Ryan Martin Signs Promotional Deal With 50 Cent

NEW YORK - 50 Cent’s SMS promotions announced today the signing of yet another fantastic athlete. Ryan Martin, an amateur standout from Chattanooga, TN, is scheduled to make his professional debut under the tutelage of boxing coach Joe Delguyd, known for training light welterweight Craig Weber and featherweight Daniel Maldonado for the IBA World Championship. Martin’s first bout is set on September 16th at the Resorts World Casino NYC in New York.

“There will be a lot of talent at Big Apple Boxing. Ryan has what it takes to be successful. At only 20 years old he shows dedication and determination that will land him on top,” Commented 50 Cent

Martin campaigned in the 132lb and 141lb Men’s Open Division. He was the number one ranked lightweight in 2010 and an Olympic hopeful for the state of Tennessee. However he lost a close decision in the 2012 Olympic qualifier to undefeated prospect Robert Easter. Andy Smith of the Westside Boxing Club was his head amateur coach. As his Olympic aspirations came to a halt he made the decision to turn professional and felt that SMS Promotions was the perfect home.

“50 Cent told me he’d make me a star, he has the trust of my manager, Tim VanNewhouse and I know we have a good team in place,” stated Martin. With the many platforms he can provide, I know I’ll be on a world stage. To be among the few signed by him is very humbling to say the least. I’m very pleased and I’m working hard everyday for my pro debut”.

Martin is a 12 time National Champion and a huge fan favorite in the southern part of the country. With over 200 amateur bouts and among many other accolades he is ready to take the next leap in his career.

“Ryan has all the tools physically and the character that will allow him to become a world champion, as well as a star that boxing so desperately needs,” stated Delguyd

The sad part is that 50 has the potential to be one of the best promoters out there, but he's not focused nor should he be because I'm sure he makes more $$$ from his other ventures than he does…
