Alfred “Doc” Nowicki a successful businessman born and raised in Philadelphia has always had a love for the sport of boxing.

Doc carefully managed their careers allowing both fighters to fight for world championships in June of 2012. While both fighters fell short of reaching their goals, they are currently in position to earn larger paydays and to compete once again at the highest level of boxing.
