Warren Signs Muhammad Ali*
You read that headline correctly, Frank Warren has put pen to paper to a contract with Muhammad Ali, no not the greatest of all time who passed away in 2016, but the former Olympic standout.
Following an amateur career that saw him earn medals in the AIBA world youth championships, the European Championships and the Summer Youth Olympics before making the Olympics in 2016,
“I am excited and I can’t wait to get going – it was been a long wait for me,” said Ali in a press release. “Frank has done a lot with so many fighters over the years and recently with the likes of Daniel Dubois and Anthony Yarde. Hopefully I can follow in their footsteps and I hope to go even further than them.”
“I have been through a rough patch even though I don’t think I did anything wrong, but I have done my time and I am looking forward to what happens now. For a while I was feeling down and not too good, but after that for the last year and a half I have been in the gym all the time. I am 100 per cent ready to go now.”
“I am in boxing to go all the way and I want to be a multi-weight world champion, so I will take one step at a time,” Ali continued.
“He now wants the opportunity to progress in the sport he excels in and we are going to give it to him,” Warren said. “As far as I am concerned he starts with a clean slate and I am looking forward to navigating him towards title contention.”
