The following years is what made a big difference for the Beltway Boxing scene. The area promoters used that 2011 Golden Boy event to rejuvenate this area to showcase the talent that was already here. This area has many fighters that consecutively won National Golden Gloves Championships from 2010 - 2014. Those same fighters decided to make their professional debuts after the Peterson victory over Amir Khan. The progression that those fighters have taken has been noticed by the top promoters and managers in the "business" of boxing. Most of the fighters in the Beltway Boxing area have become part of either the Golden Boy, Top Rank, Al Haymon, DiBella Entertainment, and King's Promotion boxing organizations.
This area has not only produced some of the most talented male boxers in the world. There are some of the most talented female boxers in the world that live here also. This is on both the amateur and professional side of boxing, past and present. The most current standout is multiple championship title holder Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson. Nelson is ranked # 1 in the IBE, #2 WBA, and #5 WBC.
