28 year old Heavyweight “Big” Dave Abraham from Watford is the latest prospect to ink a three year deal with Steve Goodwin.


Abraham spent some of 2014 working as a sparring partner with current World Heavyweight Champion Bermaine Stiverne and this week went off to Las Vegas as Bermaine’s guest to see his friend defend his world title against Deontay Wilder this weekend.


“It is a dream for me one day to fight in Vegas rather than just watching” said Abraham before his departure this week.”


I met Steve in the latter part of 2014 and then met several other interested parties. However it was an easy decision to make once I had met everyone and I am confident Steve is the best man to guide my career.”


Abraham will make his debut on the Olivia Goodwin promoted “Best of Enemies” card at York Hall on 21st March and wants to keep very active in 2015. “I am still young for a Heavyweight and have plenty to learn but ring experience is crucial and Steve will provide plenty of that for me.”


Steve Goodwin finished by saying “We are delighted to have signed Dave. Heavyweight boxing is a very exciting division and we are looking forward to navigating Dave through to hopefully some major titles.”
