Thomas Mattice announced today via press release that he has signed with Matchroom Boxing.
The hard-luck fighter, who recently beat Christian Tapia, a world-rated super featherweight, has been on the bad end of a few decisions which have left him promoter less early in his career.
“I’m very excited to sign with Matchroom,” said Mattice. “This the perfect platform for me to showcase my talents and chase down World titles. I’m now fighting in the division I should’ve been, so I’m here now and planning to be the face of it.
Mattice now looks to target the biggest and best names in the division, and sees himself as one of the top dogs in the sport.
“I’m delighted to welcome Thomas to the team,” said Eddie Hearn. “Thomas is a great example of what happens when you take opportunities given to you with both hands. In Cleveland, in front of his home fans, Thomas took a gamble, beat an unbeaten fighter and has now been rewarded with a contract. Thomas is a lesson to young fighters out there to believe in yourself and back your ability, because good things can happen – and we look forward to more big fights for Thomas in 2023.”
