Press Release: February 24, 2022 By Brandon Countee – Austin
native and Heavyweight boxer Blair Anderson looks to notch the first win of his
professional career in the first part of the year. Anderson currently sits with
a 0-1 record with his first bout ending in less than a minute in Dallas, Texas.
“I should have turned it down, but I didn’t,” Anderson states about the bout.
“We put in the training, sparring, and all that. I was all nervous about my
first fight, but I thought I was ready. We get to Dallas, and I'm told
immediately the opponent pulled out and I ended up fighting a sparring partner.
We thought about pulling out but went ahead. I had a guy in the ring who knew
my weaknesses and did what he had to do. I got to accept that.” Blaire
understands that in sports you either win or lose. Before transitioning to
boxing, Anderson played basketball at Blinn College. So, he intends to treat
his career not as an individual but as a team initiative. “I got me a good team
at management and my trainer, and I have made some changes to learn and grow
from 2021.” says Blair.

I look like a boxing champion. I am 6’4, handsome, and in great shape and I just need to start my path in 2022. I am a competitor and grew up being one. I got six siblings and played basketball, so I understand that it is not only you out there. I know what it's like to win and what it is like to lose. Not winning sucks, not winning hurts. I am going to move on, and that first bout is a learning experience for the boxing business. It was a surprise. There will be no more surprises.”
