Romero Duno | Early Life

Ruthless (fully named Ramero Duno) was born on October 14, 1995, under Libra’s sun sign. Similarly, Ramero was born to Nepthalie Duno (father) and Victoria Duno (mother).

Duno was born to a sub-standard family. His father worked very hard to put food on the table for Duno, his sister, and five brothers. In spite of this, his siblings were supporting Romero’s dream of chasing boxing stardom.

Further, Duno’s mother was a housewife, and she never wanted Duno to follow his siblings’ advice and instead get a post-secondary education.

Even though Duno had an average upbringing, he had an amazing childhood because he had many siblings to talk to and play with. Similarly, Duno’s parents always wanted their kids to study well and achieve something in life.

However, both Duno’s parents were against Duno’s boxing career. But Duno was convinced of what he wanted from life.

In order to pursue his dream, one day, the seventeen years old kid packed his bags along with his books, took $60 from his father, and headed towards Tagum City, Philippines bus park.

On the other hand, Duno’s parents thought he was going back to his university to complete his graduation in marketing. But little did they know Duno was going to General Santos City to become a professional boxer.

Furthur, Duno is a natural-born fighter; when Duno was just fourteen years old, he fought with his classmates.

Interestingly, that classmate was a local boxer, and his father was a boxing trainer. Even with all the pieces of training, that boy got beaten by Duno. So, we can say that even before Duno could box, he could fight.

Nonetheless, in 2014 Romero turns into a professional boxer after completing his boxing school. Amazingly, Duno wins his first-ever match, which was against Michael Manambay via TKO.

In Duno’s one interview, he reveals that he had the hardest yet significant matches with Mikhail Aleevex and Christian “Chimpa” Gonzalez in his entire career. As both of these match have taught him various things.

Likewise, to win from Gonzalez, Duno had to use many tactics and play many mind games. It should be noted that Gonzalez was mighty and could easily crush Duno. Similarly, Duno relocates to the Wild Card Gym to train with Rodel Mayol to face Gonzalez.
