If you are familiar with the rich history of boxing in Cincinnati, Ohio, then you know the water is deep with talent. Cincinnati has remained a spotlight for talented fighters, who have to battle in life to compete in the ring, then skyrocket to superstardom. When you hear boxing in Cincinnati, the first name to come to mind is Adrien Broner, currently . If you reach back into your boxing memory bank then you will remember Ezzard Charles, Aaron Pryor, Timmy Austin, Tony Tubbs, and Billy Joiner. They also had some of the best amateurs turned pro in the world, going to one of the biggest stages in the World: The Olympics. Boxers like Ricardo Williams Jr, Rau’shee Warren, and Dante Craig to name a few. The new amateur talent is off of the richter scales too with boxers like Duke Ragan, and Jermaine Brown. One of the biggest assets that Cincinnati offers, is that the boxers there tend to give back to the community in some way. Whether opening a gym, holding anti-violence summits, punching for peace rallies or coaching. Cincinnati can be a tough city for young people to dwell in, but thanks to all of the wonderful gyms across the city, there is some refuge for the community.

Randall Wyatt the owner of Wyatt promotions is as genuine as you can get, which is shocking in the boxing community. Mr. Wyatt saw a need to help a local gym, and stepped up to the plate so that kids can continue to have longevity in a sport that means a lot to Cincinnati, and to the safety of the community.
