Shannon, who had a white mother and black father, started fighting in the streets as a young boy in Seattle's predominately black Central District where he found kids who would start fights with him because he was white. He later moved to Lynnwood, WA, where he continued to get into fights, this time with white kids who fought him because he was black.After beating up one kid, he was invited to a gym where he began boxing at the age of 12. He would capture a national junior championship at 15 and a world junior championship at the age of 16. Shannon qualified for the 1980 Olympic games as a 17-year-old at 106 pounds, but did not compete due
