About Ian

After a challenging boyhood, Ian has found a clear direction to be the best boxer he can!

ian-fatherWith his father in prison for all of his childhood, Ian grew up with his mother and sister in the rough, low-rent and in-your-face city of Paterson, New Jersey. By the time he finished high school most of his friends had run afoul of the law at least once and many were in jail. A lot of the folks around Ian expected him to meet the same fate — “like father, like son,” is what most thought. Ian had other plans. On frequent visits to see his father, a young Ian was taught from the start that prison was no place for any sort of life.

He credits his father with giving him a clear sense of right and wrong and for pushing him to find a purpose and work towards it. The elder Green made clear in no uncertain terms that every decision on his path to a prison cell had been his choice, his responsibility and his mistake. He made sure his son knew how to choose better. Ian’s uncle also helped steer him in the right direction.

As a trainer at a Paterson boxing gym, he started bringing Ian along after school just to keep him out of trouble. Trouble seemed to find Ian. He was always in the way, running wild, curious and impulsive.His presence in the gym started to become a nuisance and when he was ten his uncle was given a choice – start Ian on boxing lessons or to leave him at home.

oldgym The choice was obvious. For the next four years, Ian’s life meant school with a rough-and-tumble bunch of friends, home with his sister and mother and hours each day at the gym with his uncle and a crowd of older boxers and trainers to watch, to learn from and to be inspired by. When Ian was fourteen he moved in with his just-released father and his mother and sister moved to Georgia. This transition was a crucial time in Ian’s development.

Though it could have been destructive for the father and son, both remained committed to keeping Ian on the right path and making the right choices. Instead of imploding, Ian flourished, continuing his boxing training while also running track and playing basketball and football at Paterson Catholic High School. A year passed, and Ian went into the 2012 Golden Gloves tournament with an amateur record of 14-6. He scored the first stoppage in his career with a second round victory during the semifinals, putting him once again in the final round and once again squaring off against John Magda.

This was his third time facing this opponent after two losses, including the one at the previous year’s Golden Gloves. Despite his stronger mental state and his increasing endurance, Ian lost his form over the course of the fight and eventually lost the match. READ MORE
