At the age of 23, Trevor is a five-year pro. A rising young contender at 175 pounds, he was an accomplished amateur.
He is a stablemate of the Boxing Writers Association of America’s “2014 Fighter of the Year” Terence Crawford and the BWAA “2012 Fighter of the Year” Nonito Donaire – all three are managed by Cameron Dunkin.
Trevor stayed active with five fights in 2014 and three in 2015, and made good progress – he stepped up in class of opposition, gave impressive performances, and broke into the Top 10 world ratings.
In his last fight on August 6 in Tucson, Arizona, Trevor won by fourth-round TKO against Dion Savage.
SecondsOut.com’s Ron Valderrama reported from ringside [excerpts]: Dion Savage traded blows with Valley favorite Trevor McCumby in a scheduled 8-round bout.
McCumby slowly punished Savage in the early rounds, but credit Savage for putting up a decent fight as he constantly kept moving forward.
In round four, Savage had a point deducted for repeated low blows and finally was unable to continue at the conclusion of round four after being schooled by McCumby. [End Valderrama item]
