Salute to an American Boxing Champion -Brandon "Big Bear" Spencer

This July the American Boxing Association would like to salute a true under dog. Brandon "Big Bear" Spencer

Big Bear is an inspiration in and out of the ring. His comeback story and attitude of faithful perseverance of life's trials and tribulations inspires his fans across the Southern United States but before long he will be joined by champions of other regions. Brandon will have to see what it takes to be a American National Boxing Champion.

Brandon “Big Bear” Spencer’s dream to become a professional boxer started on Tuesday, November 28, 1995. That day the Augusta, GA native watched in awe as Vernon Forrest Fought at the Bell Auditorium. Growing up as a kid, Big Bear wasn’t allowed to join the Augusta Boxing Club because his parents were overprotective. That didn’t stop him from pursuing his dream. Big Bear also grew up in a rough neighborhood, Barton Village, where he would fight at least once or twice a week. At the age of 21, George Dean posed the question to Spencer, “what did you want to do with your life?” At that moment, Big Bear realized that his desire to become a professional boxer never went away. The very next day, he started boxing training. His first time fighting, he competed in the Georgia game which was a 2 day boxing tournament in 2006. Big Bear won the gold medal. He knew then that he could really do this. Big Bear was so eager to jump in the professional ranks. Although he had no real knowledge of professional boxing, in 2011 he won his debut fight by KO in 13 seconds in the 1st round. After that his career took a real big hit. On November 14, 2015 he hit rock bottom after losing a fight in his hometown. However, he refused to give up and realized he need a new approach to this fight game. That’s when Mark Greubel reached out to him and said, “you have everything you need to become a world champion; let me train you.” Since then Big Bear has won 7 bouts in a row, starting with the 8 Man Tommy Morrison tournament in Grove, Oklahoma. Competing in his first 10 round fight, Big Bear also defeated Miree “Pink Panther” Coleman for the American Boxing Association Regional Heavyweight Title on May 6, 2017. Here he stands today, making the biggest comeback in heavyweight boxing history.

I just want to let y'all know that l have been thru so much in my life from assassination attempts on my life, dodging life sentences, losses in my boxing career, and being at rock bottom. At the end of the day, l don't look like what l have been thru, and l am doing great in my life. Moral of the Story when God has a plan for your life, its nothing the devil can do to stop it.

"The Devil thought he had me." - Brandon Spencer
