Los Angeles, CA (May 16, 2023) World Boxing Council (WBC) #2 Ranked Junior Middleweight Charles ‘Bad News’ Conwell, (18-0, 13 KOs), has joined forces with Mark Habibi and Wise Owl Boxing for management as he heads towards the biggest fights of his six-year professional career.

The 25-year-old Conwell, promoted by DiBella Entertainment, is coming off a sensational performance. On November 26, 2022, fighting in Los Angeles, CA, the 2016 U.S. Olympian dominated hard-hitting Dominican Juan Carlos Abreu over ten rounds in a bout broadcast internationally on Pay-Per-View.

“I’m very excited to partner with Mark Habibi and Wise Owl Boxing as I move into the most important part of my career,” said the Cleveland, OH native. “I’m at the point now with my resume and my ranking that I need the full support of a remarkable manager like Mark as we ascend to the top.”
