LOS ANGELES, December 27 – Throughout the years, several British superstars, including Amir “King” Khan, Ricky “Hitman” Hatton and David “Hayemaker” Haye, have fought under the Golden Boy Promotions banner. Today, the Los Angeles-based promoter is pleased to announce the signing of a promotional agreement with a young man it believes will follow in his countrymen’s footsteps, 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist for Great Britain, Anthony Ogogo.

“I am delighted to be signing with the premier promoter in boxing, Golden Boy Promotions,” said Ogogo. “So many great fighters have come before me at Golden Boy and in the coming years I hope to live up to the standard they’ve set. I can’t wait to get started.”

“2012 has been without doubt one of the greatest years of my life,” continued Ogogo. “To represent my country at a home Games was an incredible experience and the bronze medal I won will always be close to my heart. Following the Olympics I’ve been looking to the future and considering a number of options, and feel that the time is now right to turn professional with Golden Boy.”

“Anthony Ogogo has everything you look for in a boxer,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “He can fight, he has style and charisma and he has amazing crossover potential. I have no doubt that Anthony has the skills in the ring and the personality outside of it to make him a global boxing star. We are proud to have him on our team and this is just the first step in our growing commitment to British boxing.”

A talented soccer player who played for Norwich City FC when he was younger, Lowestoft, England’s Anthony Ogogo found his true love in the ring where he has been competing since the age of 12. After winning a Junior Olympic Gold medal and Silver medals at the Commonwealth Games and European Championships, Ogogo earned a place on Great Britain’s 2012 Olympic team. In London this past summer, Ogogo beat representatives from the Dominican Republic, Ukraine and Germany to win a Bronze Medal, thrilling his fans from throughout the United Kingdom. Outside the ring, the 24-year-old Ogogo is a former model and was also a cast member of the 2008 hit reality show, “Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack.”

Congratulations Floyd Mayweather, Jr. for all your success with your Foundation in 2012.

Cohen Inks Undefeated Adam Trupish

Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions is proud to announce the signing of undefeated Adam “A-Bomb” Trupish (11-0, 8 KOs) to a promotional contract.

Trupish, from Windsor, Ontario, Canada, is a two-time Olympian and was ranked fifth in the world after the 2007 World Amateur Boxing Championships. He represented Canada at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, and was the only Canadian boxer (in any weight class) to qualify for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

As a professional, Trupish has already enjoyed impressive success. In just 11 fights, he has taken the Canadian middleweight and super middleweight championships and also won and successfully defended the NABA Light Middleweight title.

Along the way, Trupish has scored stoppages over long-time Canadian Middleweight Champion Larry Sharpe (25-8), Brazil’s dangerous Rogerio Pereira (16-1) and useful Detroit veteran Darryl Cunningham (25-3).

Trupish recently relocated to Las Vegas, where he trains with former world champion and elite-level trainer Eddie Mustafa Muhammad at Muhammad’s Hit Factory gym. It was Muhammad who brought Trupish to Cohen’s attention.

“Eddie came to me with the idea of working with Adam because he’s very bright and he can really punch. Plus he has that strong amateur pedigree. So, I went to Vegas and had a look and I was very impressed. I’m very excited to start working with Adam.”

A master at finding boxing’s hidden gems, Cohen says even though Trupish is at a relatively advanced age for a prospect, his experience level will allow him to step over the normally required developmental years of his pro career.

“Adam has had more fights at an international, elite level than most fighters ever have, so he doesn’t need 30 fights before taking steps up. He’s so much more advanced than the average new professional. It won’t be long before he’s in a world championship fight.”
