Adentan is a product of Repton Boxing Club, where he clocked up 16 wins from 20 amateur bouts, with 12 of his wins coming via KO. The 6ft 6″ powerhouse has also won super-heavyweight gold at the ‘King of the Ring’ tournament in Sweden, and reached the final of the 2019 London ABA, before suffering a cracked rib.
Adentan is a friend and regular training partner of Lawrence Okolie (current WBO cruiserweight champ), whilst sharing sparring sessions with experienced campaigners such as Dereck Chisora and Anthony Joshua. He is also no stranger to the world of entertainment and advertising, having appeared in the BBC drama Noughts and Crosses, as well as worldwide campaigns for Superdry, Nike and Aston Martin.
Recently the cruiserweight has turned pro, signed to perform for Frank Warren’s Queensberry promotions: “This is a big platform and opportunity for me… I am well suited to the pro ranks with my punch power and I am very explosive.”
