Theodorou Signs To Be Invicta Ring Boy
Elias Theodorou is adding another job to his ever growing resume of fighter, brand ambassador, social media must-follow, and now ring boy.
On the MMA Hour on Monday, The UFC middleweight known for his luxurious locks announced that he’s been recruited to act as a “ring boy” for Invicta FC 28, which takes place at the Union Event Center in Salt Lake City on March 24.
That’s, MR. Ring Boy! 🙌🏻🛑 #fbf Hey @joerogan I couldn’t agree more, it’s about time for a “Ring Boy” to grace the octagon and soon. In fact, here’s a pic from my debut this past weekend! Next stop, the big leagues, @invictafc TBA ! #TheManeEvent™ YouTube channel launches Feburary 14th! #yourwelcome 😉 #ringboy #equality #shirtsoptional #invictaorbust #gobigorgohome
This won’t be the first ring walk for Elias, as he made his debut as a ring boy at a small show in Montreal,but will soon make his Invicta debut, and will be able to wear things other than Reebok.
“I’ve talked to (Invicta FC president) Shannon (Knapp) and I will be allowed to put all my sponsors on my shorts and beyond that all the local sponsors that I have like Fuel Foods, and HPN, which I’m going to be doing a campaign for, essentially show and performance, because I’m hoping to fight in April in Atlantic City if all goes well,” Theodorou said. “I’m going to be ring boy ready and then fight ready in just a couple of months.”
“And more importantly, I have really large brands that are going to be jumping in. I’m the world ambassador for Mattel and I work with them promoting Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em robots and they also love the whole idea of the equality and the openness to actually put yourself in this position. And I’m actually going to be partnering, if all goes well, with Barbie for ring boy and I will be ‘Man-Bun Ken’.”
