New chapter for Ukrainian boxing: Quattrgroup unveils B1 Boxing Promotions and announces big July 12 event

The news came on May 25 during B1 Boxing’s first press conference headlined by organization’s CEO

Alon Neumann and Sporting Director Miroslava Peganova. During the event, they spoke about the promotion’s guiding principles, introduced its boxers and shared some of their team’s exciting plans for bringing more Ukrainian boxers on the world stage.

Alon Neumann, who represents Quattrgroup in the promotion’s structure, said that creation of B1 is a logical step for the group that has long been contributing to the development of Ukrainian boxing at different levels.

“Quattrgroup worked with the Women's Boxing League, supported the Ukrainian Junior Championship in Khmelnitsky, international A. Chumakov trophy tournaments and, of course, ULions . We saw that young Ukrainian boxers have a huge potential, which often remains undiscovered due to insufficient support, and now we strive to realize it through B1 Boxing, said the CEO.

According to Alon Neumann, B1 Boxing is one of the components of a large-scale project B1 Promotions to develop contact sports in Ukraine. “We plan to expand into Brazilian jiu-jitsu and mixed martial arts under the brands B1 BJJ and B1 MMA and create martial arts club B1 Academy”.

Speaking about the founding principles of the new promotion company, Myroslava Peganova noted that her team primarily aims at creating optimal conditions for promoting Ukrainian boxers on the international scene as well as organizing world-class boxing bouts.

“B1 is not only a brand for us, but our guiding principle of being the first on the market in terms of how we build relationships with our boxers, as well the quality of the shows and the scale of broadcasts. The two boxing nights by ULions have demonstrated that there is a huge demand for exciting boxing events in Ukraine, and we work hard at B1 to make sure our shows are always an amazing experience.

The first event by B1 Boxing will take place on June 12 at the ACCO International Arena. The night’s card include the undefeated heavy Vladislav Sirenko facing off against French Newfel Ouatah, former European champion Oleg Malinovsky fighting for WBO Intercontinental belt against Nathanael Kakololo, as well as promising super heavyweight Igor Shevadzutsky, rising star of women's boxing Inna Statkevich, Shtonda brothers, and other fighters.

Tickets for the event are already available for purchase.
