TIGER SMALLS BOXING
The Pride Management Bios
Iris Senibaldi, known as IE, was just a kid in school doing her homework when she wrote a report on “The World’s Youngest Boxer, Tiger Smalls”. Her report impressed her teacher who knew a reporter for the New York Daily News, and sent him a copy. He was equally impressed and the paper ran her story.
Now, two members of the Smalls family had kicked off careers at an early age! Iris is Tiger Smalls’ sister.
Because of her important publication, Tiger had the opportunity to build relationships through numerous all-time greats with strong influences like Jack Dempsey, Jersey Joe Walcott, Ernie Shavers, Archie Moore and Jerry Quarry which ultimately caught the attention to the world’s greatest boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali.
Iris successfully planned and implemented PR strategies to promote her brother in the ring; plus he appeared on various television shows in the 70’s including the local stations, as well as national syndicates like The Regis Philbin Show, The Joe Franklin Show and Wonderama, a long-running children's television program. IE managed Tiger’s boxing career with targeted, creative, and timely strategies from 1993 to 2003, at which time Tiger acted as the exclusive decision maker for the remainder of his pro career.
In 2007 when Tiger created TIGER SMALLS BOXING, his entity to train and promote boxers, IE joined the organization as Chief Advisor. Tiger greatly appreciates and trusts her input.
Serena G. Smalls
Sports Marketing Coordinator
Serena Smalls was introduced to boxing in 2003. Right away she discovered that this is not a bare-knuckle era. The dedication that is customary in boxing is notable. As one of the world's oldest, and most celebrated sports, boxing, has continually been refined and perfected. It provides many benefits and challenges and can potentially turn lives around by providing focus and an outlet for pent up aggression. We hear that people should have a desire, a dream, and a vision. Serena loves the fact that boxers have this in common. It is a beautiful thing.
Serena is as dedicated as any fighter when it comes to doing her part. She writes and distributes press releases and coordinates sports radio and television interviews for members of the TIGER SMALLS BOXING team. She assists with the integration of important events and information into the Tiger Smalls website in order to keep the fans informed. “It is a great feeling and a real pleasure to be part of TIGER SMALLS BOXING”.
