Boxing has been my life since I was an infant. My father was a professional heavyweight and I tagged along to boxing gyms learning the “sweet science.” Despite my father’s attempt to protect me from the sport it was inevitable that boxing beckoned me. My father helped launch my amateur career, due to my persistence, in 1995 and I went on to became a 3 time state amateur champion.

In 2002 I turned pro and only three months into my career I suffered an injury to my right shoulder during a fight. I would need reconstructive surgery and would take three years later to make my comeback.

I reached the pinnacle of my career in 2011 winning five straight fights. This led me to a showdown with current IBO light heavyweight champion of the world, Andrzej Fonfara. That was followed by fighting for the Fl state super middleweight title against Jose Alonso.

10 days before that title fight, My son was born and since that fight I vowed to “hang them up.” I’ve stuck to my guns and now enjoy training people for fitness as well as training amateur and professional fighters.

I opened our current location in 2009 with my wife Kelli and together we offer the greatest and most unique atmosphere and workout found in Sarasota, FL.
