Rances Barthelemy bloodies Denis Shafikov en route to claiming 135-pound world title

Turns out your girlfriend was lying: Size does matter. At least in the sport of boxing, where it pays to have arms as long as your opponent’s legs, especially when you’re trying to fend off a dude coming at you like a bowling ball destined for a strike.

Isiah Thomas intent on putting an American face atop the 200-pound division as he prepares for Murat Gassiev

Tiny meal portions, tinier Speedos, a strange aversion to ice cubes, an even stranger infatuation with David Hasselhoff’s singing voice: Some things are distinctly European. Add boxing’s 200-pound division to that list—just not for long, if Isiah Thomas has his way.

Bio

Bio

Born and raised in Detroit, Isiah Thomas fights with the chip-on-the-shoulder pugnaciousness of the basketball Hall of Famer he’s named after. At 6 foot 4 and with power in both hands, the southpaw is an intimidating presence with the boxing skills to back up his sizable physique.

Isiah Thomas
Isiah Thomas is a disciple of legendary Kronk Gym trainer Emanuel Steward, who saw promise in the fighter as an amateur.

From tragedy to triumph

Thomas began boxing at the age of 12, and had his first amateur fight in 2002.

His parents took him to Detroit’s famed Kronk Gym to help him cope with the loss of his younger brother, Alan, who died in an accident.

Famed Kronk trainer Emanuel Steward was reportedly impressed with Thomas’ physical attributes and saw him as a future contender, and worked with the fighter throughout his amateur career.

As an amateur, Thomas was a two-time Junior Olympic national champion, and he became the first American to take home top honors at the international Cadet World Championships, which he did in 2005.

Thomas lost to future heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder at the 2007 National Golden Gloves.

Isiah Thomas
Isiah Thomas returned from a nearly two-year layoff to resume his winning ways.

Rising up the ranks

Making his professional debut in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, in September 2008, Thomas knocked out Tyrone Dicks in the first round.

Thomas gained three straight first-round stoppages to begin his career.

After beating Richard Hall in November 2012, Thomas was inactive in the ring for nearly two years.

He returned in June 2014, winning an eight-round unanimous decision over Rayco Saunders in Verona, New York.

He then followed that up by winning a six-round unanimous decision over Brad Austin in Biloxi, Mississippi, in February 2015.
