Mike Nashed

I am 35 years old and was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts.  I studied journalism at Boston University, but eventually graduated with a degree in the sciences.  

Presently, I work in biotechnology and am also an entrepreneur with a business that specializes in sports entertainment.

I particularly enjoy boxing because, of all major sports, it offers the most poignant moments of truth – “the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.”

I presently write for multiple online publications, including BoxRec News, and am typically in attendance for most major US boxing events and believe that my strongest area of understanding is of the business side of boxing.

Increasingly, in recent years, networks and promoters have directed the sport.  This aspect is sometimes overlooked, however, I believe that one must have a grasp of the various business relationships/rifts in order to truly understand boxing.

Though complicated, it’s a great sport.

With one swipe of his left hand, journeyman Jhonny Gonzalez (55-8) stunned now former WBC featherweight champion, Abner Mares (26-1-1), and may have dashed some of Golden Boy Promotions' best-laid plans.
