Sheffield's Kamikaze Kid Law H'too becomes JE Promotions' latest signing.

23-year-old Burmese boxer, Law H'too, from Manor in Sheffield signed terms with manager Joe Elfidh earlier this week and plans to make his pro bow on a JE Promotions card next March in Worksop.

Known as the 'Kamikaze Kid', H'too boxed as an amateur from the age of 18, winning over half of his bouts. He originally trained with Chris Smedley and Steve Barnes at Lower Manor Boxing Club.

The British Boxing Board of Control passed H'too for a boxing licence after an assessment at the Harrogate ABC in North Yorkshire just a few weeks back.

Born in Burma, he moved to Thailand when just a few months old, finally settling in Sheffield in 2007. The whole H'too family relocated from Thailand to Yorkshire as refugees.

The featherweight prospect trains with Steve Barnes at the Lower Manor Boxing Club, alongside Steve Barnes Jnr and Hassan Ahmed.

He explained how he signed with Joe Elfidh, "My friend, Hassan Ahmed, recently signed with Joe so I came along afterwards.

"I train with Hassan, Haroon Karim and a few other pros in the Manor Gym; [Commonwealth middleweight champion] Liam Cameron used to train with us, but he moved clubs with Chris Smedley recently."

The confident switch-hitter spoke excitedly of his plans as a pro, "I want to be the best, the plan is to go all the way.

"My debut will be at the North Notts Arena in Worksop around March time next year. I've got a good following, even got friends from Norway and Sweden that want to come over to watch me. It's a big community where I live in Sheffield so there's a lot of people that want to watch me."
