Launched in May of 2000 by Ken Thompson, the former President of the World Boxing Hall of Fame, Thompson Boxing Promotions was established with the purpose of elevating the sport of boxing by providing exciting sports entertainment while showcasing talented athletes on their way to the summit of the sport.
In the past twelve years, the company has risen from being not only one of the top promotional firms in the competitive west coast market, consistently providing shows that live up to the adage ‘never a dull moment’, but to a nationwide powerhouse that have made household names what they are today, including Timothy Ray Bradley, Yohnny Perez and continue growing the rising stars such as Josesito Lopez, Juan Carlos Burgos, Artemio Reyes, Mauricio Herrera, Jose Reynoso, Efrain Esquivias, Abraham Lopez, Aron Martinez, Jonathon Arellano, Julio Diaz, Miguel Diaz, Richard Contreras, Sergio Nuñez and Danny Hernandez.
Recently signed Colombian prospects include: Alex Theran, Carlos Padilla, Darley Perez, Daulis Prescott, Janer Gonzalez, Jonathan Romero.
To build these stellar talents, Thompson Boxing Promotions has established its ‘Path to Glory’ and ‘New Blood’ series in Southern California, and thanks to matchmaker Alex Camponovo, these shows have become ‘must-see’ events for aficionados of the sweet science, as well as for casual fans who are mindful to get value for their entertainment dollar while watching competitive bouts from start to finish.
True to their work ethic, Thompson Boxing Promotions is not about to rest on their laurels and continues seek out platforms to showcase their talent. In early 2008 the company announced that Fox Sports Espanol had acquired the rights to air all of the TBP events, bringing this quality series of high-impact shows to viewers in Canada, the Caribbean, and in North, Central and South America.
Said Thompson, “We are enthusiastic about the future of the sport and our company, and we will continue on our quest for the best fighters, the best matches, and the best fans on our “Path to Glory” and “New Blood” series.
Thompson Boxing Promotions makes its home in Orange County, California where they proudly present their yearly charitable boxing dinner in which the proceeds are donated to deserving boxing gyms.
