Cam Awesome

Cam is originally from Long Island, NY. At 18 Cam moved to Florida and at the age of 20 Cam moved to Kansas City. Cam didn’t start boxing until he was a senior in high school. He was an overweight young man with little confidence. In his journey to success he has understood his bad habits and become conscious of them. Cam has developed simple but effective techniques to becoming a champion in and outside of the ring.

Although Cam is most known for his failures, he has twisted the perspective of failures and used them as stepping stones to success. His career as a boxer has given him enough material to be a successful standup comic and has given him life experience to be a keynote speaker. His resilience has taught him the importance of hard work and gives him the credibility to share his story.

Cam has been featured in several print and internet publications and digital media outlets, including: ESPN, Sports Nation, ESPN’s Highly Questionable, Washington Post, Yahoo! Sports,Team USA, Bleacher Report, Rolling Stone, SB Nation, Kansas City Star,, ESPN Radio, Fox4KC,, Boxing News Online, The Sweet Science,, Viva La Vegan, National Post, among many others.
