Middleweight beltholder Peter Quillin could soon defend his WBO title against promotional stablemate Danny Jacobs.
Golden Boy switches to pink
The mothers of Golden Boy president Oscar De La Hoya and company partner Bernard Hopkins both died of breast cancer, and to bring attention to the fight against this disease during Breast Cancer Awareness Month the company is changing its logo to pink.
Raising breast cancer awareness is a cause near and dear to the hearts of several members of the Golden Boy Promotions team, including company President Oscar De La Hoya and company partner and future Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins.
De La Hoya's mother, Cecilia, died of breast cancer in October of 1990 with the wish that her boxer son would triumph in the Olympics, which he did by earning the gold medal with a victory over Germany's Marco Rudolph on Aug. 8,1992 in Barcelona, Spain.
Hopkins' mom, Shirley, died of the disease in August 2003.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Golden Boy Promotions has created a new logo which will be used throughout the month of October to let the world know that one of the biggest fights going on right now is the fight against the disease.
