Top Rank Signs David Kaminsky
At the age of 17, David is a sensational prospect at 154 pounds. A former amateur standout, he finished his amateur career in June, 2017, and recently signed a promotional contract with Top Rank.
David said, “I train at the Sport Club Gym in Reseda, California. It’s my dad’s gym. My training camp for this fight will be 10 weeks.
“I’ve been training three times a day for four years now. I never went to traditional high school. I do home school, so training doesn’t get in the way of my education. I’ve been doing that for three years now. I’m a junior in high school – 11th grade – so I have another year and a half left.
“I’ve been sparring pros since the age of 14, nonstop. I was Viktor Postol’s official sparring partner for six weeks for his fight against Terence Crawford. That was at the Wild Card. I’ve sparred many greats, like Shane Mosley, I sparred the current IBF champion Sergei Lipinets. I sparred Ivan Redkach, and I sparred Radzhab Butaev.
“I can do every different style for every different fighter. Once I step in the ring, I pick up a style right away. Me and my dad have been working for so many years, and we pick up styles from different types of fighters. So, if I need to be slick, I can be slick. If I need pressure, I can use pressure. If I need to move on my feet, I move on my feet.
“But I do have a punch. I don’t really like speed, but I like to hit with power.”
