Cameron Vuong Hopes For August /Sept Debut
Cameron Vuong has signed a promotional deal with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing, taking the next big step in his career.
In an interview with NoSmokeSport, Cameron Vuong reflected on his impressive amateur career, having recently clinched victories at both the Tri-Nations and the Elite ABAs. His exceptional performance in these championships led to a significant turning point in his life. While he had initially considered joining Team GB, the allure of professional boxing proved irresistible. His decision to turn professional, he says, was made in consultation with his family, friends, and coaches.
The transition to professional boxing was facilitated by manager Sam Jones, with whom Cameron Vuong connected after his senior elite final. The swift progression of events saw Vuong signing with Matchroom Boxing within days. Vuong credits Sam Jones with fast-tracking his professional debut and expressed immense gratitude for his efforts.
Choosing Matchroom Boxing was a ‘no-brainer’ for Vuong, who describes it as the biggest platform in the world. Signing with Eddie and Matchroom Boxing has been a long-cherished dream for Vuong, a dream he is proud to have fulfilled.
Vuong is currently in the process of acquiring his professional boxing license. He mentioned he hopes his professional debut will take place in late August or early September. In terms of activity, Vuong aims to have two or three fights this year, and then five fights in his first full year as a professional.
Vuong’s vision for his career is clear. He has no intention of rushing his progress, recognizing that he has much to learn in the professional boxing arena. His aspirations include winning the British title, the European title, and the Commonwealth title before setting his sights on world titles. With an unwavering belief in his potential, Vuong states unequivocally, “I wouldn’t be in the sport if I didn’t think I could be world champion.”
