Sugar Bert began boxing as a young adult. in the sunny state of Florida. His skills and dedication led him to winning the Golden Gloves and the opportunity to train with super stars like Sugar Ray Leonard, and Treveor Berbick. Shortly after Sugar Bert moved to Georgia to further his boxing career his daughter was born. Her birth made him focus more on being a father and a provider, and less on being a boxer. Soon after, Bert hung up the gloves.
Sugar Bert Boxing Promotions recently announced its future plans to expand nationally starting in 2016 to over 100 cities! In partnership with our sponsors, we will be taking our amateur events to four different cities annually for the National Qualifier Championships which will advance to the Sugar Bert Boxing Promotions National Championship with the awarded destination at the end of each year.
Headquartered in Atlanta Georgia, the Sugar Bert Boxing Promotions National Qualifiers and Championships, will attract thousands of amateur boxers, coaches, and families annually for years to come. We look to increase exposure to up and coming amateur boxers.
Boxing Legend - Evander Holyfield
"I truly believe that the fighters of today don't fight as often as we did when we were amateur, which made us better, seasoned fighters. Now Sugar Bert has come in with something to give fighters more opportunitites and experience. You can't come in to professional boxing with only 10 amateur fights. I fought 164 fights as an amateur before I turned professional. People ask me "how did you become so great?", amateur boxing!" -Evander Holyfield
USA Boxing President - John Brown
"This is an incredible undertaking by Sugar Bert. His tournaments bring fighters in from all over the country, so they're able to offer the best competition out there!" -John Brown
USA Boxing VP - DJ Walton
"The thing about Sugar Bert Boxing is bringing people in from all over the nation, giving them an opportunity to compete for a belt. Also, being able to expose amateurs to different kinds of styles, coaching, venues, and cities. SBBP tournaments are well administered and very professionally ran. Without events, we don't have a sport. There are a hand-full of tournaments that these kids can compete at, and Sugar Bert has 3-4 happening each year. Such an incredible achievement by Sugar Bert!" -DJ Walton
