In 2013, this former professional boxer and world title holder, set out with a simple desire to share his love for boxing and founded PRESTIGE FIGHT.
Djamel initially made his name as a kick-boxer, rubbing shoulders with the biggest names in the sport. And over the course of time and, lots of meetings…he honed his expertise in sport’s promotion. Commencing as a Promoter with the organization of public galas before moving into private galas.
He has worked at prestigious venues, such as the Grand Hotel, Place Vendome in Paris and the Palais des Festivals at Cannes…with the aim of revitalizing this noble practice, and adding an extra dimension. Hence, each evening is associated with a unique theme: Gatsby and the Roaring Twenties, the Venetian ball, the casino… and each event reflects a different character.
Charged with enhancing the sport and promoting the image of France internationally, while also drawing attention to the complexities of the boxing profession:
“”It is not always very apparent but for boxers, the sacrifices are enormous, without much recognition, and sometimes, none at all, both at the human and financial level. In France, there is a real decline at this level compared with other disciplines, so our work is cut out, and with Prestige Fight I strive every day with energy and commitment to deliver. I’ve put things on hold to see this project through and I’m no quitter, that’s just me, I have a fighter’s outlook. These are values I want to share.”
