No Limit Mindset announced the signing of welterweight Clarence Booth to an exclusive managerial contract. Booth, of St. Petersburg, Florida has a record of 17-4 with 9 knockouts. He turned pro in 2011, and has wins over Anthony Mercado (10-2), Luis Joel Gonzalez (11-2-1) and Marco Antonio Lopez (24-7). His four losses came against former champion Sergey Lipinets and decisions against Alex Saucedo, Maxim Dadashev and Cletus Seldin. Booth, promoted by King's Promotions, will begin training under Hall of Fame trainer Buddy McGirt.
A change in training camps is also what No Limit Mindset's Shane Shapiro believes will lead to a new and improved Clarence Booth. "Clarence and I met while he served as Sergey Lipinets main sparring partner for his fight against Lamont Peterson. Clarence is a real fighter. He lives in the gym and doesn't ask for much. One thing that Clarence and I both agreed on is the fact that since I am based out of Los Angeles, taking advantage of the quality sparring available out here will really make a difference in his fights, which is something he didn't always have. I believe that with a change in training environment and better sparring this will result in even better performances from Clarence Booth inside the ring in future fights."
"In my opinion, Buddy McGirt is the best trainer in all of boxing, the job he's doing with all of his fighters speaks for itself. Buddy trains one of my other fighters Cem Kilic (13-0) and I have seen first hand what he will be able to bring to Clarence's natural skill set! A happy fighter is a dangerous fighter."
Booth will also begin training under Hall of Fame trainer Buddy McGirt, which Shapiro believes will is the best change of all.
