AC Sports Management Acquired By Ballengee Group; Adrian Clark Heading Up Boxing Division

The Dallas-based sports agency, Ballengee Group, has acquired AC Sports Management, adding a boxing division to their full-service conglomerate.

Dallas millennial Adrian Clark founded AC Sports in 2012.

“Timing is everything in boxing. I believe the same goes for business. Ballengee Group has been very supportive and vocal on adding boxing to their roster. Our values and unique way of representing athletes matched up perfectly,” Clark stated.

Clark, 32, competed as an amateur boxer while earning his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi.
Joining Ballengee Group provides Clark with a larger platform and proven resources as he looks to emerge as one of boxing’s leading representatives.

“It has been one hell of a journey for me. I survived entrepreneurship and took AC Sports Management to new heights, without any major backing.  I’ve been fortunate to learn from the fighters, promoters, and pioneers in the fight game. Now it’s time to take things to another level.”

Ballengee Group owners James and Alex Ballengee flew to New York April 20th to observe Clark in the heart of boxing, Madison Square Garden.

“After being around AC and seeing how he operates, we knew there was a match. It was just figuring out the details from there.
We did, and now we’re all excited for the continued growth of Ballengee Group and the success we’ve had in Combat Sports,” stated Alex Ballengee.

Clark was named to Forbes magazine 4th annual ’30 under 30’ (Sports) list in 2016. Along with pro-athlete representation, Clark is a published author of three books.

Clark has negotiated for a portfolio of leading athletes including current IBF World Champion Errol Spence Jr. Willie Monroe Jr., Frank Galarza and Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller, and undefeated junior middleweight, Chris Ousley, and former WBA lightweight champion Jason Sosa round out the promising boxing division.”
