HOUSTON, Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LaTavia Roberson is best known as the co-founder of the R&B hit group Destiny Child, one of the world's best-selling girl groups of all time. Roberson has sold over 25 million records with Destiny's Child. Her work has earned her several awards and nominations, including two Grammy Awards, three Soul Train Music Awards and eight Billboard awards.
LaTavia is the newest face to step into the world of boxing. Her successful entertainment career has provided her with a wealth of knowledge and brings management skills of the highest level to the next generation of boxers. She has had a love and passion for boxing since she was a little girl.
Roberson also created Slug Fest Magazine a boxing magazine for the fans. She has partnered with longtime friend and business partner Alfred Adams. Adams is a retired venture capitalist. "When the idea came to mind, I wanted to make sure we would put the very best people in place to give the fighters the best management team possible," Adams said. Roberson has done that without question.
Roberson secured New Orleans Saints Hall of Famer Michael Lewis to be head of Public Relations for the company. "Public Relations is key to any successful business and what better person is there than Michael? He has been in just about every situation a fighter will be in. From not being famous to being famous, to dealing with public speaking," Roberson commented.
From a sponsorship stand point Adams called long time friend Randy Jackson from the rock band Zebra to help facilitate this process for their fighters. Adams and Roberson knew at this point they had the right front office people in place to make the best possible decisions for their fighters.
Roberson has two boxing training locations one in San Antonio, TX under the headship of two-time world champion Jesse James Leija and one in New Orleans, LA called Uppercuts Boxing Gym under Valrice "Whop" Cooper owned by Darrick Stewart. Whop is best known as Roy Jones, Jr.'s Trainer. Roberson also secured 8-time Mr. Olympia Lee Haney who is best known for working with Evander Holyfield as strength and conditioning coach and dietitians. With these elements in place it got the attention of world champion boxer Roy Jones, Jr.
Roy Jones, Jr. has meet with Vice President Alfred Adams and Michael Lewis to discuss being apart of this history in the making venture. "When I met with Alfred and Michael, I was impressed from a management stand point they had it together. I could see that they were offering more to the fighters than what is being offered today. I even offered my boxing training camp to them," Jones stated. Roberson Sports Management is talking with Mr. Jones about promoting fights for their fighters.
"We have a few fighters we have an interest in, but we have not signed anyone to date, we will release this information once we sign a fighter," Roberson stated.
