Cameron Dunkin, best known for guiding the likes of Kelly Pavlik, Stevie Johnston, Nonito Donaire and Terence Crawford, among many other world champions has a new roster of up-and-comers that he's moving up the ranks.
"I've got a few guys fighting in Mexico and of course, I've got (Jaron) 'Boots' Ennis in Virginia and so I've got four guys fighting this weekend," he told BoxingScene.com.
Going down the list of his boxers who are in action, Dunkin starts with his junior welterweight."Brian Norman, the young guy from Lethonia, Georgia, who I'm really, really, really excited about. He's 3-0 with three first round knockouts, he's a 140-pounder, right-handed and just 17 years old. He's a baby. He's very fast and hits unbelievably hard."
Then there is junior middleweight Zsolt Daranyi.
"He's 13-0 with 12 knockouts and I'm just keeping him busy and I'm putting him in training camp and so he's coming down to fight and then off to camp and start to get ready to fight somebody. He's 6'2, right-handed and he can crack,"said Dunkin.
"And there's Christ Montano, 4-0 with four first round knockouts, tremendous talent,"said Dunkin of his young cruiserweight."Everybody is just raving about him, nobody wants to fight him in Texas. It's even hard for him to get sparring and he's only 19 years old."
Ennis, a welterweight, could be the best young talent Dunkin has signed since Crawford. This weekend he fights at the Masonic Temple in Norfolk versus veteran Samuel Amoako. Dunkin states - "he's a tremendous talent and this is his 19th fight already and he's only been a pro like 22, 23 months. We've got him scheduled to fight again June 1st. I can put him on in New Jersey and we can do like a minor title, the USBA or something like that."
Dunkin says, "I'm telling you I've got the fighters, I've just got to get them on TV somewhere."
