Saying that I am excited to be joining forces with Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions is an understatement. This is a moment that I have been anticipating for a long time. Sycuan Ringside Promotions has been doing a great job as Guzman’s promoter for some time and now with Golden Boy by our side we will be able to accomplish more as a team.
Our previously scheduled bout with WBO champion, Scott Harrison, was postponed numerous times. This causes Joan, as well as me, great frustration and we finally came to the realization that we cannot win against Frank Warren and all of his antics. Primarily because of this we decided to embrace the opportunity to join forces with Golden Boy Promotions. We are already making plans of fighting on the De La Hoya vs. Mayorga under card on HBO Pay- Per-View. As his manager, I feel it’s in Guzman’s best interest to get exposure and build a fan base and not waste any more time with Harrison and his “tooth fairy tales.”
It actually an unfortunate happening that fans in Scotland will not be able to see the two best featherweights clash in the ring, but I can assure them and anyone else that we were patiently awaiting the bout for six months. If they have anyone to blame, it is their own champion. Maybe he’ll take up our offer of coming over to the states and fighting us on HBO May 6th. This is something that I highly doubt.
With this we are now going to take our talent to an opponent that is to be announced and work on making our mark in the featherweight division. In closing I will like to thank HBO, Golden Boy Promotions, and our “family” at Sycuan Ringside Promotions for all of their efforts and hard work in making this happen. I suggest you all tune in tomorrow to Hot 97.1 between the hours of 9am and 10am to find out who our next opponent will be!
