Promoter Art Pelullo/Banner Promotions has signed jr. lightweight prospect Antonio Davis to a co-promotional contract. Brian Young/Prize Fight Boxing is Antonio’s co-promoter.
Davis, now 19-1, with 9 knockouts, of Atlanta Georgia, has won 15 fights in a row since his only loss in February, 2003. A 3 ½ -year pro, he is the current NABO jr. lightweight champion, and ranked No. 4 by the WBO.
Co-promoter Brian Young said, “We’ve been working with Antonio for the last three years. He’s a classic boxer-puncher, and he’s 8-0 with us.
“We’re very pleased to be doing business with Artie. He’s one of the hardest workers in the business, and we’ve always had a successful relationship in whatever we’ve done together. He’s an honest guy, and all of us at Prize Fight are excited to be partnering with him.”
Art Pelullo said, “Brian Young and his brother Russ are first-class people, and they’ve done an outstanding job in developing Antonio Davis’s career. I think Prize Fight Boxing is the leading young promoter in the South, and I’m excited about working with them and Antonio Davis.”
