Shannon Courtenay says it will be a dream to make her professional debut on a televised world title fight card in London.

The Abbots Langley boxer will fight on a stacked March 23 card at the Copper Box Arena in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Courtenay said: “I’m very excited and just cannot wait to make my debut now. When Eddie Hearn said he wanted me to fight on the show I was buzzing and I just hope Watford comes out to support me.

“It’s crazy to have my pro debut on a world title undercard on Sky Sports. It’s any boxer’s dream and I’m over the moon.

“I knew eventually I would be on Sky but I didn’t know it would be so soon. I need to make sure I put on a clinical show.”

Courtenay is convinced she has assembled a “dream team” in her corner with Eddie Hearn acting as her promoter and a training team of Adam Booth, who helped David Haye and George Groves to success on the world stage, and Charlie Beatt.

The 2015 Haringey Box Cup gold medalist said: “Eddie is the main man and everyone wants to be with him. If you could pick any promoter in the world you would choose him and I think it will be a good partnership.

“I’ve been chatting to Eddie for a couple of years about turning pro and he said he’d keep an eye on me. He’s been as a good as his word and stayed in touch with me. I know people boo him when he gets in the ring at boxing promotions but he is a really good guy.”

Courtenay added: “I have the dream team. To have Adam Booth as my manager, be trained by him and Charlie Beatt and Eddie as my promoter, it doesn’t get any better than that. It’s any boxer’s dream.

“I have everything in place now in terms of a team and it’s up to me to become a world champion.”

The ‘Baby Face Assassin’ was thrust into the spotlight yesterday with her first press conference to promote the fight night which features world champion Charlie Edwards and unbeaten boxers Joshua Buatsi and Lawrence Okolie.

But she embraced the publicity and insists she is relishing the additional coverage, with the cameras on her, in the build-up to her pro debut.

Courtenay said: “I absolutely loved it. I was buzzing. I don’t really get that nervous and actually embrace pressure.”

As an amateur, Courtenay fought at featherweight but the boxer has been getting smaller, partly due to her intense training which started full time in September, meaning she is likely to fight at either bantamweight or super bantamweight in March.

Courtenay, who studies videos of legendary boxers Roberto Duran and Sugar Ray Leonard, wants her skills in the ring to do the talking on fight night at the Copper Box Arena.

“I don’t want to go rushing in looking for the knockout,” she said. “I can impress with my skills and I want to enjoy it because you only get one debut.

“People have been saying I’m too pretty to be a boxer but come fight night I’m going to be an animal in the ring.”
