Promoters are the backbone of the boxing business. They do the nuts and bolts of a fight card, from gaining sponsers, working with a matchmaker to set up the card, arena lease, program design & printing, ticket sales, and advertising the event and on and on. As in all business there are the good and the bad. The list below is of GOOD PROMOTERS who worked and still work to put on an excellent card. When corrupt comissioners at all levels have tried to gut the boxing business these promoters have kept the boxing business alive a flourishing.
