PRLog - Sep. 29, 2011 - – Syd Vanderpool’s no stranger to competition and although he’s retired from competitive professional boxing, he continues to fight for what he believes in. And this time he fights for a shot at $20,000 for his chance to promote a boxing event on a national level. Upon learning about Brett Wilson’s, new show Risky Business where he had a chance to pitch his idea to Brett, former Dragon’s Den star and an investor, Vanderpool didn’t miss a shot to contact the producer and pitch his idea. The catch? He is competing with another entrepreneur’s idea but there is only room for one winner who will have to make a profit on their idea in 30 days. The winner will get the $20,000 plus the opportunity to showcase their idea on national television.

With a successful boxing club, Boxing By Syd, Vanderpool spends his time training and promoting amateur and professional boxers through regularly hosting successful amateur and pro boxing events. Despite the success, Vanderpool still knows there is a long way to go to improve the awareness of the Canadian boxing scene. “Unfortunately it’s not a sport similar to other sports like hockey or basketball because there is no season and therefore no one season to combine our marketing efforts”, Syd confirms. The situation does not detract from Syd’s efforts or spirits as his unstoppable commitment to promote the future stars of boxing is unwavering. His passion lies in training and developing youth both in and out of the ring. “The skills learned in the ring include focus and dedication, both of which can be applied to their personal life”.

The last event on August 26th, Big City, Bright Lights Boxing, a Las Vegas themed event brought in several celebrities including Canadian current undefeated Heavyweight Pro Boxing Champion, Nevin Pakjic, MPP, John Milloy, former Olympian, Artur Binkowski, and former Canadian Heavyweight Champion, Ray Olubowale.  Many amateur boxers who have trained with Vanderpool have experienced success within the amateur ranks with three turning pro, including Natasha “The Nightmare” Spence who has recently returned from a victorious outcome in Montreal. Julius “Caesar” Bunda who fought to a disputed draw in his last match which was for the Canadian Middleweight crown is another one of Vandepool’s protégés.

Like a true champ, Vanderpool believes that his training has prepared him to win the competition, “I’m bringing my championship experience to this show and I’m confident that we can impress Brett and the investor with our solid pitch and win the competition”.  The episode airs on Monday, November 21st at 9pm on Slice TV Network.
