Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions proudly announces that Shabazz Bryant has been named GCP’s Executive Vice President, effective immediately.
For the past seven years, Baltimore-based Bryant, President of Shabazz Brotherz Boxing, has been a key figure in the surprisingly strong resurrection of his city’s boxing scene. Working with a long list of fighters including undefeated super lightweight contender Keith “The Bounty” Hunter, undefeated super middleweight prospect Lorenzo “Truck” Simpson and light heavyweight contender Travis Reeves, Shabazz Brotherz’ “Real Fights” series has been featured in first-rate venues such as Bowie State University in Bowie, Maryland, and the Baltimore Arena.
“I’m very happy about this opportunity and excited for the future,” said Shabazz Bryant. “I look forward to this year and to bringing new fighters to GCP.”
Bryant, along with fellow GCP Vice President Sarah Fina, will commence working together immediately on signing new talent while continuing to develop the ever growing GCP stable.
“We will be working on the day-to-day and on keeping everything moving in the right direction,” continued Bryant. “I’m looking to bridge the gap between some of the younger fighters and Greg because we have a lot of young fighters that are up-and-coming in this area and Greg has a lot of connections. As one of the top promoters in the sport, he has demonstrated his ability to bring fighters to the next level many times.”
“I’m very happy that Shabazz has officially joined GCP,” said Greg Cohen. “He is a seasoned promoter with a great eye for talent and there is no doubt he will be a tremendous asset to our company.”
