BIOGRAPHY

Bryan Colwell (born October 31, 1989) is the current Canadian Amateur Heavyweight Boxing Champion. Weighing in at 91kg (201lbs) Bryan’s athletic journey didn’t begin in the ring however. Originally from Fort St. John British Columbia, Bryan grew up playing soccer and upon graduation from high school moved to Victoria to attend the University of Victoria and earn a scholarship playing on their soccer team. Before tryouts Bryan was told that while his skill was sufficient to garner a spot on the team, his fitness would need to be improved.

Bryan’s solution to this quandary led him to Island Mixed Martial Arts training facility to enroll in their combat cardio conditioning classes. His first class was a boxing lesson and the next morning he cancelled his UVIC tryout; he knew he never wanted to play soccer again. Bryan had found his true calling.

Bryan’s combat sport career also didn’t start in the boxing ring, but rather in a myriad of local combat sport competitions including kickboxing and grappling tournaments. As his skills progressed, Bryan started to move away from grappling and focusing on stand up combat sports first by capturing both local kickboxing and boxing titles. When his success demanded a more direct focal point of his abilities and attention, Bryan settled on boxing and entered into the Boxing BC program with the goal of making the national team and representing Canada on the international scene. Three years later he achieved his goal and secured a spot on the Canadian National Boxing team with the new ambition of competing at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

During his time competing Bryan has also completed a Business Administration certificate from Camosun college in Victoria, BC. While training full time in Montreal for the national team’s centralization process, Bryan continued his post secondary education successfully and garnered the achievement of The Golden Key Award, completing his courses within the top 15% of his class. In addition to his training and studies, Bryan always seeks to give back to the community through boxing including coaching the Fight For a Cause Charity boxing gala for the last several years.
