Brisbane boxer Huni joins Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom stable

Hunis manager Mick Francis told AAP the deal with Matchroom was a “dream come true”.

“This opportunity to compete with Matchroom on a global platform opens so many more doors,” he said.

“One of the hardest things in recent years with Justis has been attracting good opponents to Australia because it costs an absolute fortune.

“Eddie gives us the opportunity to fight on many high profile maps around the world and we can go to them.

“There isn’t a heavyweight in the world that we wouldn’t jump into the ring with right now.”

Francis said there was a chance Hearn could put up an impressive card in Brisbane in April.


“And we’d be fighting (Australian heavyweight) Demsey McKean right away on that card,” he said.

Huni’s father and trainer Rocki said there was no intention at this time of moving abroad to be closer to the fights and that the team will continue to attend camps in places like California.

“We’re lucky that Eddie put money aside so we can do camp wherever we want. We can bring rafters or go to them,” he said.

“I freaked out a bit when Eddie told Mick he’s been after Justis since 2019. Knowing that was tremendous and made the transition easy. This is a promoter who has been following Justis for a while.

“To be in this position, we’re just blessed.”

Justis said he still has “a great relationship” with Lonergan.

“I’m grateful for everything Dean has done for me and my family,” he said.

“There are no hard feelings. It’s a business and he knows that better than anyone.” Brisbane boxer Huni joins Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom stable
