Emerald Promotions is a new venture dedicated to promoting local talented boxers and is managed locally by Chris Graham. Chris is a former Ireland International amateur boxer who signed for Brendan Ingle before a serious knee injury cut short his professional career.
Emerald Promotions aims to showcase local boxing talent and the first event which took place on Saturday 25th February, Ireland’s Boxing Gems, was the first of up to 5 events in 2012 hosted by this new and exciting promotions company.
Chris stated, “This is great for local boxers because they don’t get a chance on bills in England so hopefully this will give them chances to show what they can do and build their careers.”
The aim of the company is to provide a platform to present Irish boxing talent that otherwise would not be seen without this opportunity. Chris and the top class trainers aim to develop each boxer to their full potential using their knowledge and skills of the sport and will fully support the guys as they move up the ranks and take on the best in the world.
