Shane Shapiro's No Limit Mindset LLC. is pleased to announce the re-signing of undefeated super middleweight prospect Cem Kilic to an exclusive managerial contract.
The 23 year-old Kilic, of Frankfurt, Germany, has a professional record of 8-0 with five knockouts following an outstanding amateur career.
Kilic came to the United States and lived with Shapiro, so the relationship between the two is deep rooted.
"I am thrilled to resign Cem to a new five-year contract as he was the first fighter I started with when I began managing fighters back in 2014," said Shapiro. "Cem is not only my fighter but a brother to me. His talent speaks for itself and I know in my heart that he will become a world champion very soon.
"He has sparred with former and current world champions and has always held his own. I am a big believer in loyalty and with his resigning, this shows his commitment to me as his manager."
"When I decided to leave my family and home behind in Germany, I was a total outsider to America and the pro boxing world," said Kilic. " Shane gave me an opportunity that no one else would ever give me, he gave me the chance to pursue my dreams of becoming a world champion in America.
"Shane has always stayed by my side through all the ups and downs and resigning with him is only a small token of my appreciation for all that he has given me. Shane is one of the best managers in the sport of Boxing, someone who gives his all to his fighters, is trustworthy, and has always believed in me. We are one step closer to the top!"
Kilic has stopped his last three opponents, with two coming this year. In his latest outing, Kilic stopped Keith Collins in two rounds on July 29 in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Kilic is promoted by Greg Cohen Promotions, and his next bout will be announced shortly.
