The South Carolina man who trains world-class boxers in White Rock is the subject of a new documentary airing on ETV Thursday, August 8 at 8:00 p.m.  

White Rock Boxing presents boxer, trainer, promoter, and gym owner Billy Stanick.  Stanick has supported boxing in South Carolina for over 50 years and opened White Rock Boxing, located in White Rock, S.C., in 1995.  The friendly, diverse environment at White Rock Boxing might surprise those who view boxing as essentially violent. Stanick wants to share his passion for the sport with those interested, is welcoming to everyone, and allows children to train for free.

Over the years, Stanick has gained the support for his work from notable champions such as Mohammad Ali.  He has managed, trained, and promoted several champion boxers, including:  S.C. Golden Glove Champion and S.C. Southern Golden Glove finalist Mike English; S.C. Golden Glove Champion and S.C. AAU Champion Monk Connors; three-time S.C. Tough Man Heavy Weight Champion Jerry Bell; 1978 S.C. Golden Glove Champion and Southern Golden Finals Stanley Hughey; and Pan American Welterweight Champion in 1975 and Bronze medal winner in the 1976 Olympics Clint Jackson.

White Rock Boxing was produced by Genesis Studios, in Cayce, S.C. The executive producer is Laura P. Valtorta, director is Cliff Springs. The film received an Honorable Mention at the Sunset Film Festival in Los Angeles.  Contact Genesis Studios at les@gencreative.com.
