Australian Cruiserweight prospect Jason “The Warrior” Whateley has signed a co-management agreement with Matt Clark and Marcos Amado. The 2016 Olympian and 2018 Commonwealth Games silver medalist looks forward to progressing his career under Amado, who also trains Whateley, and Clark who guided Lucas Browne to the WBA Heavyweight title.
“I feel like I started having success internationally as an amateur, yet I am more suited to the pro ranks,” stated Whateley. “I’m excited to take this next step in the pro game and sign a management agreement with a team that can help me further my career and fulfill my goals. I look forward to seeing what I can do on the world stage”.
Whately is coming off a 6th round demolition of former contender Victor Oganov, raising his record to 5-0 (4 KO).
“I believe Jason has the X-Factor that the Australian sporting public has been waiting to get excited about,” said Amado. He’s the hardest working and most down to earth boxer you’ll come across. He has an amateur pedigree, with talent to burn”.
Clark continued: “Jason is an exciting prospect whose all action style is tailor made for TV. He has a tremendous workrate for a guy standing 6’5 and fighting in the Cruiserweight division. I’m proud that he has placed his faith in Marcos and myself and I’m looking forward to being a part of his journey. He has an enormous future in the sport.”
