Manager Cameron Dunkin has just recently added to his vast stable of fighters - which already includes the likes of Terence Crawford, Brandon Rios and Nonito Donaire.
"John Joe Nevin, Olympic silver medalist from Ireland. He lost to Luke Campbell of England in the finals in London," said an excited Dunkin to BoxingScene.com on Tuesday afternoon.
"He's 3-0, 2 knockouts. Tom Moran and 'Bozzy' Ennis, the trainer in Philly brought him to me and I'm really excited about working with this guy. He can fight, he's a great kid. He really wants to get going, he wants to fight all the time, he wants to stay in the ring."
Nevin is scheduled to fight on August 25th in Coney Island (New York) at MCU Park.
The native of Ireland has moved to the States to pursue his professional dreams.
"He's living in Philadelphia, we moved him there," said Dunkin. "I have two more fights set up for him, we've got New York on the 25th, then I got a fight for him in Boston and I got a fight for him in Virginia and then I'm going to find another one for him in the next few days."
For the time being, Dunkin has not signed Nevin to any promoter.
