Mile High Magazine 03/03/2024 DaVarryl Williamson Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Boxer

Guest:  DaVarryl started boxing at 25 and turned professional 25 days before his 32nd birthday.  He is one of only three boxers who are part of the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame.  Black History Month has a very personal meeting to DaVarryl.  Having been born in Washington DC in the 60’s, he has been fortunate to observe the influence of prominent figures like Muhammad Ali and Barack Obama. Simultaneously, he has been able to introspect on his own path. This has been inspirational for the younger generation, who can see successful individuals who share their racial identity.  At DaVarryl’s gym, he is encouraging kids to flex all their muscles with activities at the gym like playing piano or chess.  Boxing offers so much, one of the things DaVarryl learned was confidence.  It also teaches you resilience, you are bound to face opponents in life that you are going to have to overcome.
