Ringstar Promotions Signs Balderas Brothers
Ringstar Sports, the newly formed promotional company headed up by longtime boxing executive Richard Schaefer, made another big move last week when the company signed highly touted 2016 U.S. Olympian Carlos Balderas, along with his brother Jose, to promotional agreements. Ringstar will represent the two amateur standouts as they turn professional and guide their dreams as both fighters hope to secure lucrative futures for themselves and their family. The Balderas brothers from Santa Maria, California signed their contracts in Ringstar's LA-based offices last Tuesday, are the first fighters to join the company.
"Carlos Balderas was one of the most sought-after Olympians coming out of the 2016 Summer Games and I am so pleased that he, and his brother Jose, agreed to join Ringstar Sports," said Richard Schaefer, Chairman and CEO of Ringstar Sports. "Carlos, Jose and their entire family are the type of people that we want to do business with at our company. I am going to do whatever it takes to make Carlos the face of boxing and his brother will be right there with him. Both of these young men are exceptional fighters with great skills and even better work ethics. Most importantly, they have a desire to be great and so does Ringstar. I am looking forward to getting started."
"I'm really excited to start this partnership with Ringstar Sports and I'm looking forward to working with Richard for a long time," said Carlos Balderas. "My brother and I chose Ringstar because we immediately felt comfortable with Richard. He was very honest with me from the beginning and I really believe he's the best promoter in the sport. I'm ready to start my career and grow my fan base. I'm looking to do big things in this sport. It's not just about a paycheck. I want to win world titles and build a legacy."
"My brother and I are really comfortable with Richard and we believe he has the right vision for our careers," said Jose Balderas. "Richard has a vision not just for himself and his company, but he has the vision that will lead to us becoming world champions. That's what every boxer dreams of. I just can't wait until fight time. I want to show everybody what we're made of and the things that we can do. We're going to leave it all in the ring and leave the fans entertained every time."
"My whole family is very happy with this decision to join Richard and Ringstar Sports," said Zenon Balderas, Carlos and Jose's father. "Richard is a very smart man who is going to do amazing things for my sons. I know that my sons will be world champions, the question is, how many times? I believe that Richard has the mind to get us where we need to go."
