“Smitty is a one of the most recognized individuals in the sport of boxing. Through my work with the WBC Continental Americas Light Heavyweight Champion Prince Badi Ajamu, I had a conversation about the “In This Corner” television project he co-produces with Jon Hait. We met last Saturday in Las Vegas and agreed not only to go forward with respect to furthering Smitty’s career but also to develop “In This Corner” into a national property,” disclosed Dennis Bernstein, SCORE! Media’s Chairman from his Los Angeles office.
“I promised myself that in 2005 I would secure outside representation in order to continue my career on an upward progression. I had a couple of conversations with Dennis about SCORE! Media and when we sat down last week, I felt that it made sense to engage him from not only a representation standpoint but to help us secure sponsors and advertisers for “In This Corner,” Smith conveyed from his Las Vegas home. The weekly half hour show presently airs on the Empire Sports Network, Comcast SportsNet Chicago, America One Network and the Black Family Channel.
