Boxing promoters Bobby Hitz of Hitz Boxing and Frank “Muggs” Mugnolo of Round 3 Productions announced that they have signed dynamic Chicago super middleweight Donovan “Don Da Bomb” George (24-4-2, 21 KOs) to a promotional contract. When George won his first Golden Gloves championship it was Hitz who presented him with the trophy.
“I have known Donovan since he was a kid and I am so excited about signing him. He is a one of the most promising super middleweight prospects,” said Hitz. “His career has come full circle, I remember handing him his first Golden Gloves trophy and now he is a member of the Hitz team. Muggs and I have big plans for him.”
George, who leads “Team Boom”, is expected to make his Hitz/Round 3 debut in early March. His “Team Boom” stablemate, super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (12-0, 9 KOs), is also on the Hitz roster.
“Since I started boxing Bobby has been a huge part of my life, a mentor. I cannot wait to take the ring with Bobby and Muggs backing me. I am ready to dominate,” said George. “Hollywood and I are ready to rule the supper middleweight division, not just in Chicago, but nationwide.”
Hitz Boxing and Round 3 Productions recently began working together at the end of 2013.
“I am glad Bobby and I are coming together to sign a fighter of Donovan’s caliber,” said Mugnolo. “Stay tuned we have more exciting plans in the works.”
