Fighter Bio

Greg Cohen proudly announces the signing of Schenectady, New York’s Michael “Baby Face” Faragon (15-0, 6 KOs) to a promotional agreement.

For good reason, the undefeated 23-year-old Faragon has been called “the most promising young fighter to come out of the Capital Region in a long time.”

Before his 15-fight winning streak as a professional, Faragon compiled and 85-15 amateur boxing record and won the state Golden Glove Championships twice, the Western Olympic trials and a junior national championship. He was also the number one ranked light welterweight in the United States in 2007.

“Michael is an exceptionally gifted young man with enormous talent and we’re extremely pleased to be working with him,” revealed Cohen. “He’s a good looking kid with all the right tools to become a world champion.”

Since making his pro debut in November 2007 on the undercard of Cotto vs. Mosely, Faragon has been extremely impressive while tearing through his first 15 professional opponents. He fights with power in either hand, but is best-known for his agility and poise, especially on the inside.

Faragon is managed by Stan Hoffman, who has guided the careers of over 31 world champions including Hasim “The Rock” Rahman. “With GCP as his promoter and Stan Hoffman for his manager, Michael now has a team in place that will definitely give him a leg up on the competition,” said Cohen. “He’s a fan favorite in New York and that will quickly spread to the rest of the world, as we guide him to the top of boxing. We’re looking forward to helping him build himself into one of the next generation of champions.”

Cohen admits he is counting on Faragon and a few of his other young pros to carry the company name into boxing’s future. “We’ve got James Toney and Hasim Rahman and some other fighters who are making a splash on the boxing world right now,” he explains, “but the next wave of GCP fighters will be lead by kids like Michael Faragon. He may have come from a rough background, but he’s got the world laid out in front of him now and all he has to do is carry through with his enormous potential.”

Hoffman, whose track record for spotting and developing talent is impeccable, says he is eager to introduce his latest “future star” to the world. “He may look like a choir boy, but this kid can really fight. He’s got a tremendous story of overcoming adversity and a genuinely good heart even after all he’s been through. It won’t be long now and he’ll be starring on the HBOs and Showtimes. He’s all-action when he fights and the fans are going to love him.”
