Jason Pettaway is by far the best. Jimmy layne would be #2 There is a lot more good talent outta the Huntington area Thomas miller, Terrance Kelly, Brandon smith, Josh parsons, Jeremy brown. Grandel Childers edsil Cyrus. Bud Waugh. The eaton boys. A lot more not mentioned and even more being fine tuned at this time.

Jimmy layne has a book called the hunger years it's worth checking out. Josh parsons was one fight away from the Olympic team last olympics Thomas miller will be going pro soon. If u haven't seen Pettaway fight yet u better jump on it cause any day now he will be fighting on a larger stage.

Well you need to disrespect Kelly,-and Noah for not helping Jason after the 3rd rnd and stop it, Kelly told Jason to fight this guy on inside, Jason never jab the guy at all , they didn't have nothing set out with a plan to start with! Noah and Kelly at buckeye gym will get alotta fighters hurt! If anyone wanting to box and learn and be protected, go to steve dotsons gym, his fighters fighting in 2 weeks on friday night fights. Watch that fight and see how much better the corner will work. Noah and Kelly don't know nothing bout boxing!

Steve Saunders was probably the best flyweight in AMERICA when he fought.. In my opinion the best fighter out of West Virginia

Steve Saunders missed the 1988 Seoul Olympics by 3 or 4 ounces , he never lost a fight in West Virginia.

Thank you for your kind words. Dwayne has 5 grandsons and 1 granddaughter from his twin daughters. The oldest boys (ages: 14, 14, 12 years) will be visiting Huntington for the first time this summer and are looking forward to learning more about their awesome Grandfather and his amazing career.

Coop was my cousin, in in the family tradition I also have twin boys.... my cousin got me into boxing and I love him so much... I moved to Boston and I would always come back every summer and spend time with my cousin and his twin daughters... all the men in my family are mostly great athletes and Dwayne was my favorite cousin.... through boxing he taught me respect, integrity and the stand your ground..... the same lessons I teach my son's today I miss and love my cousin he was a great boxer, I remember for the hagler Sugar Ray fight that he was a sparring partner..... no disrespect to the other boxers listed I didn't know them. I was a teenager when my cousin was murdered.
