Hampstead middleweight Robbie Chapman will make his debut in the professional ranks later this month.

The 24-year-old will make his bow on a Goodwin promotion at the iconic York Hall on May 19.

Chapman enjoyed a solid amateur career, which began at the St Pancras club in Kentish Town, before moving to IQ Neasden.

Known as ‘The Caretaker’, Chapman’s nickname stems from his job as a caretaker at Regent High School in Kings Cross.

The middleweight will hope he can take care of business as he steps into the ring against Liam Griffiths this month.

Griffiths’ record makes for interesting reading, with the 31-year-old having amassed five wins, 77 losses and one draw since turning pro in 2011.

Trained by Xavier Miller at the IQ Neasden club, Chapman will hope to avoid becoming Griffiths’ sixth victim as he looks for a winning start to life in the paid ranks as a pro.
