Adam Etches (born 26 January 1991) is a British professional boxer who fights at middleweight.

Starting out and amateur career[edit]

Etches started out as a kickboxer and won various titles and trophies but decided to take up boxing as it was a more viable career option for him.[1]

Etches quickly progressed in the unpaid side of the sport and reached the semi-finals of the 2009 Novice Amateur Boxing Association Championships.[2] However, when he was defeated he was asked by Hatton Promotions Head of Boxing Richard Poxon to turn professional.

Professional career[edit]

Adam made his professional debut at the De Vere Whites Hotel in Bolton and stopped Lester Walsh in two rounds.

Since then he's added another four names to his perfect record and is hoping that promoter Ricky Hatton will reward him with his first title opportunity in 2012.[3]

He suffered his first defeat on 28 March 2015 to Sergey Khomitsky via 4th round knockout, losing the IBF international Middleweight Championship.
