If you ask Bigg Ron why he trains, he puts it very simply. He is an athlete and for the most part a warrior. Ronnell found his love for boxing at the age of six. Between the ages of 10 and 12, he got a little closer to the fight game watching some of the neighborhood Golden Glove champs at Kings Court grounds on 55th & Prospect in Kansas City. Not quite a community center but everybody in the hood either played ball or boxed on Friday Fight Night at the Courts.
Ronnell began boxing for Golden Gloves at 17, winning several smokers and four straight Golden Glove championships as a super heavyweight qualifying him to represent Kansas City on the K.C. National Team three years straight, only loosing three bouts in the national tournaments.
After his final amateur national bout in 1993, Bigg Ron decided to turn professional. He traveled for more experience working with several contenders as well as world champions, learning more and more about the business. Later he became a boxing coach.
“I never figured I would coach, it just fell in my lap. I used to teach boxing in the neighborhood to kids so they could defend themselves. My theory was always if you can fight, people won't usually try you. If you can fight you have nothing to prove to yourself," says Bigg Ron. “Most guys are reluctant to take chances. Who would take the chance knowing you fight because you love it, and you're good at it? For me, boxing is spiritual; it trains my mind, body and soul all in one.”
Ronnell started his own boxing fight team called "Pound 4 Pound Elite Boxing & Training Academy," and he currently donates some of his time to coach the Kansas City Police Athletic League. Now this USA Amateur and professional boxing trainer is a boxing instructor at TITLE Boxing Club at 76th & State Line in Prairie Village, Ks.
You can capitalize on Ronnell's experience and technique, and hard hitting conditioning in his Power Hour boxing classes. Bigg Ron is very technical on Olympic-style boxing and his theory is boxing, chess and life have the same concept—to succeed you need a solid game plan—to succeed you must make proper decisions and you have to go hard or go home. No matter what the level of training or ability, Ronnell can give people what they need to get the results they want.
You can find your inner athlete with Bigg Ron in either his Power Hour boxing class or in a personal training session. You might just find you, too, have a warrior trapped inside just waiting to be released.
