Despite being part of one of the worst Olympics outings in American boxing history, six of the United States fighters found a silver lining in their Olympic cloud. Terrell Gausha, Errol Spence Jr., Dominic Breazeale, Jamel Herring, Marcus Browne, and Rau’shee Warren have all signed contracts with powerhouse advisor Al Haymon.
This is a huge opportunity for the amateur standouts, in addition to having a man like Haymon on their side; CBS is slated to air the professional debuts of the fighters giving them wide exposure to a free TV audience. No specific dates were set for the fighters, but all are said to be making their professional debuts before years end.
Haymon already holds an impressive stable of fighters that includes Floyd Mayweather Jr., Adrien Broner, Seth Mitchell, and Peter Quillin, to name a few.
