n 2009, Hill transitioned out of Corporate America as a successful executive search consultant to embark on his journey to creating the Sweet Science Boxing Club brand. He opened the first brick-and-mortar club in that same year offering a unique training method to teach Atlanta’s business elite, corporate professionals, men, women and children.
“The Sweet Science Fitness Boxing Club brand was established to teach and instruct the REAL sport of boxing to individuals seeking to learn the Sweet Science of Boxing without any fear and intimidation of getting hurt,” Hill wrote in a statement, per his club’s website. “Teaching the sport of boxing to corporate professionals, competitive athletes, men, women and children has since become my greatest passion and pleasure.”
On Facebook, Doraville Mayor Joseph Geierman posted a few photos of the special occasion including the proclamation document. The celebratory caption highlighted Hill’s humble beginnings growing up in DeKalb County, graduating from Dunwoody High School, and attending Georgia College.
