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.
