Comments Off on Thomas LaManna to now face Samuel Amoako for LBF Intercontinental title on Saturday, November 18th at The Claridge in Atlantic City

Atlantic City, NJ (November 5, 2017)–Tough veteran Samuel Amoako steps in for Tomas Mendez to fight popular welterweight contender Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna in a scheduled ten-round bout for the LBF Intercontinental welterweight title on Saturday, November 18th at The Claridge in Atlantic City. The bout will headline a nine-bout card promoted by Rising Promotions, Greg Cohen Promotions, Devin Haney Promotions & Winner Take All Productions. “This is boxing and changes always happen.

Comments Off on Greg Cohen Promotions Signs Heavyweight Contender Joey Dawejko to a Promotional Agreement

Greg Cohen Promotions proudly announces the signing of heavyweight contender Joey Dawejko (17-4-3, 10 KOs).  Dawejko (pronounced Da-Vayko) of Philadelphia, has been a classic underachiever, thus far, in his professional career, but says the addition of Cohen as his promoter is just one of the changes he has made.

Comments Off on Promoter Cohen Congratulates Crolla for Being a True Champion – Press Release

Promoter Greg Cohen wishes to congratulate WBA World Lightweight Champion Anthony Crolla for being just that… a true champion.   Crolla (30-4-3, 12 KOs) has chosen to ignore pleas from domestic promoters in his native England to engage in a showdown with WBO Champion Terry Flanagan and instead make his mandatory defense and face Cohen’s fighter, Interim WBA World Champion Ismael Barroso on May 7 at the Manchester Arena.  Barroso, with his intimidating 19-0-2, 18 KOs record and terrifying punching power, is considered a much more dangerous challenge to Crolla.   “You have to give your respect to Crolla,” said Cohen. “Crolla could have easily chosen to take the easier route of vacating his belt and fighting Flanagan, like Derry Matthews did, but he didn’t. That’s what true champions Read more […]
