The field of world boxing has just changed big time with the acquisition of Sauerland by Wasserman.
One of the biggest European boxing promotions that was headed by the Sauerland brother – Kalle and Nisse Sauerland, is now part of the Los Angeles-based sports marketing and talent management company Wasserman.
“We are delighted to welcome Kalle, Nisse and their team to Wasserman,” Casey Wasserman, CEO and Chairman of Wasserman said of his company’s newest business venture. “Their expertise and history within the sport is unrivalled and we are incredibly excited about the formation of Wasserman Boxing.
Wasserman’s acquisition of Team Sauerland adds to a growing portfolio boasting more than 2000 clients worldwide. Included among its robust roster of talent are Liverpool’s legend Steven Gerrard, Russell Westbrook, Rickie Fowler, Megan Rapinoe, Marshawn Lynch and Jamie Vardy.
Sauerland’s most notable boxers are heavyweight Filip Hrgovic, lineal cruiserweight champion Mairis Briedis, and middleweight Chris Eubank Jr.
