Canadian Olympian Custio Clayton is the most recent Olympic athlete signed by Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM).

 

A native of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Clayton opened eyes at the London Games in 2012, where he went a fight short of an Olympic medal.

 

In his Olympic journey, he has defeated Mexican Oscar Molina (12-8) and Australian Cameron Hammond (14-11), before losing in the quarter-final controversially (14-14) versus the local favorite and eventual silver medalist, the Welshman Fred Evans.

 

In 2013, the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) ranked him sixth in the world in 69 kg (152 pounds) division.

 

After careful consideration, the 28 year old man then decided to make his backpack in 2014 to settle in Montreal, under the supervision of Daniel Trépanier and Douggy Bernèche, to start his adventure as a pro boxer.
Clayton made his pro debut December 19, 2014, at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, where he won a unanimous decision over Frenchman Sophyan Haoud.

 

Since then, he stopped the durable Mexican Ivan Pereyra, former national French champion Stanislas Salmon, Arturo Gatti’s former sparring partner Hector Munoz and tough as nail Mexican Jose Emilio Perea.

 

In his last outing, July 29th in Quebec City, he won a unanimous decision over Mexicain veteran Silverio Ortiz.

 

Athletic and spectacular, some compare his style to American Timothy Bradley.

 

Evolving in the welterweight (147 pounds) division, possibly the most difficult and most popular category currently in the world of boxing, Custio Clayton has everything it takes to make noise.
