Gerard French’s knockout highlight reel has captured the attention of an interesting and now interested audience.
The former Clonard and Emerald BC fighter told Irish-boxing.com last month, that he had decided it was time to ditch the vest and start exploring pro options.
The 2018 Irish-Boxing.com Knockout of the Year nominee had managerial and coaching options at the time.
However, the sharing of a 52 second video packed with the middleweight’s knockouts has seen interest and as a result options increase.
Promoters have taken note and it now appears French has a decision to make.
“I have been in talks with managers and coaches. Talks have been ongoing for a few months now,” he told Belfast Live.
“And since I put that video up, a few other people have contacted me. I supposed it worked as a good promotional tactic.
“I believe I am suited to the pro game. In amateur boxing you wear 12oz gloves, and I was still knocking fellas out.
“With 10oz gloves, and with a bit more spite in my shots, I think I could do well. I suppose my left hook has become my trademark punch.”
