THIS time last year Steve Goodwin had approximately 70 professional boxers on the books and was looking to establish himself as more manager than promoter in 2017.
Now, with 2017 on its way out, Goodwin has 105 signed to Goodwin Boxing, managed some recognisable names and champions, and this year promoted 11 shows, as well as one in conjunction with David Haye’s Hayemaker Boxing.
All in all, then, 2017 has been a fruitful one for Steve and the Goodwin family (daughter Olivia and son Josh also promote). “We’re increasing the quantity but we’re also increasing the quality as well,” he told Boxing News. “I think that will be borne out next year with the amount of champions we have.”
