Baron Davis’s impact: Former NBA player Baron Davis is part of the Bull Horn Holdings team. He was a two-time NBA All-Star with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Charlotte Hornets, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks.

What Is The Purpose Of Bull Horn: There are hundreds of SPACs on the market today. Striar said the company first looked to launch a SPAC in 2018.

“We have an extremely well searched team and it was a phenomenal opportunity to bring a company public via SPAC," he said, noting it's common that listing via a SPAC gives a great opportunity to ensure institutional support for a company.

“We were predicting that there will be a massive institutional dollar flowing into the sports and media industry so we thought we wanted to be ahead a little bit,” Striar said.

Competition: There are a lot of different sports-related SPACs out there and they're all related to their target area and their size. Bull Horn has a smaller size of the money raised and the IPO. Benzinga asked Striar how you compete with other sports SPACs that are searching for similar targets.

“We believe structure is more important than the size," he said. "Bull Horn has both the sports and financial relationships for a larger deal size." Also, the company’s purpose is to create growth and new revenue channels as well as and is to make sure that they're a great partner.

BHSE Price Action: Shares of Bull Horn Holdings were down 1.92% at $9.97 at the close Tuesday.
