All-around boxing aficionado David Selwyn recently received his manager’s license and wasted no time signing on Eileen Miyoko Olszewski, “The Hawaiian Mongoose.” Former Knicks City Dancer, Eileen decided to go from “Eye Candy” to Boxing’s “Candy Girl.” Make no mistake, this little power house means business and with trainer, undefeated professional kick boxer, 26-0, Matthew Olszewski, cut man, “Big” George Mitchell and David Selwyn at the helm, watch out!

Hawaii produces the sweet, beautiful and rare, pineapples, sugar, White Monarch butterflies. But this rough volcanic island mix of rock and rain, sand and sea, waterfalls and flowers brings women’s boxing a tough competitor. With her home-state experiences, running on mountain trails, surfing and swimming, and an incredible amateur record, Eileen now focuses on professional boxing. She ranks 3rd in the NABF at flyweight, and already top ten in the world at Super Flyweight, 112lbs. on Box Rec.

Six time world champion Emile Griffith observes, “She’s damn good, and going places. She’s got what it takes to be a champion.”

A New York City Personal Fitness trainer with a sweetheart personality, Eileen, “The Hawaiian Mongoose,” plans to show the boxing community the meaning of speed, power and tenacious determination.
