Golden Boy Promotions, the leading U.S.-based boxing promotional company and Germany’s top boxing promotional firm, Universum Box Promotions, today announced the formation of a strategic alliance between the two promoters. The newly formed relationship has three major goals including to capitalize on the global impact of the sport of boxing; give the fighters within the promotional stables of Golden Boy Promotions and Universum Box Promotions the opportunity to display their talents on a global platform rather than just a national platform; and focus on the joint development of venue, sponsorship and network relationships on an international level..
The two companies executed a co-promotional agreement which covers several World Champions including Junior Middleweight World Champion Sergeii Dzinziruk (36-0, 22 KO’s) and Interim Super Lightweight World Champion Marcos Maidana (26-1, 25 KO’s), who is the mandatory challenger to WBA Super Lightweight World Champion Amir Khan, as well as a handful of young rising stars such as highly-ranked middleweight Gennady Golovkin. Golovkin, who owns a perfect professional record of 17-0 with 14 KO’s, is one of boxing’s most promising prospects and is well known for his who’s who list of amateur conquests over the likes of Lucien Bute, Andre Dirrell, Andy Lee and Matt Korobov.
“I am very excited to start a new relationship with Klaus-Peter Kohl and Dietmar Poszwa of Universum Box Promotions,” stated Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar de la Hoya. “They have one of the best stable of fighters in the world, many of which are already World Champions and they have a keen eye for recognizing and developing talent. Together, we will be able to truly offer our fighters the opportunity to shine globally and become true champions of the world.”
Klaus-Peter Kohl, Chairman of Universum Box Promotions added, “Oscar is absolutely correct, we need to help these world champions and young fighters to become global attractions. I am convinced that with this alliance between Golden Boy Promotions and Universum Box Promotions, we will take a huge step in that direction.”
“Golden Boy Promotions and Universum Box Promotions are both young, energetic companies and both want to find ways to build on the global resurgence of the great sport of boxing,” stated Golden Boy Promotions Chief Executive Officer of Richard Schaefer. “I was very impressed with the creative minds of the Universum Box Promotions team and know that our existing partners, sponsors and venues are excited about this new relationship as it will open additional doors for their respective brands.”
Dietmar Poszwa, Chief Executive of Universum Box Promotions continued, “It was a pleasure to put the deal together with Oscar and Richard Schaefer. We immediately recognized the chemistry and synergies between our respective promotional teams and believe that the strategic impact of the development of venue relationships and global sponsorship deals will create additional and enhanced revenue sources. Most importantly, it will help to assist in increasing the international awareness of our fighters.”
The first fights for these jointly promoted fighters will be announced shortly. For more information on Golden Boy Promotions and Universum Box Promotions, please visit www.goldenboypromotions.com or www.boxing.de.
