With no home and no place to go, Al decided to hit the gym to learn how to survive. Years later, he turned pro at 22, with 15 undefeated professional fights.

He started out training some of Detroit’s finest pro athletes, such as: Detroit Red Wing’s Darren McCarty; Detroit Pistons Lindsay Hunter; Detroit Lions James Hall, Damien Woody, Dre Bly, and Duane Smith; UFC Fighter Don Fry; Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock; and the “Mountain,” Giant Silvia on location in Japan for Pride Fighting Competitions.
