The Premier Management Firm in Boxing

Split-T Boxing is the leading management firm in the sport of boxing today. Founded in 2015 by CEO David McWater, Split-T Boxing quickly ascended to the top of the sport – just as McWater had done previously in the hospitality and entertainment world in NYC in the 1990s, helping to establish the Lower East Side as a premier nightlife destination.  Soon after opening his first tavern in 1992, McWater amassed more than 16 establishments, branched into city politics and became a NYC community leader.  Split-T Boxing has experienced similarly exponential growth and within five years represents some of the the leading athletes in the world, including superstar and former Undisputed Lightweight Champion Teofimo Lopez, former IBF Junior Welterweight World Champion Ivan Baranchyk, and numerous rising contenders such as Heavyweight Stephan Shaw and Super Featherweight Abraham Nova.

Our loyal team offers unparalleled expertise and dedication to our clients. Our main goal is to put our clients in the absolute best position for success day in and day out. To accomplish this, we have built a dynamic group with significant experience in all aspects of the fight game – as athletes, promoters, state athletic commission members, matchmakers, trainers, lawyers and, of course, as managers / agents. This dedicated and diverse team is deeply committed to the sport. Most have been a part of the industry for the majority of their lives, with well over a century of experience amongst the team. Our group combines the right blend of brainpower, creativity, and a fighters mentality to not only to predict tomorrow’s champions, but to constantly produce and perform for the best clientele in boxing. The synergy of talent both in and out of the ring has led Split-T to become what it is today – the Premier Management Firm in Boxing.

At Split-T Boxing, Our Team is:

Client Driven

We understand that each client is a unique individual and must be treated as such. We use our knowledge and experience to develop a specific game plan to build each athlete’s career – implementing precise methods at each step based on our client’s individual goals and maturation process as a professional athlete and individual. While business negotiations, bout-by-bout career maneuvering, procuring sponsorships, monitoring training and expanding the public profile of our clients are a very important part of our role as managers, we put an added emphasis on cultivating a Split-T Family with a hands-on approach to building lasting, meaningful relationships with our budding stars. This holistic approach has allowed us to garner the most talented young core in boxing today.

Our Scouting Methodology is:

Amateur Focused

Year after year Split-T Boxing separates itself from the pack through our deep commitment and support of the amateur program. We understand that every athlete starts somewhere and for most aspiring champions this begins in the amateurs. Split-T has developed a cutting edge scouting system combining boxing analytics and traditional evaluation techniques to better project our boxers futures. We have a presence at every major national tournament, as well as at many of the state and regional events. It is our belief that this dedication to the amateur system is paramount to our continued success in identifying future champions.  This commitment to the amateurs stems from out understanding that no one starts on top. We all must climb the mountain together.  Split- T wants to help guide you on this incredible journey.
