Derek Pomerleau developed his passion for boxing at the very young age of three when he watched the movie Rocky for the first time with his father. He officially began training a few year later, when he turned six, in a small gym in Sainte-Martine, a neighbouring town to his current hometown of Mercier.
Being a young boy with an energy surplus and a need to unwind, Derek was truly inspired by the movie Rocky and found that he connected with boxing on many levels. It is a sport that allowed him to be autonomous and organized. Boxing brought him a lot in his personal life and enables him to stay on the right path.
Beyond his career as an athlete, Derek completed high school at École Louis-Philipe Paré. In the future, he sees himself becoming a professional boxer and having a promising career.
