Goodwin Promotions sign Josh Kennedy

Decorated Amateur star Josh Kennedy from Folkestone is the latest top prospect to join the Goodwin’s under a three year contract.

Kennedy won many titles as an amateur, he won the 2007 golden belt champion, 2008 junior ABA runner up, 2009 junior ABA champion, Four nations bronze medalist,  12x southern counties champion spanning over 9 years , 2x Denmark international box cup gold medalist in 2008 and 2009 , 2x Haringey box cup gold medallist in 2011 and 2013, 2X CYP championship silver medalist, 2x England elite representative and 2014 England elite ABAE quarter finalist.

Kennedy finished his amateur career with 79 fights 60 wins and being ranked 5th in England and 9th in Great Britain  in the 2014 ABAE official rankings.

As an amateur Kennedy defeated the likes of Louis Adolphe (new Warren signing), George Jupp and Liverpools current professional prospect Andy Colquoun (now 9-0 as a pro).

Kennedy’s style is more suited to the pro’s and at only 23 feels the time is right to turn professional.

“I have served my apprenticeship and feel the time is now right. I had several offers on the table but after meeting Steve and his team it took me only 24 hours to decide to join them. We are all heading for the top!”

Steve Goodwin was delighted with his new acquisition “We are delighted that someone with the potential of Josh has chosen to sign with us. We will deliver everything he needs and we have no doubt he has the ability to reach the highest levels as a pro. Expect more exciting to be announce over the forthcoming weeks.”
