Background

Hearns began boxing as a teenager at Kronk and Butzel Gym in Detroit. However, his father, a former world champion had him barred from the gyms in order that he would concentrate on his education.

Hearns attended American University where he graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice. During his time at AU he played for the university basketball team, the Eagles.

Following this his father became supportive of his boxing and Hearns Jr. gained a record of 9-1 during his brief amateur career and won the 2004 National Middleweight Championship Title.
