Standing 6’2” with power in both hands, Toledo, Ohio’s undefeated Sonny Fredrickson compiled an outstanding amateur record of 120-8 (60 KO). Fredrickson collected numerous accolades in his amateur career, including the 2013 National PAL Bronze Medalist (141 lbs.), the 2013 National Golden Gloves Final Eight (141 lbs.), five Toledo Golden Glove Championships and two Ohio State Junior Olympics Championships. As a young boxer, Fredrickson modeled his style after his childhood idol, Oscar De La Hoya, developing a powerful left hook and a fan-friendly style.

 

Fredrickson began his professional career in February 2014 with first-round technical knockout victory over Roosevelt Archie at the Serbian American Cultural Center in Weirton, West Virginia. He followed that up with another first-round technical knockout win in the same venue less than two months later, this time defeating Rick Ogden. Three more knockout victories would follow, and in his most recent bout on December 5, 2014 he scored a six-round unanimous decision win over Darryl Hayes in front of his hometown fans at the Grand Plaza Hotel in Toledo, Ohio.

 

A four-sport high school athlete who played baseball, football, ran track and wrestled, Fredrickson is a huge Ohio State Buckeyes fan and wants to eventually attend Ohio State to further pursue his education. He is also a “sneaker head” whose main passion is collecting the latest Air Jordans. In his time off from the ring, Fredrickson likes to play basketball and shop for clothes, hence the moniker “Pretty Boi.”

 

In February 2015, Roc Nation Sports announced that it had signed Fredrickson to an exclusive promotional agreement.

 

2015 would prove to be another banner year for the flawless Frederickson, who advanced his pristine record to 11-0 (8 KO). Frederickson drew unanimous decisions over both Eric Palmer at the Woodward High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Ramon Ellis at Foxwoods Resort, Mashantucket, Connecticut, USA. The victories were followed by a two-round technical knockout of Juan Santiago at Oracle Arena in Oakland on the Ward-Smith undercard, a commanding one-round knockout of Marteze Logan at the Warren Valley Golf and Banquet Center in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, and a three-round technical knockout of Jesus Angulo at the Radisson Grand Ballroom in Rochester, New York.

 

Frederickson began his 2016 campaign with a second-round stoppage of Lowell Brownfield at the historic Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky, a venue renowned for showcasing a young Cassius Clay in the late 1950’s. In his most recent fight, he rose to 13-0 with 9 knockouts with an eight-round unanimous decision win over Elvin Perez in the main event at a sold out Lucas Country Recreation Center in the Toledo suburb of Maumee, Ohio.  Fredrickson won by the score of 79-71 on all three judges’ scorecards in a grueling match that was fought mostly in close quarters.
