Los Angeles-based Pitbull Boxing Promotions is kicking off their entrance into the boxing business as a co-promoter for the May 10 IBF 140lb eliminator between Dierry Jean and “Mookie” Pendarvis at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma. The new company plans to sign talent from all over country. “At one point in time, boxing was a means of elevation for the under privileged inner-city male. Now it seems that avenue has been closed, due in part to promoters’ lack of interest in developing a fighter and the greed that comes with the business. I pride myself in being successful in my many business endeavors. Now that I have the time and the means, I want to help fighters that deserve to be seen by the masses,” said Pitbull chief Herb Hudson, owner of famed Roscoe’s House of Chicken n’ Waffles chain and also the driving force behind Pitbull Energy Products. Heading up the day-to-day business at Pitbull Boxing will be Rachel Charles and Diane Vara.
