20100618greenhill003Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions is proud to announce the signing of Baltimore-based cruiserweight “Slick” Nick Kisner (13-1-1, 5 KOs) to an exclusive promotional agreement.

23-year-old Kisner began boxing at six years old and was a heavily decorated amateur boxer. He was a three-time National Silver Gloves Champion, a two-time Junior National Golden Gloves Champion, a Junior Olympic Gold Medallist and Ringside World Champion. Kisner also won the Ohio State Fair Championship, the Under-19 National Championship, and a National Pal Champion, where he defeated 2012 Olympian Lenroy Thompson in the finals.

A naturally fluid boxer with superb skills, Kisner is also the youngest boxer in American history (17) to ever win a Men’s National Title in the Heavyweight Division. In 2009 he captured a Silver Medal at the US Men’s National Championships, which won him a position on the USA Men’s International team.

Kisner turned professional in 2010 and has only suffered two setbacks, a controversial draw in the opponent’s hometown and a split decision loss to fellow top prospect Junior Wright in Wright’s hometown of Chicago.

“I’m very happy to add Nick Kisner to the roster,” said Greg Cohen. “He’s a very skilled young man with a bright future in boxing. He’s had a loss and a draw, but both were fights he took in the other guy’s backyard. We’re going to make sure he gets the right fights to truly bring out what a great talent he is in the 200-lb division.”

Kisner’s first appearance under the GCP promotional banner will be announced soon.
