Miyo Yoshida Signs with NYC Attorney and Boxing Manager Keith Sullivan

03/04/2024 - 1 comment

Miyo Yoshida, the International Boxing Federation (IBF) Bantamweight World Champion with a record of 17-4, has teamed up with Keith Sullivan, a lawyer from New York known for his sharp legal mind. At 35, Yoshida’s a force to be reckoned with, having won the World Boxing Organization (WBO) Super Flyweight title not once, but twice. Hailing from Japan and now calling Manhattan home, she’s no stranger to the gritty training sessions at Brooklyn’s Gleason’s Gym, thanks to DiBella Entertainment’s backing.

Yoshida stands tall among Japan’s 23 female world champions, and she’s one of the elite six to have conquered titles across multiple divisions. She’s stoked about having Sullivan in her corner, confident that his managerial skills will take her career to new heights. Sullivan, on his part, is all praises for Yoshida, admiring her resilience and professionalism, especially her bounce-back from a tough loss to claim another world title as a single mom in a new country.

Yoshida’s recent masterclass in San Francisco, where she stepped in for Avril Mathie on short notice and schooled Ebanie Bridges to claim the IBF bantamweight title, is just the latest feather in her cap. She sees this victory as a career-defining moment and is hungry for more.

As a single mother and a beacon of inspiration back in Japan, Yoshida’s story goes beyond the ring. Her determination and success have earned her the 2023 Most Inspirational Female Fighter award from The Ring magazine. She’s on a mission to inspire and pave the way for the next generation of female boxers, especially in the U.S., where she believes the sport offers more diversity and support.

Yoshida’s journey from kickboxing in Kagoshima to dominating the boxing world is nothing short of remarkable. Having taken a break to raise her daughter, she returned to the sport at 28 and has been making waves ever since. Alongside Yoshida, Sullivan’s roster includes rising stars like Brooklyn heavyweight Pryce Taylor, amateur standout Nisa Rodriguez, and WBA Continental Champion Paddy Donovan.
