NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OpeningRound.com, the popular, fully responsive mobile-friendly website focused on younger, casual fight fans of boxing, today announced it has had over 3 million unique visitors (5.5 million sessions) with an average of between 350,000-500,000 unique visitors per month. Beginning from a small idea that soft launched in September 2014, the boxing-focused online destination has become the go-to source for major boxing news and content.
"When I started getting credentialed to cover fights around December 2013 for the first website I operated, a basic young men's website, I noticed that there was a gap in the marketplace with fresh boxing content geared towards younger, more casual fans,” said Bobby Samuels, founder of OpeningRound.com. “Many boxing sites, while excellent news sources, failed to reach younger fans that utilize mobile technology for Internet consumption. I felt that if I could rebrand the website to be fully focused on boxing content that is visually stimulating and mobile-friendly layout, I could effectively reach the new generation of fight fans.”
Since in January 2015, OpeningRound.com’s presence has continued to expand, building a large and vibrant social media presence. Currently, the website is pushing over 100K Facebook likes and has over 24K Twitter followers. OpeningRound has an active presence on Instagram, especially before and after big fights. The site has also developed a strong following in The Philippines, ranking as one of the top 10,000 sites in the country according to Alexa metrics.
OpeningRound.com, is owned and overseen by CEO and Founder Bobby Samuels, and also employs several freelance writers, as well as a video team, covering fights on location at venues including the Barclays Center, Madison Square Garden, MGM Grand, and Alamo Dome.
