Boxing and Bitcoin, two worlds that are agreeably far apart. But today, fastbitcoins.com is proud to announce a sponsorship agreement with Callum “The One” Johnson (17-1 12 KOs) for his upcoming fight, bringing these worlds excitingly closer together.

The 33-year old British and Commonwealth champion, who also won gold at the Commonwealth games in 2010 whilst representing Scotland, will travel to New York to face Irish-American, Sean Monaghan (29-2 17 KOs) on Saturday March 9th. The fight will be held at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, and broadcasted live via Sky Sports in the UK and globally via the popular DAZN sports streaming network.

Talking of his reasons for signing the sponsorship deal, Danny Brewster, Managing Director of fastbitcoins.com said: “Callum comes from the same part of the world as I do, Boston, a small port town in the heart of Lincolnshire, England. From this town few get the opportunity to make a name for themselves on the world stage. I signed this sponsorship deal because Callum is a role model to the local community in Boston; he is a prime example of hard work and resilience against adversity manifesting into good things.”

Brewster adds: “As a fellow Bostonian, it is only right to play a part in supporting him on his quest to become a world champion. I am excited to witness the history he is going to make and also look forward to seeing the fastbitcoins.com insignia on his shorts and fight gear.”

Speaking of receiving the sponsorship, Callum Johnson, said: "I'm pleased to be sponsored and supported by FastBitcoins. Looking forward to the journey ahead with their backing."
