Rising star in the Junior Middleweight division, Dwyke Flemmings Jr., has inked a deal with manager Nirobi Al Pasha, setting the stage for what could be a knockout career.
At just 19 and hailing from Paterson, New Jersey, Flemmings boasts an unblemished record of 4-0, all wins coming by way of knockout.
“Nirobi is the real deal; a grounded guy who I know will take my career to the next level. The man’s got a game plan, and he gives off the same vibes as my dad—makes me feel like I’m part of the family. I see him as a role model and I’m confident we’ll accomplish great feats together,” Flemmings expressed.
Boxing is in Flemmings’ blood. He laced up his first pair of gloves at the tender age of five. “I was literally born into this game. My dad was an amateur boxer, and I’ve been sparring with my older sisters since I was in diapers. I have photos that show me boxing from the time I was just a baby.”
Further adding to his boxing lineage, his great uncle is Rufus Miller, a former professional lightweight who had a respectable record of 13-5-1, including four knockouts.
In his amateur career, Flemmings had 80 fights and took home some serious hardware: a silver medal at the USA Youth National Tournament and another silver in an international contest in Spain. An injury prevented him from competing for the gold.
Flemmings stepped into the pro ring for the first time on Christmas Day 2021, making quick work of George Gathers with a first-round stoppage in Newark, New Jersey. His latest win was a third-round takedown of the previously unbeaten Henry Rivera on July 8th in Atlantic City.
While he dabbled in wrestling during his younger years, Flemmings chose to hang up the singlet in favor of focusing solely on academics and boxing come middle school.
“As for what’s next, I aim to step into the ring about six more times in the coming year and chase down some major regional belts. I’m eyeing a return to action by September,” Flemmings added.
