Lamont Roach, Jr. Signs With Golden Boy Promotions!
BATB has learned that Upper Marlboro, MD lightweight Lamont Roach, Jr. has signed a promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions and will look to make his pro debut sometime in May.
Roach capped off a stellar amateur career in 2013 by winning the National Golden Gloves and the USA Nationals in his weight class and earning a bronze medal at the Klitschko Brothers Tournament in Ukraine.
Unlike many of his Beltway brethren, Roach did not sign with manager Al Haymon. Roach's father, Lamont, Sr. will serve as manager. Roach, Jr. joins his No Xcuse gym mate D'Mitrius Ballard as Golden Boy signees.
