VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Dorin Spivey has been in professional boxing for so long he's got not one, but two nicknames.
Once the Destroyer, he now goes by "Dangerous Dorin Spivey".
"I've seen it all in boxing. The good, the bad, you name it."
At 39 years old, the Portsmouth native has been boxing professionally for 20 years.
He currently holds two titles and will put his NABA Lightweight title on the line October 12 in Atlantic City against a much younger Rod Salka.
"Here's the unfair part, he's seen all types of video of me and I can't find a single one of him. But I will not let that discourage me because I can adjust to whoever I fight."
Spivey trains at Wareings Gym in Virginia Beach. John Hunter and Jake Wareing keep a close eye on his every move, but the two trainers say, Spivey is a physical marvel.
"There is just something about him. He has a tremendous will to win. He's in the best shape of his life. Remember, he began his career without fighting amateur."
With a record of 41 wins and 6 losses, 30 wins by knockout, Spivey knows his way around the ring. And he's quick to point out that he's nearing the end of the line in his boxing career.
"I would like to fight one or two more years and then ride off into the sunset."
