            “We are very excited. Seanie has fought on some Top Rank-promoted boxing events and everyone with the company is very professional. Top Rank is the No. 1 promoter in the world,” said P.J. Kavanagh, Monaghan’s manager.  “Seanie wants to fight for the world title and we think being with Top Rank will help us get there.  The sky’s the limit for Seanie. We are moving forward with Top Rank.”


            “We are delighted that Seanie has decided to be promoted by Top Rank. He is a fan-friendly fighter who has a large and loyal fan base,” said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum.  “We expect to showcase his talents on the televised undercard of the much anticipated Juan Manuel Márquez vs. Timothy Bradley pay-per-event on October 12 at the Thomas and Mack in Las Vegas.”


            “Top Rank has had the pleasure of working with Seanie and his team on some of our recent high-profile shows in New York.  He has a loyal and rabid fan base that brings excitement to our events. We look forward to building on that momentum,” said Carl Moretti, Top Rank’s Vice President, Boxing Operations.  “Seanie’s team has done a terrific job in developing him as an attraction and as a top-light heavyweight prospect. Top Rank’s goal will be to bring him to the next level nationally and internationally as well as secure a world title opportunity.”
