In a sea of boxing promoters, Thompson Boxing Promotions stands out from the rest by
consistently delivering high-quality, action packed fights that thrill the most knowledgeable of
boxing fans and turn boxing novices into aficionados. The Southern California based company
was started in May of 2000 by Ken Thompson, the former President of the World Boxing Hall of
Fame. Thompson Boxing Promotions set out to develop and build top-tier boxing talent capable
of competing for and capturing world titles in the various boxing divisions. In just a short
amount of time, Mr. Thompson has built one of the most influential and important boxing
promotional companies in the world.
The 16-year- old promotional company boasts a diverse list of former and current world
champions that are currently, or at one point, promoted by Thompson Boxing Promotions. The
list includes: Yohnny Perez, Timothy Bradley, Jhonatan Romero, and Darleys Perez. The
company continues to grow and nurture the future stars of the sport by carefully mapping the
careers of young and talented boxers, such as: Josesito Lopez, Juan Carlos Burgos, Artemio
Reyes, Aron Martinez, Giovani Santillan, Danny Roman, LaRon Mitchell, Jose Roman, Cesar
Villarraga, Roberto Arriaza, and Carlos Carlson.
Throughout the years, Thompson Boxing Promotions has crafted several monthly boxing series
to cultivate and showcase their young and established prizefighters. Among them, “Path to
Glory,” “New Blood,” and “Locked ‘n Loaded” feature exciting and crowd-pleasing fights that
originate from venues throughout Southern California. Among the individuals primarily
responsible for the consistently entertaining and compelling fight cards, are Alex Camponovo,
Matchmaker and General Manager for Thompson Boxing Promotions.
Matchmaking is an intricate art and perhaps no one excels at it better than the veteran talent
evaluator Camponovo, who has been with Thompson Boxing Promotions since it opened its
doors in 2000. “Alex Camponovo, along with the rest of the staff at Thompson Boxing
Promotions continue to deliver incredible results,” Thompson said. “They have helped us earn a
reputation for being a promotional company that strives to find the best fighters and match them
in competitive fights that leave long lasting impressions.”
The company’s boxing series have developed a strong and loyal contingent of fans among
California’s Riverside, Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego Counties. Thompson Boxing
Promotions makes its headquarters in Orange County, California and promotes shows
nationwide and internationally.
