In a remarkable feat of determination and skill, Eryk Majda, the talented bare knuckle boxer from Wee County, has recently added another accolade to his burgeoning career – the professional gloved boxing license. This significant milestone comes a mere six months after making the pivotal decision to turn professional.
Eryk Majda's initiation into the world of professional boxing began earlier this year, marked by an unforgettable debut against Martin Grainger. The bout not only showcased his raw talent but also earned him a lucrative contract with BKB promoters, propelling his career to new heights.
Venturing into the realm of gloved boxing, Eryk sets his sights on a transformative 2024. Speaking to Advertiser Sport, he expressed his enthusiasm for this new chapter, emphasizing that gloved boxing has been an integral part of his training and life.
"They’ve given me the green light to do bare knuckle boxing and also gloved boxing," Eryk explained. "I’ve done gloved boxing all my life, and all kinds of sparring and training are gloved so it won’t be harder or that. You need to be quicker to knock someone out, but I’m looking forward to it."
As he embraces this dual challenge, Eryk's next significant bout doubles as his first title challenge. On Saturday, January 27, he steps into the ring to face professional boxer Kevin Greenwood, an encounter that promises excitement and will be broadcast on Bein Sports for boxing enthusiasts worldwide.
Eryk's aspirations extend beyond this title clash as he envisions claiming the prestigious British super heavyweight bare knuckle boxing championship. With a meticulously planned calendar of matches for the upcoming year, Eryk aims to establish himself as a force to be reckoned with in both bare knuckle and gloved boxing arenas.
"I’m going to get my first title," Eryk affirmed. "It’ll happen in January, the fight is on. Kevin is a former professional gloved boxer, and I’ll be fighting him for the title."
The fighter's infectious energy and dedication have not gone unnoticed, attracting a wave of sponsors and fans. Eryk's active and motivated approach, coupled with his genuine love for the sport, creates an environment where success is not just a goal but a tangible outcome.
As he faces the challenges and anticipates the victories that lie ahead, Eryk Majda's journey unfolds as a testament to resilience, ambition, and the unwavering pursuit of excellence in the dynamic world of professional boxing.
