An undefeated Hamilton super lightweight boxer has signed on with United Promotions on a multi-year promotional contract.

Bradley ‘The Truth’ Wilcox (11-0, 6 KO), part of Hamilton’s storied Wilcox boxing family, made his professional debut in 2017 with a second-round knockout of Arturo Garcia in Niagara Falls and has topped both Chile’s Carlos Diaz and Canadian Larone Whyte since returning to the ring in 2022 after a three-year hiatus.

“Bradley is one of the best super lightweights in the country and has a large fan base that supports him from Hamilton,” said United Promotions president Tyler Buxton. “He’s a great signing for United and fans can expect Bradley to make big moves this year.”

The 29-year-old Wilcox is excited to return to regular action — and ready to earn his place at the championship table.

“I look forward to being active again, and being with a promoter who can keep me active and has a vision for the future,” said Wilcox. “Tyler and United have had an idea of their future with the casinos for a long time and he’s executing on that vision now — it will be nice to be part of that team.”

Wilcox has three brothers who also fight professionally and all four were on the card last November 4 in Brantford.

For the record, Bradley and Steve Wilcox recorded fourth-round TKOs on the evening, while Spencer won by unanimous decision and Jessie fought to a split decision draw.

United’s roster already includes four reigning IBO continental champions, a former Olympian and a former WBO World Title Challenger.

The next United boxing card is March 2 at Woodbine Casino in Toronto, headlined by an IBF International Super Welterweight title match between unbeaten Sukhdeep Singh Bhatti of Ajax (17-0) and tough Argentinian fighter Gino Natalio Godoy (30-3).
