BCB Promotions have announced the recent signing of former Commonwealth Flyweight Champion, Thomas Essomba.
The 31 year-old former Olympian has signed a managerial contract with Errol Johnson, BCB’s Head of Boxing, after relocating to Wolverhampton.
Essomba represented Cameroon at the London 2012 Olympics before concentrating his efforts as a professional from 2014. He defeated Walin Din to lift the Commonwealth strap in 2015 and also held theEnglish Bantamweight Title before losing out to BCB’s Kyle Williams last term.
“I’m delighted to have Thomas on board,” said BCB’s Head Trainer, Paul Mann. “He has an excellent amateur pedigree and is a real force in the professional game. He can really bang and we are sure he will cause problems at title level in the not too distant future.
“He’s a model professional who trains and works really hard. He’s a great addition to the stable and we thank his previous manager, Kieran Farrell, for recommending us to him.”
