We're stoked to announce JUNK Athlete Kalvin Henderson won his pro boxing debut fight this weekend! #TeamSauce fans crowded into the old Armory in Little Rock, Arkansas to watch Kalvin crush his opponent in a lightning fast 23 second TKO.
Kalvin was formerly the #4 ranked Middleweight in the United States and an Olympic hopeful member of Team USA. After 60 amateur fights he decided to turn to professional boxing. More than a muscle, his faith is as strong as his punching arm. A graduate of the University of Arkansas, Kalvin has a degree in Music Ed with a focus on-- get this-- percussion, which this boxer credits for his rhythm in the ring. Kalvin says old school blues is the music that fuels his motivation during training sessions.
What's the story with #TeamSauce? It's a high school nickname that Kalvin can't shake. This guy puts hot sauce on everything. Hey, whatever you gotta do to fuel the fire!
2016 is a big year for Kalvin, who's hoping to have at least 4-5 more fights. His goal is to win each boxing match by knockout. We can't wait to watch his story unfold in the making of a professional boxer. Join us in supporting Kalvin and #TeamSauce!
