Today, Eric Aiken “Mouse”, 26-year-old Oxon Hill, Maryland native, who on May 13, 2006 won the IBF featherweight title in Boston, Massachusetts against Vaddemir Pereira, has hired local civil rights and entertainment attorney, Jimmy A. Bell to represent him. Aiken, attended Bowie High School (GED ’96) before turning to amateur boxing in 1996. There, Aiken won 7 of his first 8 fights by knockout. Over his amateur career, he went a dominant 92-5 with half of his wins by knockout. His fearsome abilities earned him numerous amateur titles in addition to an impressive record. From 1999-2000, his accolades include the Virginia State Bantamweight Golden Gloves title, the D.C. Bantamweight Golden Gloves title, the Maryland Bantamweight Golden Gloves title, and the USA National Bantamweight Golden Gloves title. In 2001, Aiken turned pro and hasn’t looked back. As a pro, Aiken earned his nickname “Mouse” because of his immense punching power from either hand. That power has helped earn him a record of 16-4 with 12 KOs. His new attorney is a renown litigator who currently represents domestic tae-kwon-do champion Charles Smith.
