Scypion was the National Golden Gloves Middleweight Champion in 1978.In February 1983, Scypion beat Frank Fletcher by a twelve round decision to take the USBA's regional Middleweight title. This victory guaranteed him a world championship try, against Marvelous Marvin Hagler. The two competitors met on May 27, in a fight televised by HBO Boxing, which was considered by many to show only the best fights available at the time. Scypion was knocked out in the fourth round in his only world title try, which was held in Providence, Rhode Island. It was the first bout to simultaneously decide the WBA, WBC and IBF titles in history.
