SAM JONES APPOINTED TALENT RELATIONS FOR THE UK FOR PROBELLUM
Probellum is happy to announce that S-JAM Boxing founding partner Sam Jones has joined the team as Talent Relations for the UK.
Jones has become one of the key figures in boxing since launching S-JAM several years ago, acquiring some of the very best fighters around the world, including heavyweight phenom Joe Joyce, who is ranked highly in all of the governing bodies, undefeated Albanian sensation Florian Marku, and current European super-middleweight champion Lerrone Richards.
He has also been guiding the careers of a number of highly-rated prospects who look destined for big things in the future, including Guido Vianello, Johnny Fisher, Soloman Dacres, John James Hedges and more.
The hard work and determination from Jones has allowed him to secure key working relationships with some of the biggest names in boxing, and now brings his expertise and knowledge to the Probellum team.
In his new role with Probellum, Jones will be working with fighters across the UK, whilst also handling operations for the brand, assisting with venues, press conferences, weigh-ins and more.
It sees Probellum add to their already incredible all-star team, which includes Richard Schaefer as President, Eric Winter as Chief Operating Officer, Harrison Whitman as Chief Strategy & Legal Officer, Anthony Petosa as Executive Vice President of Production and Creative, Anthony Catanzaro as Vice President of Boxing Operations, and Mike Altamura as Head of Talent Development.
Probellum has already established promotional alliances in Europe, Africa, Russia, the Middle East, and Australia, with some of the biggest names in the sport, including Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom and Kalle and Nisse Sauerland with Wasserman Boxing.
In an effort to find the best opportunities and most exciting match ups for athletes, Probellum is looking forward to collaborating with everyone from PBC to Top Rank to Golden Boy Promotions in the United States along with any other promotor anywhere in the world.
“This is a really proud but emotional day for me as I leave S-JAM Boxing, but I felt it was the perfect time and the perfect company to join and throw my hat into the promotional game,” said Jones.
“I’m extremely grateful to Probellum for giving me this huge opportunity but it’s one I know I’ll thrive on. I can’t put into words how grateful I am to my friend Adam Morallee and my first signing and one of my closest friends Joe Joyce, but I leave with him being number one contender for the world heavyweight title and that fills me with extreme pride and makes me extremely happy.
“I’d also like the thank every fighter within S-JAM and no doubt I’ll be keeping an eye on their progress and supporting them in their careers. I can’t wait to get started with this amazing new company and to play a part in helping it go from strength to strength, let’s go Probellum!”
“We’re ecstatic to bring in Sam Jones as Talent Relations for the UK at Probellum, said Richard Schaefer, President of Probellum. “You only have to look at what Sam has achieved in such a short amount of time to know that he has a very bright future in the sport.
“Sam already has a fantastic working relationship with a number of leading names in the sport, and we’re glad that he will now be working alongside us here at Probellum.”
