My name is George Scott. I am one of Sweden´s best boxer ever. Among my merits are a world championship title, one Olympic silver medal and several Swedish champion medals, Nordic champion a. s. o.

For most people at least in Sweden I am known as the boxer George Scott. But as for all other people there is much more behind the person George Scott.

Today I have turned 47 years of age. I have 5 children and 2 grandchildren. I was borne in Liberia on the west coast of Africa. My mother is from Liberia and my father was an Italian guest worker who unfortunately died before I was born. My mother has 16 children. Number 16 was a girl, all other were boys. When I had turned 6 I was adopted to Sweden, the cold country far far away. My biologic mother with whom I still have good contact has many times explained that it was because she wanted to give me a chance to grow up somewhere else than Liberia which suffered from wars and in the slum where she lived. The family to which I was adopted lived in Stockholm the capital of Sweden and consisted of mother, two biological children and subsequently I also got a big sister from Ethiopia. A few years later also my biological half-brother was adopted by the family. My youth was a hard time. I got very little help at home and very little attention and did not perform well in school. At the age of 14 I demanded from the authorities to get a new family and moved north. The following years were messy, lonely and with lots of problems.

My new family moved to the Swedish city Västerås. I have always been active and good in sports. Together with some friends we decided to start boxing. We went up to a club but were immediately refused. But there was something between the trainer and me which led to that he wanted to give me a second chance. 1 year later I was Swedish champion and so it went on. The trainer is the only father figure I have had. He was my trainer, took care of me, taught me to properly read and wright and taught me everything a lost teenager needs to know.

When my carrier developed I moved to Stockholm and my success continued. 1988 it was time to participate in the Seoul Olympics. After some tough matches I stood there with my silver medal. On a trip to Liberia I gave my Olympic medal to my biological mother as a gesture for her not to feel any guilt for the adoption.

A couple of years after the the Olympic success I decided to move to the US and start a carrier as professional boxer something that was not possible in Sweden. This was 1991. By then I had in access of the Olympic medal, won 5 Swedish championships, won 1 Nordic and also had a gold medal as Swedish junior champion. There was not much further for me to compete for in Sweden. To become a professional boxer is a very big step in life. It is not just to move. If you once have changed to professional boxing there is no way back. The schedule as a professional boxer is training and more training. After some matches I stood as winner in a World champion ship  and stood there with my WBU belt and the title world champion.  This was October 7 1995. I won against Rafael Ruelas. I defended the title until 1997.

After these years as professional boxer it was time to return back to Sweden. Back in Sweden I did 2 K1 matches. Lost the first, won the later and then concluded my boxing carrier.

Today I work at a home which takes care of children with problems. A god job which suites me very well. In access to this I have my company George Scott AB together with a collegue of mine I give lectures, inspire, train, work with a clothing brand and autumn 2013 I released my biography the book “undefeated”. A book which still only exists in Swedish. I still train a lot. I help lots of youngsters who can need a helping hand to choose the right carrier path for them. Nothing is impossible!
