Maloney Vows To Become Britain’s Top Boxing Promoter In 2009

Frank Maloney insists he can become Britain’s number one promoter this year.

The Londoner celebrates 25 years as a promoter in 2009. The rollercoaster ride has taken him from Lewisham to Las Vegas and Maloney believes his current talent stacked stable is the most exciting crop he has ever had.

Many top fight figures believe Maloney’s super middleweight hope Darren Sutherland is the hottest prospect in world boxing.

His stable also boasts European champions Ian Napa at bantamweight, Rendall Munroe at super bantamweight and he expects to make it a Euro hat-trick in March when Salford light middleweight Jamie Moore challenges Italian Michele Piccirillo.

Maloney admits old sparring partner Frank Warren is still the main man but does not agree with his rival’s comments about his galaxy of stars becoming household names

Maloney said: “I am a great believer that if one or two of your stable make it beyond British level it is a fantastic achievement. I believe I have enough fighters in my stable that can become British champions, but in today’s world that doesn’t impress sports editors.

“I believe Darren Sutherland, Jamie Moore, Rendall Munroe and Ian Napa can go that step further and make headlines in 2009.I also expect to see Ajose Olusegun fighting for major honours this year.

“There are several other fighters in my stable also going in the right direction like Akaash Bhatia, Mark Thompson, John Lewis Dickinson, Ashley Sexton, Paul Edwards, Scott Haywood, Tom Dallas, Martin Murray and Mark Moran.

“I would crack open a dozen bottles of champagne if one of these claim a real World Title and a bottle for each that challenges for a real World Title. This is what the public want and demand from boxing promoters.

“I believe I have a few others who are currently works in progress and I believe in Larry Olubamiwo I may have discovered another Ernie Shavers. I still believe I need one more top fighter to complete my jigsaw and become Britain’s number one promoter.”

Maloney, who staged his first show in 1984, will celebrate his quarter of a century promoting with a traditional London knees-up in April.

He added: “Boxing is going through a change and only the fittest survive. I don’t worry about all the ‘johnny come lately’ promoters. The men I respect are Frank Warren, Barry Hearn and Mick Hennessy, who have consistently delivered”.
