Natasha Jonas inks Boxxer deal

Natasha Jonas will soon get her career back on track after signing a new promotional deal.

The Liverpudlian, nicknamed ‘Miss GB’, had previously been with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing.

Jonas was last in action in May when she dropped a decision at the hands of undisputed female lightweight world champion Katie Taylor in Manchester.

She had been set to box back in October, as part of the supporting cast to Liam Smith’s battle for Scouse super-welterweight supremacy against local rival Anthony Fowler at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, exclusively live on DAZN, but Hearn and Matchroom removed her from the bill during fight week due to being unable to match her.

As a result, the five-time national amateur champion and former WBA International super-featherweight champion as a pro has decided to move on to pastures new after inking with Ben Shalom, Boxxer and Sky Sports.

Jonas, who has yet to have her return date confirmed, is delighted to have her next move nailed down and joins the likes of WBO middleweight world champion Savannah Marshall, the world’s best female boxer Claressa Shields, Team GB Olympian and pro debutant Caroline Dubois and top prospect Ebonie Jones under the Boxxer banner.

“I’m so happy to have signed with BOXXER and to remain with Sky Sports who are the biggest and best platform for our sport in the UK,” said Jonas, who is trained by Joe Gallagher. “I can’t wait to get started in the BOXXER ring and get back challenging for a world title soon with my biggest fights ahead of me on Sky Sports.”

Details regarding Jonas’ ring return are understood to be on the verge of being made public.

Meanwhile, Florian Marku will return to the ring on a Boxxer card later this month.

The IBF International welterweight champion has been pitted against French contender Jorick Luisetto on November 20, as part of a card that is topped by Richard Riakporhe as he takes on Olanrewaju Durodola for the vacant WBC Silver cruiserweight title in the main event.

The aforementioned Dubois debuts, while Hosea Burton battles Dan Azeez for the vacant British light-heavyweight title.

Mikael Lawal, another destructive cruiserweight, is back in action along with the highly-rated duo of Adam and Hassan Azim.
