888poker new ambassador, sure to bring new surprises for the community, also in its anniversary of the room as not celebrate big, this kind of news makes the community more known level, and that many players enter.
This must be celebrated properly and 888 is doing a good thing for its platform in this industry. 888 poker will have to introduce this world boxing champion, in the world of poker and he can become a good preacher in advertising for the platform where he became ambassador.
now every poker site want some ex sports players or somebody who still is in football,basketball or an sport!we will see what this will bring to 888 and their whole business,to have ex boxer in this kind of game and that he promote them!I dont know much about him,so dont know will this be good or bad!
many ambassadors for poker rooms and this can be a disadvantage for players. I would prefer them to come from among the players and make a nice advertisement because they are good at poker. That would be better for them because those good players can benefit from their poker talk.
