Syd “The Jewel” Vanderpool is a NABO champion boxer, ranked #1 in the world in 2004 by the IBF. After retiring from competitive boxing in May 2005 with a professional record of 35 wins and 4 losses with 23 ko's, he is now the CEO of Boxing By Syd Athletic Centre in Kitchener, Ontario.

Syd fought world champions Bernard Hopkins, Jeff Lacey, and has a victory over Glen Johnson. It is through boxing that Syd has learned many valuable lessons that he applies to his life outside the ring. According to Syd, success is not about how great of a boxer one can be, but rather measured by the quality of meaningful relationships acquired while working toward a goal. Syd applies this relational attitude to all aspects of his life, including Boxing By Syd Vanderpool where he is creating a culture of champions.
