Split-T Management has added another promising pugilist to its roster, signing undefeated featherweight contender Tiara Brown. Hailing from Lehigh Acres, Florida, Brown boasts an immaculate record of 15-0, highlighted by 10 knockout victories. She’s set to be managed by Brian Cohen, who’s got a strong track record of managing successful female boxers.
In a statement, Brown expressed her excitement about joining forces with Split-T Management. “I think Brian Cohen has done a great job with the many women boxers that he manages. I like the feeling I get from that. I like the team, and I am glad to be a part of it,” she said. Brown is optimistic that the partnership will give her the push she needs to ascend the ranks, eyeing a world title by the end of this year or early next.
Brown’s journey to boxing stardom began at the age of 12, influenced by her older cousins who were amateur boxers. Originally a multi-sport athlete who played basketball and ran track, she initially took up boxing as a form of conditioning. But she soon fell in love with the sweet science, eventually competing in national competitions and making boxing her primary passion.
The Florida native went on to attend Columbus State in Columbus, Georgia on a Cross-Country scholarship, but her dedication to boxing never wavered. She gained prominence by winning a world gold medal in 2012, which catapulted her to the number-one spot in the world in her weight class. On a team that featured legends like Claressa Shields and Mikaela Mayer, Brown stood out and garnered attention.
Turning pro in September 2016, Brown continued to impress, making a statement with a first-round stoppage over Khadija Sanders in Washington, D.C. Her winning streak includes triumphs over tough opponents like Vanessa Bradford, Jennifer Martinez, and a 42-fight veteran, Lilliana Martinez.
Currently trained by Monyette Flowers, Brown aims to build on her successes under the Split-T banner, setting her sights on championship gold. With an already impressive resume, Brown seems well-positioned for a run at the featherweight title, and her new management deal could be the key to unlocking her full potential in the squared circle.
