Connecticut based trainer, and former IBF world light heavyweight title challenger, "Iceman" John Scully is as busy as ever these days. Coming off of his November 21 induction into the Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame, the Iceman is not only in the gym training the likes of junior lightweight pro Joseph "Chip" Perez (1-0) and amateur light heavyweight Jarin Clay-Bey, son of former heavyweight contender and 1996 U.S. Olympian Lawrence Clay-Bey, but he has also seen his involvement with featherweight prospect Matt Sharpshooter Remillard (19-0) officially upgraded from cornerman and sometime advice giver to co-trainer.

Both Perez and Remillard are slated for undercard action at Cotton Eyed Joe's in Knoxville, Tennessee on December 19th

    Iceman noted as a boxer, trainer, mentor and friend



    This Saturday night [Nov. 21] , former boxer and current trainer “Iceman” John Scully will be inducted into the Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame. Past living inductees (at the time of the inductions) have included boxing greats such as Willie Pep and Marlon Starling. Although he challenged for a world title, Scully did not reach the heights that Pep and Starling reached, but taking his entire contribution to the sport into account (his work as a pro trainer and serving as a mentor to many young amateurs), Scully richly deserves a plaque on the Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame wall at Mohegan Sun right next to the “Will o’ the Wisp” and “Moochie.”

    Scully is also my good friend.

    At the start of his pro career, Scully ran up a nice record of nearly 20 fights, and only one loss, before suffering his second defeat at the hands of then-NABF middleweight champion Kevin Watts in a non-title bout in 1990. One judge had the fight as close as 96-95 even though the fight took place in Atlantic City, NJ and Watts was from Jersey.
