STEFY Bull insists Doncaster boxing is in good hands after signing a five-year deal with the Dome for exclusive rights to promote shows at the venue.

The former Conisbrough pro inked the deal which will see him organise six fight nights per year at the Dome.

The agreement will prevent other small hall promoters putting on shows there until 2017.

And Bull believes the deal will bring a successful future for boxing in the town.

He said: “I’ve got the best interests of Doncaster boxing at heart.

“I’ve got 19 fighters on my books now and the vast majority are from this area.

“To have them fighting regularly, in front of a hometown crowd is in the best interests of their development.

“It’ll give Doncaster boxing fans the best deal as well because they’re going to see their own fighters boxing on a regular basis.

“We’ve proven already with our last two shows that we’re all about promoting exciting fights and fans appreciate that.”

Bull is confident as his operation grows, he will be able to attract television for his shows.

He said: “The two shows I’ve put on already would stand up against any others you’ll see in terms of excitement

“I have no lofty aspirations to become a big time promoter, putting shows on all over the country.

“My business and my passion is managing and training my fighters.

“I want to do what’s best for the lads and I think that is to have them fighting in their home town and keeping Doncaster boxing alive.”

The deal will not block big name promoters with television deals such as Frank Maloney who has promoted Jamie McDonnell’s fights at the Dome since he won the British bantamweight title.
