the time. They’ve come on massively over the last year or so and I’m really excited by what the future holds.
“My dad and Errol go back a long way and he’s really pleased that I’m following in his footsteps.”
The graduate of Pleck Boxing Club, who he represented on 80 occasions, will continue to train out of Great Wyrley Boxing Club under Pete Hickenbottom but will visit BCB HQ for regular sparring and fitness sessions with trainers Paul Mann and Ben Wilkes.
“I’m looking forward to working with James,” added Wilkes, pictured with Beech. “He’s a lovely lad with a bright future. He’ll do the vast majority of his work with Pete but we’ll have him over for sparring and I’m sure we can help push him on to the next level.”
