Boxing cannot exist and thrive without excellent, extraordinary fighters… or top notch promoters. As boxing evolves beyond Bob Arum, Don King, Al Haymon, Lou Dibella, there is an American promoter in position to take over and continue to grow the sport the right way, with quality matchmaking, exciting fights, and a high quality, no-nonsense presentation which reminds of “throwback” boxing from the good old days. His name is Tom Loeffler…

About Tom Loeffler:
Tom Loeffler has worked in the boxing industry for over 30 years. He started by successfully managing numerous world champions and from that experience, in 2003 he founded K2 Promotions with Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, enabling them to take control of their careers. K2 Promotions holds the record for having promoted the most heavyweight world title fights this century while promoting all the world championship fights of the Klitschko brothers. Loeffler brought the Spotlight to the Flyweight division launching the Superfly Series on HBO that highlighted stars including Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, Juan Francisco Estrada, Kazuto Ioka, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Carlos Cuadras. The Superfly series changed the economics for those fighters and the entire division.
Loeffler is best known for his work with Gennadiy ‘GGG’ Golovkin, securing his HBO debut in 2012 and then strategically building him into an international superstar, selling out arenas such as Madison Square Garden in New York City, T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, The Forum in Los Angeles, and The O2 in London. He secured sponsorship deals for ‘GGG’ with global brands such as Jordan Brand, Hublot, Tecate, Chivas, and Bijan. Loeffler has also worked with Hall of Fame fighters Shane Mosley, James Toney and Laila Ali in addition to former Undisputed Welterweight World Champion Cecilia Braekhus and his first champion, former WBC Featherweight World Champion Kevin Kelley. He also promoted the US debut of Pound-for-Pound great Naoya Inoue on September 9, 2017 at the first Superfly event in Carson, CA and broadcast on HBO.
