Owens is from Minneapolis fighting out of the Circle of Discipline boxing gym with both world champions WBA 147lbs Jamal James and WBA 168lbs David Morall. Owens has been a professional boxer for six years and has a impressive record of 12 wins and two losses with 11 knockouts.

Owens was also a hard hitting stand-out amateur boxer, with 120 matches and well over 60 ko victories. He won 10 state and regional titles and multiple national titles. The 30-year-old is 5’10” and has a reach of 75 inches.

Owens credits hard work and a vegan lifestyle. He knows it takes discipline, focus, hard work and a healthy lifestyle to compete in professional sports.

“ The moment the pandemic hit in 2020 all I could focus on was training hard everyday at home, I made my home my gym because our boxing gym was closed. That hard work eventually dropped me from super welterweight (154) to super lightweight (140). “
