Marcus Browne

Staten Island light heavyweight Marcus Browne, a 2012 U.S. Olympian, has signed with the most powerful advisor in boxing, Al Haymon.

 

Browne was the first Atlas Cops & Kids Boxing Program product to compete in the Olympic Games. Browne is a two-time National PAL champion and 2012 USA Boxing National gold medalist who is trained by Gary Stark at the Park Hill Boxing Club,

 

Haymon has also signed Browne’s 2012 U.S. Boxing teammates Terrell Gausha, Dominic Breazeale, Rau’shee Warren and Errol Spence Jr. Haymon’s client list includes Floyd Mayweather Jr., Andre Berto, Adrien Broner, Austin Trout, Peter Quillin, Gary Russell Jr., and Chris Arreola, among the more notables.

 

The Dr. Theodore A. Atlas Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by renowned boxing trainer and television analyst, Teddy Atlas, in his father’s memory. The Atlas Cops & Kids Boxing Program presently operates two gyms, in Park Hill, Staten Island, East Flatbush in Brooklyn and plans to open two more in the Berry Houses in Staten Island, and in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn.

 

“The boxing program is needed for wayward kids with little or no direction,” Atlas continued. “Our gyms give them a place to go for hope; building confidence and making them feel better about themselves. They get the tools there that they need to grow-up and become productive people. It is an important, valuable alternative to violence, crime and drugs. That’s what boxing does like no other sport. It helps kids find themselves. Not only do they discover things that they didn’t know were available to them, they gain pride and confidence in themselves. Our program is a platform for them to have dignity. The Dr. Atlas Foundation has been helping needy people with medical expenses, relocation assistance, and for other areas like that. But violence is a sickness and we’re helping to prevent that with our gyms. I agreed to absorb the boxing program with a twist – education components had to be part of it. We established behavioral rules and conduct with disciplinary consequences. The kids have to keep their grades up if they want to train. Pat Russo did a great job as the PAL boxing program director and he’s continuing to do a great job as the director of our program.”
