October 24, 2013 – Boxing promoter Gary Shaw who represents Australian fighters Daniel Geale and top contender Joel Brunker to name a few, is an avid supporter of promoting fights internationally, especially in Australia.
After a fight between Australian Anthony Mundine and American Shane Mosley was recently cancelled due to some controversy, Shaw had this to say about his dealings with the Australian boxing commission.
“Daniel Geale and Joel Brunker are two great fighters that I’m proud to say are part of our stable here at GSP. In all my dealings with the Australian boxing commission, I found them to be very honest and upright in every aspect of business. I know Shane Mosley had some harsh words toward the Australian boxing scene and commission and he’s entitled to his opinion, but I’ve always had a great deal of respect for everyone I’ve dealt with in Australia, including Bill Treacy, Garrie Francisco and Angelo DiCarlo to name a few.”
Shaw went on to say, “Shane Mosley is a future Hall of Famer and I admire and respect him for all his accomplishments and dedication to our sport. I don’t know if Shane was dealing with the Australian commission directly or if it was the promoter that he had a problem with, but every time I did business in Australia, everyone got paid. I’m proud to say I’ll continue doing business in Australia and I find their commission to be straightforward, honest and truthful.”
