LOS ANGELES - A member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame and one of the most respected figures in the sport, legendary matchmaker Don Chargin is back with the Golden Boy Promotions team, which is pleased to announce that it has retained his services and brought him back home.
"Don is not just a legend of boxing, but a good friend and loyal advisor for years," said Oscar De La Hoya, President and founder of Golden Boy Promotions. "I'm excited to have him on board again, and together we're going to deliver the best fights to the fans for years to come."
"I'm happy to be back with Golden Boy Promotions, and hearing Oscar's commitment to putting on great fights and signing top-notch talent has me excited to get back to work here," said Chargin.
