Greg Cohen Promotions has signed a new welterweight to their stable. Undefeated Malik Hawkins (5-0, 4 KO's) is a fresh fighter having just turned pro a little over one year ago. The undefeated 20-year-old went 93-8 in his stellar amateur career, which included winning the State Silver Gloves, Regional Silver Gloves, National Silver Gloves, State Junior Olympics, State Golden Gloves, Regional Golden Gloves and Regional Junior Olympics. He was also a National Junior Olympics Bronze Medalist and a National P.A.L Champion.
"Malik is one of the most highly coveted prospects in all of boxing and I'm ecstatic he's decided to work with GCP," said Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions.
Cohen Promotions continues to slowly grow under the radar of the top promoters like Top Rank, Golden Boy, and the PBC. Their shows mostly reside to the upper east part of the country and can be found a lot on ShoBox: The Next Generation. They have a a handful of fighters that have the potential to be stars and they hope Hawkins is one of them.
