Probellum, Lou DiBella Team Up
Two promoters have announced a strategic partnership.
Probellum is teaming up with boxing Hall of Fame promoter Lou DiBella. DiBella Entertainment & Probellum will collaborate in co-promotional activities — such as putting on events where their fighters fight each other — and look to develop the next great crop of fighters.
Lou DiBella was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2020. Lou has promoted names like middleweight world champion Bernard Hopkins, Mickey Ward, former WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto, former WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez and former junior welterweight titlist Paulie Malignaggi. He always has an eye for talent as he currently promotes George Kambosos Jr and Richard Commey, to name a few.
For 11 years, DiBella was HBO’s Senior Vice President in Charge of Programming and helped build HBO’s boxing into the series to was noted for; great fights, evenly matched with a great production team that delivered it into our homes.
Probellum, meanwhile, was founded in September 2021 by Richard Schaefer, former Golden Boy CEO who built the company from the beginning. Its signed fighters include WBC bantamweight Nonito Donaire and former WBA light welterweight titlist Regis Prograis to name few.
We all are looking forward to great things to come out of the partnership that should equal some great entertainment for all.
