Probellum has added another major boxing force to its co-promotional stable – after signing an agreement with Venezuela’s Moron Boxing.
Operated by Rafael Moron, the company have held events in Venezuela over 20 years, featuring the greatest fighters that the country has to offer.
They have already held four events in 2021, with the most recent taking place this past weekend, where undefeated Jose Aray retained his Venezuelan featherweight title thanks to a victory over Alfonso Perez.
Moron Boxing is seen as one of the biggest promoters in South America, and their events have taken place in all areas of Venezuela, in locations such as Carrizal, Maracaibo, Turmero and Caracas.
Venezuela has provided the sport with some of the best boxers in recent times, with Jorge Linares, Roger Gutierrez, Jose Uzcategui, and Ismael Barroso all still currently operating at the highest level.
Probellum and Moron Boxing will now work together to help grow the sport in the country, offering support from grassroots level, all the way to the top of the professional ranks.
To date, Probellum has also secured co-promotional agreements with Wasserman Boxing, Universum in Germany, Groupe Yvon Michel in Canada, Maravillabox Promotions in Spain, Kynoch Boxing in Scotland, LNK Boxing in Latvia, Glozier Boxing in New Zealand, Shuan Boxing Promotions in the Dominican Republic, Bufalo Boxing in Nicaragua, Team Ellis Boxing in Australia, Armin Tan Promotions in Indonesia, and Box Office Sports in Ghana.
“I am proud to be partnering with Probellum to help take things to a whole new level in Venezuela,” said Rafael Moron. “We have been promoting events for over 20 years, and we’re delighted that all of the hard work has now paid off in a big way.
“Probellum is a major powerhouse and they will be able to create lots of opportunities for boxers in Venezuela, so everybody connected with the sport in the country should be excited to see how things unfold in the very near future.”
“Moron Boxing have become a huge force in Venezuela and so we’re delighted to now join forces with them,” said Richard Schaefer, President of Probellum. “South America is a key market for us, and this is just the first in what will soon be some very exciting moves made in that part of the world in the coming days and weeks.”
