    Golden Boy Promotions plans to apply for a licence to promote fights in Great Britain. The company, which promotes British star Amir Khan and worked in the past with David Haye and Ricky Hatton, intends to sign up some of the fighters who boxed for the host nation at the London Olympics.

    Golden Boy chief executive Richard Schaefer told The Times: "We want to sign up some of those fighters who represented Britain at the Olympics. It would not necessarily be those who won medals and we want those fighters with the right talent and charisma.

    "I will be spending a lot of time in the UK and I would personally take these fighters under my wing and nurture them, which is something I have not done before.

    "The idea will be to showcase them here in the US as well and we would put on four fights a year in the UK with them and four in the US. We would hope to stage our first show in the UK in the second quarter of 2013."

    Olympic Bronze medal winner Anthony Ogogo spoke with several papers and denied published reports that he already agreed to be a part of Golden Boy's run in the UK. The boxer stated that no decision has been made regarding a turn to the pro ranks.
