To become an elite boxer, you need not only fighting skills, but also a personality and style that will set you apart from the crowd. Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker had all that, and it helped him through an amazing amateur and professional career. A native of Norfolk, Virginia, Whitaker first appeared on the national scene when he captured a gold medal in the lightweight division at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. Of his 214 amateur fights, he won 201 of them. Whitaker enjoyed similar success as a pro and won a total of 40 fights and several titles. Known as the best “pound for pound” fighter for many years, Whitaker took on all challengers, including Oscar De La Hoya, Felix Trinidad and Julio Cesar Chavez. Like many retired boxers, Whitaker has taken on a new career as a trainer and has some promising young fighters under his tutelage like Dorin Spivey and Joel Julio.
