Manchester based cruiserweight, Jordan Thompson, has signed a promotional deal with Frank Warren.
Thompson, who turned professional in 2015, has stopped four of his five opponents. This includes a stoppage of, Remigijus Ziausys, who both Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora failed to stop.
“Teaming up with Frank is massive and I’m going to repay the faith he’s shown in me,” said, Thompson. “I’ve got a huge opportunity to increase my profile with the extra exposure BT Sport and BoxNation will give me. I’m planning on making a bang when I get my chance!
“The domestic Cruiserweight division is wide open and I’m really excited about putting myself right in the mix. Down South, you have Isaac Chamberlain who recently beat Wadi Camacho for the Southern Arena title and up North closer to me you have Sam Hyde. I believe I beat them both already but I’m still learning and I need to listen to the advice of those around me.
“I just want to get in that ring against some good opposition, entertain the fans and put on a show because that’s what it’s all about. I think there’s a big space for me in the Cruiserweight division, I’m charismatic and bring something different to the rest of the prospects. I can see myself achieving a lot in this division and very quickly.”

Thompson, the son of two Karate world champions, is currently trained by Haroon Headley in Manchester. The talented cruiserweight also fights out of the Heavy Hitters Gym, with his new stablemate, Jack Catterall.
“I’ve always had a great relationship with Haroon so it made sense to go with him. We go way back to before I even started boxing and it’s good to have him in my corner. I put my trust and faith in him and I know that we’re going to achieve big things together.
“Haroon took me down to Lee Beard’s gym when I started out in boxing and gave me the opportunity to be where I am now. I have a lot of respect for him and he has a lot of respect for me and that’s why we get on so well together.”
“Boxing in Manchester is on the up again with WBO Lightweight Champion Terry Flanagan leading the way and our Jack making a name for himself as one of the best Super-Lightweights in the country. We just need someone flying the flag in the Cruiserweight division and that’s going to be me.”
Hall of Fame promoter, Frank Warren, says he has high hopes for Thompson in the cruiserweight division.
“Jordan is an exciting addition to our growing team of young talent and I’m looking forward to guiding him to the top of the domestic Cruiserweight division and beyond,” said Warren. “He certainly possesses knockout power and has an entertaining style that fans will love.”
