Heavyweight “Irish” Con Sheehan Signs With Gary Hyde


dcee36de-8a0b-4729-91b5-9321ff53409cInternational boxing manager Gary Hyde (NoWhere2Hyde Management) has announced the signing of one of the best Ireland-born heavyweight prospects in decades, “Irish” Con Sheehan, to an exclusive contract.

The 25-year-old Sheehan, who registered a remarkable 203-18 amateur record, is scheduled to make his professional debut March 13 in the United Kingdom on a show to air on Eurosport. The rugged yet athletic Irishman from Clonmel, the largest town in the County of Tipperary, plans to join one of his former Irish National teammates, undefeated IBF super bantamweight champion Carl Frampton, as world champion in the not too distant future.

The 6′ 5″, 235-pound Sheehan is a six-time Irish National Senior Division champion, winning four titles at heavyweight and two at super heavyweight, who also captured a gold medal at the prestigious European Championships. In 2008, he became the youngest Irish Senior heavyweight champion at the tender age of 18, and he won a total of 13 Irish championships at various levels of competition.

“I have followed Con’s amateur career all the way through from the beginning and we had discussed the possibility of working together for some time now,” Hyde said. “Con is a physical specimen of a man as well as an extremely talented fighter. We are delighted to add him to our growing stable of top fighters.”

Legendary Irish sports pundit Jimmy Magee commented, “Con Sheehan is a big, modern day giant of a heavyweight who fights with the fluency of a middleweight.”

Hyde also manages present, past and future world champions such as World Boxing Association (WBA) Super & World Boxing Organization (WBO) super bantamweight champion and two-time Cuban Olympic gold medalist, Guillermo “The Jackal” Rigondeaux (15-0, 10 KOs), WBA Interim cruiserweight champion Youri “El Toro” Kalenga (21-1, 14 KOs), former WBO middleweight champion and current International Boxing Federation (IBF) No. 1 mandatory contender Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam (31-1, 18 KOs), three-time Cuban National Champion, super bantamweight Marcos Forstal (1-0, 1 KO), and world amateur champion Blagoy Naydenov.
