Rotherham Super-Welterweight Junaid Bostan signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Eddie Hearn as one of Matchroom Boxing’s later additions of 2022.
The 5-0 prospect is trained under the guidance of Grant Smith at the Steel City Gym alongside Dalton Smith and Sunny Edwards.
Boston is a double national champion and, before teaming up with Smith at the age of 12, spent his early boxing years under the late Brendan Ingle.
Boston stopped his first five opponents after putting down Peter Kramer on the undercard of Leigh Wood-Mauricio Lara in Nottingham in February 2023.
After a series of entertaining displays, Star Boy earned a slot on the main DAZN broadcast for the first time in support to stablemate Dalton Smith in July. Bostan was taken the distance for the first time as a professional, but banked eight valuable rounds against 10-0-1 Midlands Area champion Ryan Amos.
Bostan returned to knockout ways in his very next bout, stopping Corey McCulloch in the sixth round of their contest to land himself on the undercard of Sunny Edwards-Jesse Rodriguez in America on December 16.
