LOS ANGELES (June 3, 2020) – Golden Boy, the leading sports and entertainment brand, is delighted to announce that it has been recognized by the 41st Annual Telly Awards with four wins for productions developed by the company. Now in its third year of entry, Golden Boy has won awards every year, capturing a total of 12 awards since 2018.
The Telly Awards annually showcase the best work created within television and across video, for all screens. Receiving over 12,000 entries, Telly Award winners represent work from some of the most respected advertising agencies, television and cable networks, production companies and publishers from around the world.
“Golden Boy is pushing the boundaries for video and television innovation and creativity at a time when the industry is both rapidly changing and heavily impacted by the current crisis,” said Sabrina Dridje, Managing Director of the Telly Awards. “Our theme for this season, Telly Award Winners Tell Great Stories, is a true reflection of the diversity of stories the community is skillfully able to tell. Now, more than ever, do we need to celebrate them and those that bring global stories to our attention. This award is a tribute to the talent and vision of these creators. “2019 was a banner year for Golden Boy in the original programming category as we enhanced and re-formatted our successful Mano a Mano series for our two mega Canelo Alvarez fights,” said David Tetreault, Executive Vice President of Golden Boy Media and Entertainment. “We also unveiled our new series Off the Canvas, which featured one of our biggest rising stars in Ryan Garcia. We are thrilled to receive the three Gold Telly Awards for these shows as this reflects the hard work and dedication of our incredible team.
2019, Golden Boy developed many innovative projects with its production partner DG Entertainment, including Mano a Mano: Never Back Down, a short-form documentary series previewing the Canelo Alvarez vs. Sergey Kovalev fight which won a Gold Telly Award in Sports Television Production. Similarly, Mano a Mano: Canelo vs. Jacobs, which previewed the historic fight between Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs, also won a Gold Telly Award in Sports Television Production.
