Australian Olympian Paul Fleming, a highly-decorated amateur ranked #1 as a featherweight in Australia, has signed with Top Rank. Todd duBoef, president of Top Rank, made the announcement today. Fleming, 20, is very popular in the SunCoast area of Australia. “He’s exciting, a very tough southpaw with a whole lot of pop in his gloves,” said co-manager Cameron Dunkin. Fleming, born in Tully, North Queensland, Australia, had an amateur record of 83-17. He won many gold medals and was only the third Australian fighter to medal (bronze) in the 2006 World Junior Championships. Fleming was the first Australian to win the gold at the Pre-Olympic Chemistry Cup. At Bejing, Fleming lost 13-9 to silver medalist Khedafi Djekkhir of France. Fleming is the only Australian Olympian to sign a contract with a major promotional company. He has a 1-0 professional record.
