Andrew Maynard was a top amateur boxer in the United States, winning the US title as a light-heavyweight in 1987 and 1988, and taking a bronze medal at the 1987 Pan American Games. He then went on to win gold in light-heavy at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
After the Olympics Maynard turned professional in 1989 and fought through 2000, and was managed by [Sugar Ray Leonard]. He won his first 12 bouts before losing by TKO in the 7th to Bobby Czyz. Maynard won the NABF light-heavyweight title and held it from 1990-92, but it was considered a minor title. He fought for the WBC cruiserweight title in October 1992 against Anaclet Wamba, but lost on decision. Maynardâs last years as a pro were not successful, and he ended with a career professional record of 26 wins (21 by KO), 13 losses, and 1 draw. He retired after losing by TKO to Gary Wilcox in October 2000. Maynard later taught youth boxing at his own gym in Harlingen, Texas.
