Menard (29-1, 21 KOs) from Rayne, Louisiana, started boxing at the age of eight and had 82 amateur fights. He took a Bronze Medal in the 2007 U.S. Nationals and participated in the 2008 Olympic Trials at 132 pounds before turning professional in 2007.
In the paid ranks, Menard has already captured the Louisiana State Lightweight Title, the All American UBO Lightweight Title, and the UBO World Lightweight Title.
“I believe I’ll be able to receive big opportunities because GCP does televised fights and that’s exactly what I need, for someone to get me seen nationwide/worldwide,” said a happy Menard about the deal. “I am very fortunate to have signed with GCP, it will give me the outlet I need to be seen, to become a boxing superstar. It was all in God’s timing!”
Cohen, who also handles murderous punching Ismael Barroso, Australian buzz saw Josh King, Ghana’s undefeated Rafael Mensah and Canadian sensation Tony Luis, says Menard will make a welcome addition to his stable of world-class lightweights.
“I like what I see in Mason Menard,” said Cohen. “I’m looking forward to working with him and his manager, Chad Broussard. So far in his career, Mason has been sensational fighting in his home state. We are going to introduce him to the rest of the world and help him become a world champion.”
Menard’s first fight under the GCP banner will be announced shortly.
