Golden Boy Promotions Prepare To Enter The UK Market

Golden Boy Promotions plans to apply for a licence to promote fights in Great Britain. The company, which promotes British star Amir Khan and worked in the past with David Haye and Ricky Hatton, intends to sign up some of the fighters who boxed for the host nation at the London Olympics.

Golden Boy chief executive Richard Schaefer told The Times: "We want to sign up some of those fighters who represented Britain at the Olympics. It would not necessarily be those who won medals and we want those fighters with the right talent and charisma.

"I will be spending a lot of time in the UK and I would personally take these fighters under my wing and nurture them, which is something I have not done before.

"The idea will be to showcase them here in the US as well and we would put on four fights a year in the UK with them and four in the US. We would hope to stage our first show in the UK in the second quarter of 2013."

Olympic Bronze medal winner Anthony Ogogo spoke with several papers and denied published reports that he already agreed to be a part of Golden Boy's run in the UK. The boxer stated that no decision has been made regarding a turn to the pro ranks.

“Nothing has been decided yet and the stories that have been leaked are just rumors,” said Ogogo to EADT Suffolk Magazine.

Good for Golden Boy. Warren Is Clueless on how to make a Superstar...Plus Warren rarely Wants his fighters fighting in the U.S. Thankfuly UK has Eddie Hearns. Good opportunity For UK Fighters to get World Recognition.

I hate most British boxers but our Olympic team was the best out of all of them.. was their a bias.. yes.. but when hasn't there been in boxing, both amateur and professional? Anyways, I'm stoked to see Anthony Joshua…

Surprised it hasn't happened sooner to be honest. Good money to be made and they will have the pick of some good prospects. Will hopefully make Frank Warren rise his game also.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;12831604]:lol1: Well, your Olympic team at least was pretty good.[/QUOTE] TBH I felt there was clear bias for us, not that I complained during the Olympics. Probably because I wanted the medals to pile up too, but in pro boxing…
