Trevor McCumby, Jimenez and Juarez Sign With Dunkin
By Rick Reeno
Manager Cameron Dunkin has signed a string of young boxing prospects in the last couple of days. Among them, is 17-year-old light heavyweight Trevor McCumby of Yorkville, Ill. Last month, McCumby dominated the competition to win the Under-19 National Championships in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Dunkin also picked up junior featherweight Alex "Lil Kaboom" Jimenez (1-0, 0KOs) from Perris, California, and 24-year-old junior flyweight Austreberto Juarez (8-0, 2KOs) of Ventura, California. The fighters are reportedly heading to TKO Promotions.
Some of the fighters in Dunkin's stable include Kelly Pavlik, Timothy Bradley, Nonito Donaire, Sergio Mora, James Kirkland, Omar Henry and Mikael Zewski.
McCumby is a dynamic force in the ring. Im excited to see this young prospect succeed. He has been around the sport for a while. I remember him from the Silver Glove days, all the way up to now winning…Comment by eddied on 03-16-2010
Ive Refereed in Chicago for years and saw this kid win numerous Chicago Park District Championships, Last month watched him beat the defending Chicago Golden Gloves Champion. I think this is what seperates this Dunkin guy from other managers. :boxing:Comment by oldschool1 on 03-15-2010
