Scott started boxing at the age of 11 and had a stellar amateur career. In 1997, he won the Junior Olympics Championships and in 1998, Scott won the American Boxing Classic title and the "Under-19" Junior World Championships crown.
He won the National AAU Heavyweight Championship in 1999 defeating world champ Michael Bennett and Jason Estrada in the process. In 2000 he beat DaVarryl Williamson and Malcolm Tann but lost to Estrada at the trials and then Bennett in the Olympic box-offs and therefore did not qualify. His record was 70-3.
Scott turned professional in 2000 and is undefeated, albeit against limited opposition thus far. Although he also has wins over former amateur star Terry McGroom and journeymen David Bostice and Louis Monaco, he took a big step up in early 2007 and defeated former contender Charles Shufford.
He did not fight between December 2008 and the beginning of 2012, due to an bicep injury. He has since recovered from the injury and made a comebak in early 2012. He is currently being trained by boxing Hall of Fame trainer Jesse Reid & promoted by Goossen-Tutor with Dan Goossen as his promoter.
