LOS ANGELES - An international hit who has thrilled fans everywhere from his native Canada to his ancestral home of Italy, Phil "The Italian Sensation" Lo Greco will expand his reach even further in the coming months and years, as it was announced today that the unbeaten welterweight has signed a promotional agreement with Golden Boy Promotions who will co-promote him along with his Italian co-promoter OPI 2000.

"This is the greatest moment of my career so far and I promise Golden Boy Promotions that I will give them many more great moments before I'm done," said Lo Greco. "I am looking forward to fighting the best the division has to offer both here at home and around the world and my goal, just like any boxer's, is to win a world championship."

"We're excited to have Phil Lo Greco on our team and we believe he has what it takes to become another Golden Boy Promotions world champion," said Oscar de la Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions. "He has a fan-friendly style and he has proven to be a draw in Canada and Italy, but our goal is to bring him to the United States and I know he will be just as popular here."

"We're very happy to be working with Oscar de la Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions on Phil's career as they are the best in the business," said Salvatore Cherchi, President of OPI 2000.

Born in Toronto, but raised in Sicily until the age of nine, when he and his family returned to Canada, Phil Lo Greco (22-0, 12 KO's) began boxing at the age of 10, eventually winning a host of national titles before he enlisted in the Italian Army in 2003 at the age of 18. While in Italy, Lo Greco qualified for the 2004 Olympic team, but decided instead to pursue a professional career in Canada, which he began in 2006. Since then, his professional record has been perfect, and he has packed houses in Canada as well as Italy thanks to his talent, exciting style and charisma. In June of 2010, he won the vacant WBC international welterweight title with a ninth round knockout of Slawomir Ziemlewicz and the 27-year-old has since scored two more victories, setting up what promises to be the biggest year of his career in 2012.
