Jonathan Casimere's Fight to the Top

A motivational speaker once said, when you want to succeed, as bad as you want to breath, then you'll be successful. Well you can surely apply that mindset to Jonathan Casimere, a local undefeated boxer, whose drive is fueled by the desire to be number one and the love for a sport that's been around since childhood.

     Casimere trains at Daley's Gym, an establishment that's been around for over 100 years in different cities and spans 5 generations of Daley Fighters. Phil Daley, the owner of the gym, has been around some of the best boxers in the world in his 50 years in the sport and says Casimere possesses a key quality to rise to the top.

     Now this confident camp has reason to be that way. As Casimere boasts a 4-0 record in his young career with 3 knockouts. This rising star realizes he's far away from being a world champ, but has no fear that he wont one day reach that goal.
