With a record of 8-0 (8 KO’s), Sylve will headline the first Most Valuable Prospects event and has already impressed fans by knocking out every opponent he has faced, while also being named a 2022 ESPN Ringside Prospect of the Year. In his last bout as the co-main event of Paul vs Silva, Ashton knocked out his opponent in 61 seconds. Sylve embodies the type of young athlete MVP is looking to highlight during the Most Valuable Prospects series.
Sylve will go head to head with 19 year old Angel Rebollar on May 26 in an 8 round Lightweight (135) bout. Rebollar started boxing at the age of seven and is a former US national amateur champion. As a talented young fighter with a current record of 6-2 (3 KO’s), Rebollar is already battle-tested and is set to take on his seventh consecutive undefeated opponent. He trains under his longtime head trainer, Francisco Sandoval and boxes out of Knockouts Boxing Gym in South Gate, CA.
“Having joined the boxing community in my twenties, I came to realize most professional athletes start training in the ring from the time they can walk,” said Jake Paul, co-founder of Most Valuable Promotions. “It’s incredibly important to me and my team that we offer a platform and the tools necessary to help these young boxers achieve the success they’ve been working towards since they were kids. I was lucky enough to have a solid foundation when I entered boxing because of the people supporting me and our goal with Most Valuable Prospects is to give others the same chance, on a global stage. Amanda and I can’t wait to be ringside on May 26 to cheer on Ashton and the rest of the Most Valuable Prospects.”
“We have a wide array of athletes within the MVP family and our unique ability to market and promote them as individuals proves how different our company truly is,” said Nakisa Bidarian, co-founder of Most Valuable Promotions. “We have the ability to nurture boxing careers no matter what stage they are in and our goal with this series is to identify and elevate the next generation of boxing icons. We want to help build the future of the sport and believe there is immeasurable potential out there. We are thrilled to partner with Boxlab, Caribe Royale Resort, and DAZN on this new series. We look forward to showcasing hot new prospects in boxing in 2023 and beyond.”
“I couldn’t be more excited to be kicking off the Most Valuable Prospects series on DAZN as the headline main event on May 26th in Orlando. I’ve been training hard and I’m looking forward to putting on an entertaining performance for all my fans,” said Ashton Sylve.
“DAZN is looking forward to furthering our relationship with MVP and Jake Paul by providing a platform for more young talents to showcase their boxing skills,” said Joe Markowski, CEO of DAZN North America. “The event on May 26th is going to be the first of a series focused on growing the next generation of boxers live on DAZN.”
“On behalf of the Caribe Royale Resort and Boxlab Promotions we’re excited to be a part of this new series on DAZN,” said Amaury Piedra, Managing Director of Caribe Royale Resort and President of Boxlab Promotions. “Since the moment we started discussing the Most Valuable Prospect Series it became apparent that Nakisa, Jake, myself, and our mutual teams were aligned on a vision and had good chemistry. We’re looking forward to featuring the best young boxers in the world in this series in competitive matches to get them the exposure they deserve at this stage of their careers. This is also part of Caribe Royale’s plan to continue to bring world class entertainment to the guests of our resort and Orlando locals as well so it’s a great fit for everyone. We can’t wait for May 26th!”
