Frank Maloney Boxing: Hill Is Going To The Top

Frank Maloney believes he has discovered another middleweight sensation in Tony Hill.

The Southampton prospect is unbeaten in two contests, but the promoter believes he has unearthed another exciting talent.

Hill, 23, stopped Stuart Barr on his debut in September and last Friday showed his huge potential once again outpointing Matt Scriven.

Hill joins a stable bursting at the seams with talent in the middleweight divisions that includes his former England amateur team-mate Tony Jeffries, Travis Dickinson and George Groves - who is co-promoted by Maloney.

Southpaw Hill is former Junior ABA champion and Maloney rates him as highly as James DeGale, who beat him in NABC championships six years ago.

Maloney said: "I am amazed that nobody noticed him before because he could be the hidden diamond in British boxing.

"In both of his professional fights I have been taken aback at how natural and relaxed Tony looks.

"He reminds of John Conteh and a very good fighter I boxed with at Lynn ABC Billy Knight who was top class and would have been a superstar in this era.

"In a year to 18 months I would match him against DeGale in a heartbeat. The only reason I won't do it now is because DeGale has been a pro longer."

As Hill gets more exposure, Maloney believes his latest protégé's popularity will swell. For his fight with Scriven he sold 150 tickets even though his fans had to tackle a 300 mile round trip.

Maloney added: "Tony has charm, looks and charisma. He also has a nice family who will keep his feet firmly on the ground." His next appearance is on December 11th on the undercard of Haskins v Broadhurst.
