Greg Cohen and his Greg Cohen Promotions are in for a very big week with no less than three of their fighters contending for world championships in just eight days.
Tonight, GCP’s WBA light flyweight champion Carlos Canizales (22-0-1, 7 KOs) will attempt to make the third defense of his crown against #10-ranked Esteban Bermudez (13-3-2, 9 KOs) at the Foro Viena in Coyoacan, Mexico City and live on EstrellaTV’s Boxeo EstrellaTV and FITE.TV, beginning at 8:00 pm ET.
Then on Saturday night (May 29), GCP’s outstanding former world champion Melissa “The Shark” Hernandez (23-7-3, 7 KO) will return from a two-year layoff to challenge undefeated WBC Women’s World Super Lightweight Champion Chantelle Cameron (13-0, 7 KO) on DAZN’s Haney-Linares undercard from the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas, beginning at 8:00 pm ET.
And finally, the following Saturday night (June 5), GCP’s Romanian WBA #2-ranked heavyweight Bogdan Dinu (20-2, 16 KOs) will face Britain’s Daniel Dubois (15-1, 14 KOs) for the vacant WBA interim heavyweight title at Telford International Centre on June 5, live on BT Sport, beginning at 5:00 pm ET.
“It’s one of the biggest weeks GCP has had in a long time,” admitted Cohen, who is best known for helping guide several fighters from unknowns to world champions. “We have our current champion Carlos Canizales defending his championship and two of our other fighters going into title fights with real chances of winning.”
Cohen says he’s surprised to be having such a big 2021, given the pandemic’s effect on the sport. “I know this is a slower time for professional sports, but we’ve made a number of shrewd signings in the past few years and they are joining our established names and helping us thrive in difficult times.
