Singapore, 11th April 2018 – Following his impressive exploits in the boxing ring, local boxer Hamzah Farouk has been snapped up by Golden Glove Asia Promotions (GGAP) – the promotional arm of The Ring Boxing Community – on a two-year deal.
The two-deal will see GGAP manage the 29-year-old’s professional boxing career through offering him multiple opportunities to compete, with the aim of setting up a chance for Farouk to challenge and secure a regional championship title by 2019.
First up for Farouk, who also coaches at The Ring Boxing Community, is a match at Fight Evolution 8 on 5 May, where he has a chance to stretch his winning streak to 5 successive professional fights. Thereafter, the undefeated fighter will once again step into the boxing ring to compete at The Ring Fighting Championship IV, GGAP’s premium pro-am boxing event, happening on 29 June. The fourth instalment of the event, hosted at The Ring Boxing Community at Kim Yam Road, will see a total of 14 fights on the card, with four professional fights and ten amateur fights, of which, four are amateur title bouts.
On this deal with GGAP, Farouk said: “I’m delighted to take another huge step in my professional boxing career by signing with GGAP. As a coach at The Ring Boxing Community, I’ve seen the efforts by the GGAP team to build up the boxing scene in Singapore, both at an amateur and professional level, and I wholeheartedly believe we’ll be able to achieve great things together.”
Building up the boxing community
Mr. Ruchdi Hajjar, the founder of GGAP, has been monitoring Farouk’s progress since his amateur boxing days when they both trained at the same gym, and has been left in awe of his work ethic and commitment to constantly improving his skill set.
Mr. Hajjar added, “It’s been incredible seeing how far Hamzah has come in his boxing career, and we believe under GGAP, we will be able to work closely with him to take him to the heights we know he can reach. We’ve planned a well-rounded program for Hamzah as part of the two-year deal, which includes more competitions for him to compete in, to get him ready to challenge for a regional title by next year.”
