STAR Boxing has signed unbeaten IBO super middleweight champion Zac Dunn to an exclusive promotional contract, as per an announcement by Star Boxing president Joe DeGuardia.
The Melburnian will defend his IBO super middleweight title on October 24th at The Paramount in Huntington, New York, in the next installment of Star Boxing’s Rockin’ Fights series.
Rated inside the top ten by the WBC, the big-punching Dunn has reeled off 18 professional victories without defeat, including 15 by way of knockout.
Dunn, 24, who has fought exclusively out of Melbourne as a professional will be making his US debut.
While the particulars of the deal are yet to be announced, it appears likely that Dunn will be fighting in the US for the immediate future, as the promotional pact has been touted as long-term.
“Zac Dunn is a very exciting fighter,” said DeGuardia in a press release. “I am pleased we have signed him to a long-term promotional deal and I know the fans at the Paramount will love him.”
“We believe he will be a matinee idol here, just as he is in Australia.”
During a storied amateur career, Dunn scored 152 victories in 170 fights, showcasing his talents all over the world.
Dunn last fought in June – surviving the first knockdown of his professional career – to outpoint Ukrainian veteran Max Bursak at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.
Star Boxing boasts several notable boxers on their promotional roster, including former world champions Chris Algieri, Demetrius Andrade and Joshua Clottey.
