FPU AT WBC CONVENTION

 

 

The reason for people in the boxing business to attend the big 52nd WBC Convention December 14-20 in Las Vegas just got a lot better as the WBC announced that two sessions from the highly acclaimed Fight Promoter University founded by fight promoter Roy Englebrecht have been added to the convention schedule.

"I had a chance to visit with Mauricio Sulaiman at the Golovkin fight on October 18th and I brought up the idea of the WBC adding some additional workshops for convention attendees, workshops that would really address the issues that boxing promoters face each and every day and areas that we teach at Fight Promoter University," said Englebrecht. "He really liked the idea so I will be teaching two workshops, one on 'Creating A Blueprint For Your Fight Promotions Company' and one on 'Pricing and Selling Fight Tickets'."

This will be the fifth time that the WBC has held their annual convention in Las Vegas, and the Mirage Hotel will be the host hotel. For convention information go to www.wbcboxing.com.
