Damon Feldman Profile: King of the D-List

How self-promoting promoter Damon Feldman turned Philly into the pseudo-celebrity boxing capital of the world

Two days later, Feldman takes stock. The crowd could have been bigger, he says: “I think what happened was the date change at the last minute. We had a couple hundred calls Saturday because the tickets still said Saturday.” Still, he was happy with the media coverage. “It was all over the place today. Daily News, New York Post, TMZ.”

He’s ready for more. Coming up: Joey Buttafuoco vs. Amy Fisher’s husband. “I’m good at what I do,” he says. “Not good. I’m great. Not to be arrogant. But I know what I’m doing – except I’m not good with the business sense of it. I’m good with getting the people, putting a good show on.”

Over the summer, Feldman made a promising contact, with a representative for Carl Weathers, the actor who played Apollo Creed in Rocky. Well, not quite: It turned out the guy didn’t really rep Weathers. But it got Feldman dreaming. Maybe Feldman will be the guy to bring the Philadelphia celebrity boxing story to a mind-bending full circle. “My goal is to get Sylvester Stallone in the ring,” he says. “Don’t count me out yet.”
