Probellum President Richard Schaefer has reflected on the fantastic signings that have been made during the first month of Probellum’s tenure – following their ground-breaking launch four weeks ago.
Probellum made waves in the boxing industry one month ago, when their ambitious next-generation sports company was officially announced, and in the process saw them begin their structured global expansion strategy.
It has seen the promotion sign some of the very best fighters that the world has to offer, with many more set to come in the near future.
At present, 14 fighters have been signed, with 11 countries being represented by boxers across the world. Armenia, Canada, England, Lithuania, Mexico, Philippines, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Ukraine and the United States all boast stars in Probellum’s stable.
Five of those athletes are current or former world champions, with boxing superstars like Nonito Donaire, Regis Prograis, Badou Jack, Ricky Burns and Paul Butler all part of the team, while there are also a number of top contenders on the cusp of big things, including Eimantas Stanionis, Arthur Biyarslanov, and Taras Shelestyuk.
The likes of Lewis Ritson, Hovhannes Bachkov, Darius Fulghum, Eduardo Hernandez, Mark Dickinson and Brandon Moore round up the talented boxers that are part of Probellum, with all of them set for plenty of success alongside their new promotional outfit.
Schaefer, along with Harrison Whitman, are both delighted with how everything has gone over the last four weeks, and they insist that it is just the start for the promotion.
“We are extremely proud of the stable that we have already established here at Probellum,” said Schaefer. “The fact that we have managed to recruit so many huge names shows the level of trust that they have within us, and that’s a great honor.
“This is just the beginning of what is going to be a very bright future. We only launched Probellum one month ago and we’ve already had great success, so watch this space to see what else is in store.”
“We always had a very clear vision to establish a global presence, and we’re thrilled with what we’ve been able to achieve so far,” said Whitman.
“Boxing is a worldwide sport, and it is essential to approach it in that manner.”
Probellum has also secured co-promotional agreements with some of the leading promoters in the sport, having partnered 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.
