Essex Ventilation Services is delighted to sponsor the heavyweight boxing sensation Johnny Fisher, AKA ‘The Romford Bull’. The sponsorship comes as the 21-year-old kick starts his professional boxing career on a five-fight deal with MATCHROOM Sport.
During his short stint as an amateur boxer, Johnny was London ABA Champion and three of his four fights ended within the first minute.
As a result, opportunities for the young star rolled in from various boxing promoters. Yet none compared to Eddie Hearn’s MATCHROOM Sport, which has relationships with all major sports broadcasters. Better still, the training facility is based in Johnny’s hometown of Romford.
“When the opportunity arose to sponsor Johnny Fisher, there was no question about our involvement,” explains Justin Blue, Managing Director of Essex Ventilation Services.
“We’ve always been avid supporters of local sport, especially boxing. Johnny has huge potential, and we are in no doubt he will be Essex’s next sporting legend.”
The 6ft 5inch Romford Bull describes himself as “not that experienced, but explosive” and is dedicated to maximising his opportunity with MATCHROOM Sport.
Johnny couldn’t have asked for a better start to his professional boxing career, than with renowned trainer, Mark Tibbs.
Mark has worked with a plethora of pedigree and amateur boxers. He has helped to mould the successful careers of WBO world super-middleweight campion, Billy Joe Saunders; WBA International super middleweight challenger in 2015, Frank Bulioni; and WBC Interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte the (who won 11 out of 11) and inspirational figure to his newest recruit, Johnny Fisher.
The Romford Bull’s Journey To Pro Boxing
Since the age of six or seven, Johnny Fisher has boxed, but during his years in higher education spent more time on the rugby pitch than in the ring. It was by chance that he fell back in to the sport.
While studying for his history degree at Exeter University Johnny contacted Sam Jones of S-JAM Boxing to ask if he needed a sparring partner for Joe Joyce. He was in luck. After a series of sparring sessions, Johnny was asked to spar Joyce at his camp in Las Vagas in preparation for his fight with Daniel Dubois.
At that point Johnny was on track for a First in his history degree, but with the prospect of writing a dissertation after sparring and limited access to research materials, Johnny decided that a 2:1 would still be a great result. He graduated in the summer of 2020.
Having now worked with trainer Mark Tibbs since September 2020, Johnny is preparing for his professional debut on 20th February 2021 on Sky Sports.
