Junior middleweight Charles "Bad News" Conwell (20-0 including the World Series of Boxing) has joined forces with Mark Habibi and Wise Owl Boxing for management. The 25 year-old Conwell, promoted by DiBella Entertainment, is coming off of a win in November. Fighting in Los Angeles, the 2016 U.S. Olympian dominated hard-hitting Dominican Juan Carlos Abreu over ten rounds. “I’m very excited to partner with Mark Habibi and Wise Owl Boxing as I move into the most important part of my career,” said the Cleveland, Ohio native. “I’m at the point now with my resume and my ranking that I need the full support of a remarkable manager like Mark as we ascend to the top.”
Said Los Angeles native Habibi, “Charles has all the attributes to become a world champion, he just needs the opportunity. I feel he can beat anyone in the junior middleweight division and he’s ready to prove it in the ring. I’m honored to be working with him and we look forward to announcing his next fight soon.”
Among the other notable names that Conwell has defeated are Juan Carlos Rubio, Wendy Toussaint, Madiyar Ashkeyev and Courtney Pennington.
