He attended Ferndale Elementary, Old Mill Middle North, and graduated from Old Mill Senior High School.

Amateur career[edit]

As an amateur boxer he accomplished 3x National Silver Gloves Championships, 2x Junior National Golden Gloves Championships, Junior Olympic Gold Medal, Ringside World Championship, Ohio State Fair Championship, Under-19 National Championship, and a National Pal Championship, where he defeated 2012-2016 Olympian Cam Awesome (Formally Lenroy Thompson) in the finals. He is the youngest boxer in American history to ever win a Men's National Title in the Heavyweight Division which he accomplished at the age of 17 years.[citation needed]

In 2009 he captured a Silver Medal at the US Men's National Championships, giving him a position on the USA Men's International team. In 2008, even though he was not a medalist. He was a quarterfinalist (5th place) at both, the National Golden Gloves, and the Aiba Youth World Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico. At the AIBA Youth Worlds, he was defeated by 2012 and 2016 Olympic Bronze Medalist Ivan Dychko of Kazakhstan 5-1.

Professional career[edit]

Shortly after winning the Silver Medal at the US Men's National Championships, Kisner decided to turn professional. Kisner now holds a professional record of 20–4–1 with 6 KO's.[1] Kisner made his debut January 31, 2010 against World Ranked kickboxer, Francois Ambang who is currently #16 in the world by Glory. Early in Kisner's career he was a huge hopeful in many opinions as one of boxing's best young talents. Heavyweight World title challenger and 2004 USA Olympian Calvin Brock, said Kisner was the future of the Cruiserweight division. He was also praised by the likes of, USA Olympic coach Joe Zanders, and John Brown the owner Ringside company and manager of Heavyweight Contender Tommy Morrison.

He then went, 12–0–1 in his first 13 before losing a split decision, that many thought he won against fellow undefeated Junior Wright. The fight was in Wright’s hometown, and was awarded to Kisner by a split decision before being reversed to Wright by a split decision. Wright went on to fight Beibut Shumenov for the WBA World Championship. Kisner then after to win a dominate decision over former contender Marlon Hayes. And then after Hayes went on to lose a competitive, 10-round decision on CBS sports network to former World title challenger, and boxing super star Lateef Kayode. Kisner started off, winning the fight early in the first half. But Kayode out worked him, in the last half to win a decision. Though Kayode has won the fight, it seemed closer then the scorecards declared it. Kayode after the fight, said that Kisner was one of the best he had fought, and had the potential to became one of the best in the sport. Kisner a few fights later, went on to clearly beat ranked contender Brian Holstein in Columbus, Ohio to capture the NABA-USA (WBA USA National Championship) title.

A year later Kisner traveled to Belgium to fight #2 world ranked contender Ryad Merhy. The fight was for, the WBA intercontinental Chmapionship that was also an eliminator for the World Championship. The fight was a chess match, that seemed to be even all the way till the end of the 4th round. With about 30 seconds left in the round, Merhy landed a left hook to the body, and then a left hook to head, that for the first time in his career (Professioanl or Amateur) Kisner went down. But as a result of the body shot, Kisner struggled to get up, with beating the count at nine. It was then the referee decided Kisner was unfit to continue, and the fight was stopped. A few months later, Kisner once again won another clear decision over Brian Holstein in Columbus, Ohio for NABA-USA Championship. Now after his 2nd win, over Holstein, Kisner is now USA Champion and top 20 in the World by the WBA at Crusierweight.

Kisner now has plans to drop down and start competing in the Light Heavyweight division.
