Nicknamed "The Bullet", Kent started boxing 18 years ago. His hero growing up was Muhammad Ali, and that is what started his interest in the sport. Since he started boxing with a knockout win in his first bout, Kent has had over 120 matches, winning over 85 percent of them...

Kent was the national lightweight champion in the 1999-2000 season and had qualified for the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000, but was unable to attend. In 2002, he won a gold medal at the North American Indigenous Games in Winnipeg. Kent is currently involved in martial arts, along with his daughter. They hope to achieve their black belt distinction at the same time, and compete at the national level. Kent completed his schooling at the University of Manitoba and currently works for the Child and Family All Nations Coordinated Response Network, as the Director of Human Resources. Kent is also an Aboriginal Role Model and is a founding member of Motivate Canada's GEN7 Aboriginal Youth Program.
