Las Vegas, NV
Kevin Newman II was born on December 2, 1991 in Los Angeles, California. Newman was introduced to the sport of boxing at the early age of 3 when his mother gave him his first pair of boxing gloves that read “Boom” on one and “Pow” on the other. He went around throwing punches at walls, stuffed animals, and pillows. At this point his father decided it was time for him to take on a heavy bag. Newman officially took up the sport at the age of 9 when he moved to Las Vegas—the boxing capital of the world.
Newman immediately began training with Jeff Mayweather at a local gym. He later went on to train at the famed Mayweather Boxing Club in 2009. Throughout 2013 his reign of victories continued as he was crowned the champion of the Golden Gloves and USA tournaments—winning the state title for 3 years in a row 2011-2013. Having 30 fights as an amateur with a record of 25-5, Newman proved to be an unstoppable force when going against the odds and overcoming any obstacles in his path. Newman’s talent didn’t go unnoticed by Floyd Mayweather, he eventually offered Newman a contract to join the growing stable of Mayweather Promotions’ fighters in the summer of 2014.
