Dewayne Beamon has signed a promotional deal with Total Sports Management.
The 35-year-old, from North Carolina in the United States, was in world title action as recently as August 2019 when he took on Juan Francisco Estrada for the WBC title in the 115-pound division.
Beamon, since then, has boxed three times, most recently in February when he had a three-round stoppage win over Victor Berrio in Colombia.
The deal, which will run for two fights with the option of an extension and will see Stephen Vaughan Jr. act as ‘Mr Stop Running’s’ European representative, will begin in the early summer months.
The five-foot five-inch orthodox puncher (17-4-2, 12 KOs) is set to box twice more in the US before vying for the vacant World Boxing Federation super-flyweight world title against an opponent to be confirmed.
“Dewayne comes to us with a wealth of experience at championship level,” said the aforementioned Vaughan Jr. regarding his latest capture. “He has been wanting to come and fight in Europe for some time and we are delighted to be able to deliver the opportunity for him to do so.”
Germany, on June 5, is where the fight will take place, with further details to be revealed in due course.
“We feel, with a win for the WBF crown, that Dewayne will become a viable option for top-level contests with the major sanctioning bodies.”
