Yusaf Mack is a former American professional boxer who has had a long and successful career in the world of boxing. Born on January 20, 1980, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he began his professional career at the young age of 20, making his debut against Willie Lee on November 17, 2000, and winning via 2nd round TKO. Over the course of the next 13 years, he went on to have a total of 41 fights, with 31 victories, 8 losses, and 2 draws.
With a nickname like Mack Attack, it's no surprise that Mack has a remarkable track record when it comes to KO wins, with 17 such victories to his name. However, he never won a world title or had any title defenses during his career, despite having fought in the Middleweight, Super Middleweight, and Light Heavyweight weight classes.
Despite this, Mack can look back on his career with pride, having fought some of the best boxers of his time, including Tavoris Cloud, whom he fought in June 2011 for the IBF title fight. While Cloud emerged victorious after an 8th round TKO, Mack put up a valiant effort, and the fight was one of the most exciting of Mack's career.
In addition to Cloud, Mack faced off against some other notable boxers during his career, such as DeAndrey Abron, Daniel Judah, Otis Griffin, Tim Shocks, Omar Sheika, Sabou Ballogou, and Omar Pittman. He emerged victorious in all these fights, showing his strength and tenacity in the ring.
However, Mack's boxing career was not without its setbacks. He suffered a total of eight losses, of which five were via KO. His first loss came against Alejandro Berrio on May 19, 2006, via 6th round TKO, which put an end to his 22-fight win streak. Despite these losses, Mack remained a formidable opponent for any boxer who faced him in the ring, and his unyielding spirit and determination made him an inspiration to many.
When looking back on Mack's boxing career, one cannot help but notice his remarkable height and reach. Standing at 6 feet 1 inch (185 cm), with a reach of 75 inches (191 cm), he was a formidable opponent in the ring, able to land punches more easily than many of his opponents. However, it was his boxing technique, honed over years of training, that truly made him a great fighter.
Mack was a highly skilled boxer, with an orthodox stance that he used to great advantage. He was able to read his opponents well and take advantage of any weaknesses he spotted. This gave him an edge in the ring and allowed him to dominate many of his fights.
Despite his success in the ring, Mack never forgot his roots. He gave back to his community by mentoring young boxers and providing them with the support and guidance they needed to succeed. His dedication to the sport of boxing and to the young boxers who looked up to him serves as an inspiration to all who know him.
Though Mack retired from professional boxing in 2014 with a record of 31-8-2, he remains a popular figure in the world of boxing. His legacy as a fighter and a mentor lives on, and his influence can be felt in the young boxers who continue to train and develop their skills today.
