Troy Dorsey

Eight Time World Boxing and World Kick Boxing Champion, Troy Dorsey, Signs Global Book Deal

VIP Ink Publishing signs former IBF and IBO world boxing champion and world kick boxing champion, Troy Dorsey, for an autobiography. Troy Dorsey is a former professional boxer and martial arts fighter. He is the first man in history to hold world titles in both karate and boxing.

After a brief and successful run as an amateur kick boxer, Dorsey turned professional. He won multiple International and World Kickboxing titles sanctioned by K.I.C.K, ISKA, and WAKO. Milestones of Dorsey’s kickboxing career include: a one sided knockout defeat of highly regarded Santae Wilson for the US, a featherweight championship and his literal destruction of #1 challenger Steve Demechuk. Dorsey would drop Demechuk no less than 6 times before finally knocking his opponent out. Dorsey is widely considered one of full contact kickboxing’s greatest fighters and a much sought after trainer.

In 1985, Dorsey became a professional boxer. As a boxer, Dorsey held the NABF Featherweight Title, IBO Super Featherweight Title and also won the IBF Featherweight World Championship. His style and endurance made him one of the eras most exciting fighters. Troy Dorsey is perhaps best known for two non-stop fights with IBF World Champion Jorge Páez. One fight including a highly controversial decision won by Paez in Dorsey’s first title attempt. Milestones in Dorsey’s boxing career include: brutal battles with Champions Gabriel Ruelas, Manuel Medina, Kevin Kelley, Jesse James Leija, and Tom Johnson, as well as, facing Olympian and future 5 time World Champion Oscar De la Hoya.

Dorsey is best known for his indemonstrable spirit, amazing physical endurance and a propensity to hammer an opponent with a withering constant barrage of punches. His overall aggressiveness and refusal to back down prompted former Featherweight champion, Kevin Kelley, to equate his 12 round decision over Dorsey “Like a night spent in hell!”

Dorsey, like many of his fights, will not hold back punches when he tells all in his up and coming autobiography.
