The former boxing ‘Golden Boy’ has been a keen businessman for a long time.

His Golden Boy Promotions went in to buy a stake in the MLS franchise back in 2007 and succeeded.

Since then the team has grown and he’s fulfilled his promise to help find a stadium specifically for the team by building a new one and paying half the costs.
