Peter Nygård renews support of boxer Taureano Johnson

Falling short of the Beijing Olympic Games medal podium is now behind welterweight amateur boxer Taureano Johnson. Johnson, the highest ranked amateur welterweight in the English speaking Caribbean, is seeking redemption at the 1st International Boxing Association (AIBA) World Cup.

 ABFB President Wellington Miller told The Nassau Guardian that the body would fully support Johnson if the tournament is held. Renewing his support, is Johnson’s chief sponsor, fashion mogul Peter Nygård. Nygård, who began investing in Johnson’s amateur boxing career since 2004 expected him to medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
