PROBELLUM ENTERS MULTI-FIGHT CO-PROMOTIONAL DEAL WITH MATCHROOM FOR LEE MCGREGOR
Wed, 17 Nov 2021
Los Angeles, CA – November 16, 2021 - Fresh from unveiling Lee McGregor as its latest athlete, Probellum is pleased to announce a multi-fight co-promotional deal for the bantamweight king alongside fellow powerhouse Matchroom Boxing.
It means the two boxing giants will work together to guide the career of British, Commonwealth and European champion McGregor (11-0, 9 KOs), as he looks to work his way towards a world title shot.
McGregor's first fight since teaming up with Probellum and Matchroom Boxing will come at the AO Arena in Manchester on Saturday 18 December, when he defends his European title against Narek Abgaryan.
The fight takes place on the undercard of the Joseph Parker vs. Derek Chisora 2 card, and will be broadcast live worldwide on DAZN (with the exception of New Zealand and Samoa).
“I’m absolutely delighted to be getting back in the ring defending my European Title against Narek Abgaryan,” said McGregor. “This is another step closer to me becoming a world champion. I have the best team possible and I believe with Probellum and Matchroom backing me, I can win world titles at multiple weights.”
“The Bantamweight division is one of the deepest and most exciting in the sport with some of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world,” said Richard Schaefer, President of Probellum.
“We are thrilled to be able to promote Lee McGregor. He is one of the most exciting fighters in the world today, and his fights are must-see events. With his power and speed, he is without a doubt the future of the division and a multi-weight world champion.
"All of us at Probellum are looking forward to working with Eddie Hearn and his great team at Matchroom to give Lee the opportunities and platform he deserves. December 18 is the beginning for an exciting journey with Lee.”
