During the coming months, we’ll be highlighting our fighters in training for the upcoming Rumble in the Rockies III in Denver on June 11th. They’ve committed to four months of fundraising and training in preparation to get in the ring and literally fight for a cure. Whether their mom is battling, their father has passed or their friend has put up a victory against the disease – they’ve all got a story to tell and they’ve all got a reason to fight. Below you’ll hear from Scott McDowell, fighting out of Touch of Sleep.

Where are you from?
Baltimore, Maryland

Where’d you go to college?
Essex Community College/UMBC

Did you play any sports growing up?
Lacrosse, Football and Track

What do you do for work?
Advertising/Sponsorship marketing

Why boxing? Did you ever picture yourself fighting?
I attend H4H in Denver in 2019 to support a fighter Danny Schaffer and was blown away by the production. After looking more into H4H and the organizations its supports I was all in and ready to fight and raise money to KO cancer!

Why on earth did you sign up to fight??
First and Foremost to support the cause of raising money to support the H4H beneficiaries and secondly I was looking for something unique to whip my butt into shape!!

You’re stepping in the ring to literally fight for a cure - where are you drawing your inspiration from? How has cancer affected you?
After researching that over 1600 people per day die from Cancer I felt intrigued to help bring awareness and resources to the ultimate cause of ending this awful disease!!

What is going to be the most difficult thing to give up during your training? (beer, cheeseburgers, time spent watching TV?)
My overall diet is going to my biggest struggle, I love all bad sugar things!

When you’re not throwing punches and training -- what other hobbies/interests do you have?
I enjoy attending art openings, concerts and spending time with my dog Meatball.

Who do you think is the most excited to watch you get punched in the face come fight night?
Everyone!!! There may be a couple ex-girlfriends that will be extra excited tho.

Check out his fundraising page and be sure to wish him luck! Best of luck, Scott!
