Why I box

"To me, there are three things we all should do every day. If we do this every day of our life, you’re going to … What a wonderful … Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think, you should spend some time in thought. And number three is you should have your emotions moved to tears. Could be happiness or joy, but think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special."

Matt's journey began in Akron, Ohio, where he discovered the crucible of his character. A man of unwavering purpose, Matt found his calling in serving others through his service in the United States Army, where he bravely deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2007. Following his time in the military, he pursued higher education at the University of Southern California, leveraging his degree alongside his combat and professional experiences to sow seeds of impact.
For the past eight years, Matt has been a proud small business owner in Denver, where he has left an indelible mark as a partner in Monfort Companies, Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row Denver, and Riot House Denver. His dedication to improving the city and assisting those in need has been unwavering.
He is currently leading the charge in the fight against cancer affecting Denver’s youth, partnering with the Denver Children’s Foundation, an organization close to his heart. Matt's commitment to making a difference in his community is steadfast, and his efforts to #ko-cancer are a testament to his compassion and resolve.
