The Golden Contract offers a lucrative opportunity for fighters to transform their careers, but how will Tuesday’s draw add a twist to the innovative event?
Current champions, unbeaten prospects, and enigmatic challengers have already confirmed their entry in The Golden Contract, organised by MTK Global in association with Matchroom Boxing, which kicks off with the featherweight quarter-finals at London’s iconic York Hall on October 4, live on Sky Sports.
Eight fighters will compete at featherweight, super-lightweight and light-heavyweight, with the three divisional winners earning a two-year, five-fight deal with six-figure purses for each fight guaranteed.
Knockout bonuses are also on offer and the 126lb curtain-raiser features current British champion Ryan Walsh, Commonwealth king Leigh Wood, former Lonsdale belt holder Jazza Dickens, Davey Oliver Joyce, Tyrone McCullagh, Cuban Hairon Socarras, Mexico’s Carlos Araujo and Spaniard Carlos Ramos.
