3KingsBoxing has learned IBF Super-Bantamweight titlist TJ Doheny has inked a promotional deal with Matchroom Boxing USA and will make his first title defense on January 18th at the Hulu Center at Madison Square Garden. The bout will be aired on DAZN streaming service.

Upon signing with Matchroom, Doheny (20,0, 14 KO’s) stated “I am really excited to getting the ball rolling with my title defense on January 18 at Madison Square Garden. “I believe with Matchroom Boxing and my management team at MTK Global I have the perfect blend to hel me achieve my ultimate goals in the sport of boxing… This fight will give me the momentum I need going into a really big year.”

Doheny captured the IBF title on August 16, 2018 defeating Ryosuke Iwasa by unanimous decision in Tokyo. He has been inactive since largely due a cut and facial bruising suffered during the win over Iwasa.

Eddie Hearn, president of Matchroom promotions is ecstatic with the signing of Doheny. “I’m delighted to welcome TJ to the seam said Hearn. “TJ is always in great fights and he is coming off of a huge win in Japan to capture the title. Hearn not only stated that Doheny will make his first defense at MSG on January 18th, he made it clear that if successful, he intends on attempting to make a unification bout between Doheny and current WBA Super-Bantamweight champion Danny Roman in the spring.
