WARREN BOXING MANAGEMENT AND MO PRIOR JOIN FORCES
After a 2020 littered with frustration for everyone involved with boxing, two growing stables are set to merge in pursuit of a big 2021 and beyond. Warren Boxing Management, headed up by Alfie Warren, and Mo Prior’s ‘Priority Boxing’ are to team up and bring their fighters under one banner.
Mo Prior has been a mainstay of the small hall scene in London firstly with Boxing Warriors and more recently as Priority Boxing. He gained a reputation for his work with Greg Steene, who sadly passed away last year, as a gentle giant of the sport.
Prior has helped guide Chris Jenkins to the British and Commonwealth welterweight titles and manages a wealth of prospects: including the returning Mitchell Smith.
Warren Boxing Management combines over 30 years of boxing experience with a passion for developing some of the best amateur talents. Alfie and his team oversaw Kaisy Khademi’s rise to WBO European in just eight fights and also look after the careers of Roberto Duran Jr, Ronnie Clarke and James Heneghan.
Speaking about the merger, Alfie Warren said: “This brings big opportunities for ourselves and Mo – from expanding our networks to being able to make some very interesting match ups in the future. With the high quality of talent within (our stable) we are very excited for the future.”
Freddy Warren commented: “It’s a no brainer joining forces: we’ve always had such a good relationship with Mo (and) worked together since WBM started. It’s great news for fight fans and our fighters will be seeing some interesting matchups in the near future.”
Mo Prior added: “I’m delighted to be amalgamating with Warren Boxing Management… I have been working closely with them since their formation and had their boxers on my shows regularly. We are going to be put on great shows across the UK and developing quality fighters.”
