Australia’s 21-year-old prodigy “The Dynamite Kid” Mitchell Stapleton has not stopped training during the global pandemic and is eager to add to his perfect professional record of two wins with two first round knockouts.
His next outing is said to be in March against the undefeated Ricky Colosimo 4-0 on the undercard to the proposed clash between Tim Tszyu and Dennis Hogan.
“The Dynamite Kid” spoke recently up about his future and the upcoming clash with Colosimo.
“I would love to one day be world champion, and I know my time will come, but as the old saying goes, I have to clean out my backyard first and Ricky is the next step in my plan to get to the top. I respectfully would love to get into a position to challenge IBF Pan Pacific and Australian welterweight titlist Ben Kite," Stapleton said.
"I know my manager Tony Tolj, will get me the opportunities. He’s the best in the world, look at what he and the Moloney twins, Bruno Tarimo, Andres Campos have accomplished. Andrew and Jason are my boxing idols, and to be guided by the same team is an absolute honor, and I’m reading to show the world the 'Dynamite Kid' is ready to bang!"
Leading global boxing manager Tony Tolj gives his thoughts on Stapleton as well.
“Mitchell is a great kid, undefeated as a pro, five time National champion. He’s only 21, but I know the dedication he puts into boxing and his time will come. I’m still in talks to finalize his next fight but I'm sure there will be no issues and I'm looking forward to seeing his next fight against Colosimo, and I’m sure it’s just the start of a big future going forward,” Tolj stated.
