Undefeated Super Featherweight prospect Jerry “The Kid” Belmontes has reached an agreement with powerful manager Cameron Dunkin to help guide his career towards a world championship.
Belmontes of Corpus Christi, Texas has compiled a perfect record of 14-0 with five knockouts.
The twenty-two year old turned pro in 2008 at the age of nineteen after a stellar amateur career that included winning regional Golden Gloves; State Golden Gloves; Under-19 tournament wins.
He was a quarter finalist at the United States Championships; Runner up at the 2008 USA World Championships and a semi finalist to qualify for the 2008 Olympic team.
He turned pro on January 18, 2008 with a first round stoppage over undefeated Olvin Mejia (3-0-1).
He was with promotional powerhouse Top Rank for much of his early career and appeared on the big Antonio Margarito – Shane Mosley undercard in Los Angeles as well as getting television time for his wins against Morris Chule (11-9) and Gil Garcia (2-0).
Belmontes is coming off a fourth round stoppage over Eddie Eamirez (5-4-1) on December 10, 2010 in his hometown of Corpus Christie, Texas.
“I am excited to be working with Cameron Dunkin”, said the undefeated Belmontes.
“He works with nothing but the best and his knowledge will help me get to where I want to be and that is knocking on the door of a world championship. To be included with his stable of fighters which includes Timothy Bradley, Nonito Donaire and Kelly Pavlik just to name a few of the countless world champions that Cameron has been a part of just gives me more confidence that I can be there too”
When asked about Belmontes, Dunkin was equally excited about his future prospects.
“Jerry is a great kid and was a terrific amateur”, said Dunkin. “He has shown by being 14-0 that he has all the makings of a bright future. We will look to get him in the right fights on his way to competing for a world championship.”
