The Atlanta Art of Boxing Center is operated by its sole proprietor, Johnny Gant. Gant, a former fighter himself implements the discipline of boxing, as its corner stone to help develop growth in areas such as vocation, social skills, and self-respect among its members.
"Our program is an amalgamation of the Amateur Boxing Association and community environment," said Gant, now 65-years-old. "It will set in motion an avenue for the boxer to channel their interest in boxing and use their skills as they go through life's mazes."
Gant, a welterweight contender, faced the likes of Esteban De Jesus and "Sugar" Ray Leonard in a career that stretched 12 years.
...
Gant called it quits in 1980, amassing a career record of 45-15-3, (26). Only to return to the squared circle 17 years later. The then 48-year-old Gant, dropped an 8 round decision to journeyman Earl Allen of Savannah, Georgia.

"What can I say?," Gant humbly asked. The father of 5, and grandfather of 18, as well as a great-grandfather of 2, lives and breathes the 'Sweet Science'.
"I love the sport," proclaimed Gant. "I am an advocate of the sport."
When you take into consideration that the city of Atlanta has 3 professional sport teams (Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Falcons, and the Atlanta Hawks) it's no surprise that the Baltimore, Maryland native will plug the art of fistic fury as much as much as he can whenever possible.
"Atlanta is a great sports town," Gant would emphasize.

"I am not in favor of capital punishment, but hey, he [Sinkfield] killed a wonderful human being," said Gant, also mentioning that on the 25th it will mark 5 years since the ordeal happened.

Gant is confident that there will be another star to shine bright and put the "Peach State" back on the map. Currently, Gant has a few kids fighting in the novice and open division in the Golden Gloves tournament.
"Look out for Bobby Hornsby," Gant informed Maxboxing, filling us in on his star pupil.
