Golden Boy targeting Britain
Golden Boy promotions will apply for a licence to promote fights in Great Britain and hope to add to their stock of British fighters.
The American company, which promotes Amir Khan, is planning to sign up some of the fighters which represented Great Britain at the London Olympics.
Golden Boy chief executive Richard Schaefer told The Times: "We want to sign up some of those fighters who represented Britain at the Olympics.
"It would not necessarily be those who won medals and we want those fighters with the right talent and charisma.
"I will be spending a lot of time in the UK and I would personally take these fighters under my wing and nurture them, which is something I have not done before.
"The idea will be to showcase them here in the US as well and we would put on four fights a year in the UK with them and four in the US. We would hope to stage our first show in the UK in the second quarter of 2013."
