Adams launches his professional career on promoter Mickey Helliet’s
show at the York Hall in Bethnal Green on Saturday, November 29 – and takes inspiration
Yarde turned professional with only a handful of amateur bouts
behind him, but the East Ender climbed into world-title contention and went so close
to dethroning WBO light-heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev.
Adams has served his apprenticeship in the unlicensed ring
and the 26 year old said: “I want to get the same heights as Joshua Buatsi and
Anthony Yarde. They have taken different routes.
“Buatsi went to the Olympics, while Yarde had limited
amateur experience, but has shown that if you put the hard work in and believe
in yourself, you can get there.
“Yarde has tremendous against Kovalev and can still be a
world champion. He’s shown what’s possible for fighters who don’t have great
amateur careers behind them.”
Adams says he’s planning to give fight fans more nights to remember
in his professional career after thrilling viewers of the Queensbury Boxing
His up-and-down battle with Max Chart was the best seen in
the league last year and Adams said: “I want to excite the crowds.
“I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself, but I
always go in there hoping to put on a show for the fans. I want to be known as
an entertaining fighter.”
Adams was due to make his professional debut last month. “I
had an injury,” he said, “and made the decision to wait. I want to be at my
best for my supporters when I fight.”
