Boxing manager Adrian Clark releases mini documentary Adrian Clark: Before The Bell on Youtube

Dallas, TX (January 28, 2015)–Up and coming boxing manager Adrian Clark has released a mini documentary that chronicles a week in the life of his career as he leads up to a fight.The Documentary is titled Adrian Clark: Before The Bell 

Clark of Dallas, Texas has quickly become one of the brightest young minds in the boxing industry and is coming off a stellar 2014 where he led fighters such as James De La Rosa to appearances on the Floyd Mayweather – Marcos Maidana II undercard where he defeated former world champion Alfredo Angulo as well as a December fight on HBO Boxing After Dark.
Another client, Jerry Belmontes fought WBC Lightweight champion Omar Figueroa on Showtime Championship Boxing in a bout where most people who viewed the fight thought Belmontes had won a decision to capture the belt but lost via split decision.
 “It was an amazing experience doing a mini documentary. Although the focal point was myself, the fighters I work for get good exposure also. Name and face value are very essential when trying to market athletes so when you see me, you see my guys. When you see my guys, you see me even if we aren’t there in the physical form, we all represent each other. Watching the documentary forced me to stop and admire what I’ve done and what these athletes are doing,” said Clark
“In five years  & at  28 years old now, I’d like the believe I’ve done a pretty good job, especially working by myself with no backing. I sprung De la Rosa free from Don King, then got him 2 big fights on Showtime PPV and HBO. He made more money in 2 fights than his entire career combined. I negotiated a world title shot fight for Belmontes, earning him the most money in his career. I worked to get Ray Ximenez free from a bad promotional contract and active again, on his way to bigger fights. I signed an amazing prospect in Oscar Mojica who is a future champ at 118 lbs. and debuted a future star at 140 in Steve Belmontes. 2014 was an amazing year for AC Sports Management, LLC. Looking to capitalize in 2015.”
“There are a lot of amazing things going on in boxing right now. I’m young, up and coming and trying to maintain a respected name. I look to work and build healthy relationships with Banner Promotions, Roc Nation, Top Rank and local promoters. I have a fantastic relationship with Golden Boy and Main Events; I hope to maintain those strong bonds and make the best fights that include my guys.”
“Patience is key in the boxing business. One has to understanding that timing is everything and forced work isn’t the way. AJ Galante {who is probably the only other manager in his 20’s} and I understand that we are the young blood’s in the sport. In 5 or 10 years we’ll be the Al Haymon’s, Frank Espinoza’s and Cameron Dunkin’s… Big name guys and networks will look to work through us. We know that and we are constantly preparing and strategizing to carry on the amazing legacy of boxing in hopes of leaving a legacy of our own. Its pretty cool.”
