Probellum is delighted to announce the signings of highly-rated twin brothers Pat and Luke McCormack as they turn professional.

“We’re ecstatic to announce our plans to turn professional by signing with Probellum,” said Pat and Luke McCormack. “We are proud of what we achieved as amateurs, but now is the time to kick on and take our careers to the next level in the paid ranks.
“After our conversations with Probellum it was clear that they were the very best option for us, and we have full confidence that they will take us to the very top as we look to achieve our dreams of winning world titles.”
“It is a true honor to announce the signings of Pat and Luke McCormack,” said Richard Schaefer, President of Probellum. “They were some of the most sought-after fighters coming out of the Olympics, so to have them join Probellum is a massive statement of intent.
“We have an event in the North East of England on December 18 with some of the best talent from that area, and we’re certain that Pat and Luke can become the next big stars from that region.”
