Online gambling site sponsors boxer.
The online gambling site, Backgammonmaster.com, is to once again sponsor yet undefeated heavyweight boxer Roman Greenberg 25-0 (17). The Russian born Greenberg was raised in Israel and currently trains in the UK and has won all of his 25 bouts with 17 coming as knockouts. His next scheduled bout is his 26th of his career and first against Damon Reed at the South Town Exhibition Center in Sandy, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA on August 18. The 25 year old will battle Reed, a 35 year old veteran boxer 43-11 (30), who has won his last three fights in a career that has seen him face some of the world’s leading heavyweight and cruiserweight contenders since turning professional in 1995.
Michal Simms was the last person that Greenberg defeated during a match at Madison Square gardens in March. The bout went to ten rounds before Greenberg out-pointed his opponent.
“Reed will provide Roman with the toughest test of his impressive unbeaten career so far,” said Greenberg spokesperson Clive Bernath.
The Greenberg vs. Reed match is the headlining event on pay-per-view along with three additional big name matches showcasing professional heavyweights and cruiserweights such as David "Tuaman" Tua, "Baby" Joe Mesi and Jeremy Williams.
BackgammonMasters.com - online backgammon operator has been a major sponsor of Greenberg since early on in his career when Greenberg was relatively unknown. Now spokespersons for the company say they instantly saw his potential and have known all along that Greenberg was "born to be a world champ".
