Gavin McDonnell and Andy Townend have committed their futures to manager Stefy Bull by signing new three year deals.

British super bantamweight champion McDonnell and Central Area super featherweight king Townend have both been under Bull’s guidance since the start of their professional careers.

And Conisbrough’s former fighter is delighted to have been given the nod by both men for the foreseeable future.

“There is plenty of talk about loyalty in boxing but when you’re actually on the receiving end of some, it means a lot,” Bull said.

“I’m delighted that both lads are pleased with the job I’ve done with them so far.

“This is only the beginning. Both have got bags of potential to go further.

“Gav’s success speaks for itself and I’m so proud to continue to be managing a British champion.”

Dunscroft’s McDonnell is set to defend his British title against Jazza Dickens in Hull on October 25 but is also close to a European title fight, sitting second in the rankings.

Barnsley’s Wakefield exile Townend will defend his Central Area crown against Lee Connelly on September 6 at the Dome.
