Another Irish boxer turns pro – links up with Steve Goodwin

The flood of Irish fighters joining the pro ranks continues with another young talent making the move.

London-based bantamweight Prince Brady this week had his move to the pros confirmed.

Zimbabwean-born, Brady spent the majority of his childhood in Ireland, living in Skerries and Balbriggan in north Fingal.

While here he would box for Bracken BC in Balbriggan alongside current pro welter Crank Whitehouse [6(1)-0], before relocating to London and boxing out of the famous West Ham ABC with the likes of Daniel Dubois.

23 years old, ‘Dreamhills’ will be trained in the pros by former British super bantamweight champion Matthew Marsh.

His manager in the pro game will be the King of the York Hall, Steve Goodwin, who described how “this lad is very talented. [I’m] delighted to welcome another great prospect to the Goodwin team.”.

A debut date for Brady will be announced in the near future.
