Welterweight Prospect Jalil Hackett Signs With Matchroom Boxing

Press Release:

Jalil ‘Major’ Hackett has signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom.

Hackett (8-0 7 KOs) recorded his fifth straight win inside the distance in his last fight in December, picking up his first title as he stopped Adrian Gutierrez inside three rounds to claim the WBC Youth Silver Welterweight title in Houston, Texas.

That was a seventh TKO for the precocious 21 year old in his eight wins since turning pro in June 2021, having had a glittering amateur career that saw him gather 11 national titles and multiple international tournament wins, and now the rising star from Washington DC will look to move to the next level with Hearn and Matchroom, with his first fight under the promotional banner to be announced next week.
