For Immediate Release
Nutley, NJ (September 29, 2016)–GH3 Promotions is pleased to announce the signing of three top undefeated prospects to promotional contracts.
Bantamweight Stephon Young; Super Featherweight Antonio Williams and lightweight Logan Yoon join the GH3 Promotions stable and will be featured in events throughout the United States
Young of St. Louis, Missouri has a record of 14-0-3 with six knockouts.
The 28 year-old is a five year-pro and has two nationally televised draws with Antonio Nieves (12-0) and Nikolay Potapov (14-0).
Young will be back in action this Friday night when he takes on Juan Antonio Lopez for the WBA NABA title in a bout that will be shown live on CBS Sports Network.
Williams of Fort Lauderdale, Florida has a record of 5-0 with four knockouts.
The 19 year-old was an accomplished amateur as he amassed six-national titles in a 169 fight amateur career.
Williams is known as a boxer-puncher, who is coming off a first round stoppage over Daniel Chavez on September 9th in Jalisco, Mexico.
Yoon was a major amateur sensation who competed in 90 amateur bouts and was a 8-time state champion in Hawaii, who captured The Jr. Olympic Bronze medal, Adidas National Champion, Title National Champion, Jr. National Golden Gloves Champion, and Ringside National Champion.
He is Korean and Puerto Rican, who calls Hawaii home.
Because of his amateur prowess, he was given a special dispensation to turn professional at the age of 17. He did just that as he registered a first round stoppage over Leonardo Cervantes on September 9th in Jalisco, Mexico.
“These are three more key signings for us,” said GH3 Promotions CEO Vito Mielnicki.
“Stephon has shown that he can compete with any of the top prospects in the bantamweight division. We also now have two of the youngest and brightest prospects in the country in Williams and Yoon. They are terrific talents and all three are managed by Henry Rivalta. I have wanted to work and do business with Henry for a long time as we share the same vision on moving fighters, so I think these three guys will be impact fighters in the sport for many years to come.”
