Jordan Shimmell has joined the ever growing list of fighters signing on with Al Haymon. Haymon is now contracted to act as an advisor to the undefeated cruiserweight from the Grand Rapids area according to a press release by Team Shimmell. Former national amateur champion Shimmell has made rapid strides since turning pro two years ago in compiling a 15-0, 13 KO’s mark, winning the USBO title, and securing a current number two ranking in the United States. According to Shimmell’s team, after reviewing several other offers, it was decided to sign with Haymon as the most logical next step in advancing his career.
