Light middleweight fighter who turned professional in August, 2001, and fell just a few months shy of lasting a decade without defeat, suffering his first loss in April, 2011.
He won four consecutive Silver Gloves as an amateur, but elected to turn professional rather than fight in the Olympics, because he wanted to support his family.
His otherwise dominant career has been interrupted by legal troubles, including an 18-month jail sentence.
He was born in Austin, Texas.
In 2013 he signed with rapper-turned-promoter 50 Cent.
