TORONTO (November 28, 2011) - Buxton Promotions and Hennessy Sports announced today that they are now co-promoting unbeaten Canadian light middleweight prospect Brandon "Bad Boy" Cook.
The 25-year-old Cook (4-0, 2 KOs), fighting out of Ajax, Ontario, is a very popular prizefighter who made his pro debut last February, taking a four-round decision from Francis Lafreniere. Three wins have followed, including a devastating first-round knockout of Jason Bernava last Friday night in New Brunswick.
"Brandon's certainly not afraid to mix it up," 29-year-old Tyler Buxton (Buxton Promotions) noted. "He's a boxer-puncher with an aggressive style that's helped him become one of the biggest ticket sellers in Greater Toronto.
"I've promoted him since his pro debut. We signed with Hennessy Sports in order to get Brandon more exposure and bigger fights. We've done shows with Hennessy Sports and know they can help us build Brandon's fan-base, not only in Canada, but internationally as well."
The all-action Cook is an aggressive, come-straight-ahead fighter who International Boxing Hall of Fame nominee announcer Al Bernstein, who called Cook's last fight from ringside, referred to as a bigger version of WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios.
Other members of the Hennessy Sports Canada stable include NABA super featherweight champion and that organization's 2011 Fighter of the year, Logan Cotton McGuinness, WBC Silver welterweight titlist welterweight Victor Lupo and unbeaten prospects Tyler Asselstine, Samuel Vargas and Lionell "Lonnie B" Thompson.
