Staten Island light heavyweight Marcus Browne, a 2012 U.S. Olympian, has signed with the most powerful advisor in boxing, Al Haymon.
Browne was the first Atlas Cops & Kids Boxing Program product to compete in the Olympic Games. Browne is a two-time National PAL champion and 2012 USA Boxing National gold medalist who is trained by Gary Stark at the Park Hill Boxing Club.
Haymon has also signed Browne’s 2012 U.S. Boxing teammates Terrell Gausha, Dominic Breazeale, Rau’shee Warren and Errol Spence Jr. Haymon’s client list includes Floyd Mayweather Jr., Andre Berto, Adrien Broner, Austin Trout, Peter Quillin, Gary Russell Jr., and Chris Arreola, among the more notables.
Obviously these USA Olympic boxers are going to be getting a bit of the golden treatment under the direction of Al Haymon. It will be interesting to see where they all end up promotionally, and when and where we begin to see them fight. There will be some network television debuts for some of these kids coming up this fall, for starters.
