David Avanesyan has signed a new multi-fight promotional deal after another win earlier this month.
The Armenian-Russian European welterweight champion, managed by Neil Marsh, has inked a pact with Queensberry.
Avanesyan took out Josh Kelly, a former Commonwealth welterweight king, inside six rounds back in February and then dispatched of mandatory challenger Liam Taylor within two at the SSE Arena in Wembley, London, on October 2.
“I am very happy to be signing with Frank and very confident that he will deliver me the World title shot I need,” said Avanesyan, the 33-year-old former WBA ‘regular’ world champion. “I want to become a two-time world champion.
Frank Warren, the Hall of Fame promoter who heads up Queensberry, is delighted to have secured the capture of Avanesyan (28-3-1, 16 KOs).
He said: “I have a fantastic working relationship with Neil Marsh who believes Queensberry have the team to get David marquee fights and titles. We will deliver.
“David is based in the Midlands now and become an attraction for British fans who know a good fighter when they see one.
“Fans who come to our shows will love seeing even more of him, and so will viewers on BT Sport.”
Avanesyan is trained in Newark by Carl Greaves and will be hoping to be back in action sooner rather than later as he targets another shot at global glory.
