About this pro

Rates are negotiable based on fighter needs. Offer quality training for amateurs and pros. Trained top Phoenix fighter Steve "Packey" Paulsen in his comeback, calling me, "the best trainer I ever had." Worked with Leonidas Thalassites, trainer of Marvin Hagler for 20 years, Hector Camacho (was with Leo for 2 of Hecor's fights), Roberto Duran (was with him for five of his fights, two with Leo), Joel Casamayor (was with Leo for one of his fights). Learned from world class trainers Eddie Futch, Angelo Dundee, Ken Slayton, Sam Solomon, and others. In my hometown of Joliet, IL, learned from National AAU Heavyweight Champion Billy Thompson, who beat Ron Lyle and knocked down George Foreman; and learned from Billy's friend Joe Bennett who was on the 1960 Rome Olympics Team with Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) but Joe broke his thumb, unable to compete. 

Seeing when the fighter "gets it" or executes what was taught.
