Aberdeen based businessman Russell Jaques has launched The Professional Boxing Council to bring prestige titles back into boxing.
With National and International titles up for grabs, professional boxers have a great opportunity to gain success whilst being ranked automatically with other affiliations.
Having agreed with The British and Irish Boxing Authority (BIBA) to have their licensed fighters challenge for PBC titles should their records match that of PBC demands.
The first titles went up for grabs on Saturday the 19th August at Ayr Town Hall. The venue was packed for George Mcilroy and Sammy Hill to walk away with their International and Celtic Silver Title.
The organisation has fights lined up in Aberdeen, Belfast, Liverpool, Malta and Ghana before the end of the year.
Russell Jaques said, “The last few months have been very exciting. Lots of hard work has been put in. Seeing the belts in the flesh and seeing them challenged for on Saturday was a dream come true. I chose a local Aberdeen company to make our Championship gloves “Alba Combat Equipment” this was the first time to see them in action as well. I couldn’t have asked for a better show for the PBC belts to make their debut. Assassin Boxing Promotions and Management along with BIBA did a fantastic job. The Championship Bouts were first class. Well matched and crowd pleasers. I’m delighted and very excited for what the future holds.”
