Split-T Management has inked an exclusive management contract with the remarkable 20-year-old talent, Donte Layne. Hailing from Elmont, New York, Layne’s passion for the sport was ignited at a tender age, when he became enamored with the backyard fights his family hosted. Young Layne’s desire to hit the gym and box professionally was born from those lively gatherings.
With an 85-fight amateur career that boasts an impressive 74-11 record, Layne has proven he’s no ordinary boxer. His trophy cabinet gleams with victories at the 2015 and 2017 Junior Olympics, a 2017 Silver Gloves title, and no fewer than four U.S. National titles. Among those crowning achievements are the 2021 Elite National Championship and the 2022 Elite National Golden Gloves and National Championship.
Competing at 165 pounds, Layne’s ready to bring his distinctive style and formidable talent to the professional super middleweight category.
Excitement is in Layne’s voice as he shares, “Signing with Split-T Management isn’t just a step, it’s a leap in my career. I’m ready to show the world who I am. My elite amateur days were just the beginning; now, I’m going to take the professional world by storm.”
As for Layne’s highly anticipated professional debut? Mark your calendars for August 25th. He’s already hard at work, training diligently in camp, focusing on mastering distance and head movement. “I’m ready to put on a show on August 25th,” he confidently proclaims, setting the stage for what promises to be an electrifying performance.
Standing tall at 6’1″, Layne’s training is guided by the experienced hands of Anthony Santiago and Kenyatta Harris. With their combined expertise and Layne’s raw talent and determination, the boxing world should prepare for a new superstar.
