DES PLAINES, IL, October 21, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Wayne Gregory has been inducted into Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Mr. Gregory is renowned as a boxing coach and former professional fighter who has been serving as a coach and the chief executive officer of his own business, Gregory Boxing Inc., in Des Plaines, Illinois, since 2017. He began boxing at the age of 9 to defend himself from other children, and soon developed a fiery passion for the sport. During his career in athletics, Mr. Gregory became a professional boxer, eventually rising through the ranks and fighting across the globe, including in Thailand.
Mr. Gregory began his professional career at the age of 19 in the U.S. military during a period of noncombat; as such, this period gave him the opportunity to hone his skills. Over time, he commenced training and coaching other fighters. Upon winning his first match as a coach, Mr. Gregory realized that training was to be the foundation for his future.
During his tenure in sports, Mr. Gregory has found success as the general manager of Fairtex Muay Thai Camp and a professional fighter at TSC Boxing & Muay Thai. During his time as a fighter, he was the first American to win at Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, in 1997. Dipping his toes in other professional endeavors, he also served as a program development specialist at Grunt Training Solutions and a protection specialist at P4 Global LLC. Since 2016, Mr. Gregory has also maintained his involvement in academia as an instructor at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois.
Mr. Gregory's greatest successes with his clients are the athletes who are unaware of their own potential. After training with him, they exceed their own expectations, see the best in themselves and realize their true potential. Training first responders, soldiers, executives and other prominent professionals, Mr. Gregory notes, "What we give is desire, determination and discipline… What we get is honor, courage, loyalty and respect."
Mr. Gregory attributes his immense success to the support and success of his wife, Christie. She is a Golden Gloves champion, whom he trained, as well as a financial advisor. Looking toward the future, Mr. Gregory intends to franchise Gregory Boxing Inc. across the United States.
