Cheavon Clarke signed a long-term promotional deal with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing in January 2022 and enjoyed a perfect first year as a professional with four fights and four wins by way of stoppage.
Born and raised in rural Jamaica, Clarke moved to England at the age of 11 where he started boxing to keep fit – and it wasn’t long before he began to make his mark on the amateur scene, winning novice competitions across the country.
Clarke enrolled onto GB Boxing in 2017, winning a silver medal at the European Championships in the Ukraine that year before earning bronze in the men’s Heavyweight category a year later at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.
Trained by Sam Mullings at Churchill’s Boxing Club in South London, Clarke was selected to represent Team GB at the Tokyo Olympic Games last summer but was defeated at the last 16 stage by Brazil’s Abner Teixeira.
Clarke ended his maiden year as a pro by stopping Jose Gregorio Ulrich on his feet with a brutal uppercut on the undercard of Dillian Whyte-Jermaine Franklin in November 2022.
