Thank you, everybody, for calling in for today’s conference call with Lamont Peterson, Seth Mitchell, and Timur Ibragimov.
To let you know, we will start with both Seth and Timur followed by Lamont Peterson after we discuss the heavyweight fight that will be part of Capital Showdown on December 10th in Washington, D.C. Before I introduce David Itskowitch from Golden Boy Promotions, I wanted to mention a couple of things regarding the fighters that are on the call today. From a local DC standpoint both Lamont and Anthony Peterson, and Seth Mitchell, are engaged in many activities for giving back during the holiday season.
They (the Petersons) gave out turkeys to people in need today right before this call. They’re also visiting with Martha’s Table, which is an excellent nonprofit organization here in Washington to help feed the homeless. And then on Thanksgiving Day, they will be giving out meals at the Central Union Mission. So they’re very active in giving back to the community, and that’s what this fight is all about.
