Quote of the Day – Chuck Champion

By Zach Arnold | September 1, 2008

Print Friendly and PDF

The hits keep on coming:

New CEO Champion, who Shaw helped bring aboard, says that the promoter is still a valuable asset to ProElite. Members of the board and big-block shareholders, he says, thought it would be wise to enlist managers most comfortable in transitioning from startup company mode into the next phase. Shaw didn’t go ballistic when apprised of the plan, to move from startup to next phase. He considered his health and the potential toll on his marriage, and agreed with the shift. “Tim Russert had just died,” Champion says.

Shaw has jumped back into his boxing business with both feet; he has a hand in two promotions that run on Sept. 13, one on HBO, one on Showtime.

    These guys are bizarre man. And a guy as powerful as Shaw, working with both HBO and Showtime promoting big combat sports events, is dangerous when that large influx of corporate capital comes in, things can get shady! Let’s hope the mob boss look-a-like Shaw will choose to do good. Thanks for the amazing reportage Zach.
