The latest news from the local boxing scene
Islington super lightweight Louis Isaacs has signed with Goodwin Promotions after turning professional.
The 20-year-old took part in 75 contests as an amateur representing Hoxton-based Lion ABC, winning five London titles.
Isaacs, though, believes the time is now right to turn professional and is hoping to make his debut on a Goodwin show in March.
Another former Lion boxer Sam Cox, meanwhile, is looking forward to his second fight as a professional later this year.
