We recently swung by Split-T Boxing in Las Vegas, NV, to catch up with former multi-sport champion and current day trainer Dewey “Black Kobra” Cooper.

During his fighting days, Cooper competed in Kickboxing, Boxing, Muay Thai, and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), and you can always count on Cooper training a bevy of talented athletes across different genres of sports.

Having been around the Las Vegas Fight Scene for some years now, I have seen my fair share of trainers around town. With so many gyms in the city, there are plenty of trainers and each of them has a unique approach to the sport.

In former kickboxing champion and former boxing contender Dewey Cooper, I have come to admire him as one of the most committed and hard-working people in the fight game when it comes to pushing his fighters. Cooper captured the WKC heavyweight and WKF cruiserweight titles as a kickboxer while also compiling a 19-3-3 record with 11 knockouts as a professional boxer.
