Otis Grant, BA (Leisure Studies) 93 has been a fixture of the boxing scene, both in Montreal and abroad, for many years. He is a two-time North American Boxing Federation (NABF) middleweight champion and former WBO Middleweight Boxing Champion of the World. Following a near-fatal car collision in 1999, Otis made a remarkable recovery and reclaimed his boxing career.
Grant later began working as a counsellor at Lindsay Place High School in Pointe Claire, helping children with special needs integrate into school life. He is now the coordinator of the community learning centre at Riverdale High School and co-owns Grant Brothers Boxing in the west island with his brother Howard.
He established the Otis Grant and Friends Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports the Old Brewery Mission and other community-based organizations to help the homeless, families in need and sick children.
