He got a NFL tryouts with the Buffalo Bills and Cardinals, he didn’t make the teams but the experience was greater. He fought amateur for 2 years then went pro in 2010 as a heavyweight. In 2015 his pro boxing career got cut short due to a car accident. His pro career 3-2-1 he felt in his heart to pursue as a coach, since he couldn’t fight anymore.
My name is Wayne Major started boxing back in 2006 at Mr. Robertson’s Altoona Boxing Club began working with Jeremiah Witherspoon (spoon) who was a amateur fighter at the time Mr. Robertson liked my training techniques so I began training Mr. Robertson’s amateurs also since i have worked with countless amateurs trained with Spoon thru his amateur career as well as his pro bouts and also was present thru Spoons transition into his own boxing club Scorchin Boxing.
My name is Marcelino Flores. I am 41 years old. I have about 310 amateur flights. I only lost about 25 of those I went pro at the age of 22. I had 5 professional fights and only lost 1. I was golden gloves champion in 1997, 1998, and 1999. I have been training at Scorchin boxing for 3 years and its been nothing but the best. I enjoy how happy people look when they learn new things that they thought they couldn’t do. I also enjoy keeping kids off the street and helping them to realize they can be somebody in life.
My name is Stacey Bassett. I am a Boxing and Flexibility/Stretching instructor at Scorchin Boxing Gym.
Ballet/Pointe Instructor with over 30 years of Boxing/Fitness, 6 years Flexibility/Stretching. Flexibility/Stretching are a fundamental aspect for every fighter. I’ve been working with professional and amateurs to improve footwork, coordination, and longevity in their ability to move during a fight. Flexibility is so important for a fighter to be light on their feet and have less injuries. I coach the kids class and teach the value of flexibility and stretching as well.
