Bio:Born and raised in Danbury, Connecticut, Omar Bordoy Jr. is one of four siblings. Omar grew up in the Mill Ridge section of Danbury and graduated from Danbury High School in 2013. Omar is married with two children, and when he is not in the gym, Omar works as a production technician 3 Team Lead at Swift Textiles.
At the age of 13, in an effort to stay out of trouble, Omar began boxing. After sharpening his skills in the gym, Omar’s amateur career took off. Omar won 35 of his 44 amateur fights, taking home hardware along the way. In 2013, Omar won the Connecticut State Championship, as well as the 141 lb Novice Connecticut Golden Gloves. Fast forward to 2016, and Omar would win the Sugar Bert Championship.
Omar turned pro in 2017 at Star Boxing’s “Slugfest at the Sun” on the undercard of fellow Danbury native, Star Boxing stablemate and Connecticut Boxing Hall of Fame Inductee, Delvin Rodriguez on NESN. Omar would rip off seven consecutive wins highlighted by an electric decision victory at Star Boxing’s “Rockin’ Fights” 33 at The Paramount.
"Joe DeGuardia gave me my pro debut back in 2017," said Bordoy, "I never forgot him giving me the chance to begin my career and now giving me the opportunity to further my career. I couldn't be more excited to sign a contract with Star Boxing. I've always been an underdog and I come from nothing, so I'm looking forward to showing the world that from nothing you can become something. The confidence Star Boxing is showing me only makes me hungrier and I look forward for what is to come."
Bordoy trains out of Champs Boxing Club in Danbury Connecticut, and is managed by AJ Galante and trained by Bennie Little and Dave McDonough.
