A 4-time Golden Gloves NY Champion and 2-time World Champion amateur boxer,who was ranked #2 nationally by USA Boxing. Keisher “Fire” Mcleod-Wells is not only an accomplished athlete whose competitive spirit extend far beyond boxing, she is also what some consider now to be a triple threat. She ended her amateur career winning 12 championships.
She was born and raised in Bklyn,NY. Her height and agility also lent itself to her other dream of being an actress and a model. She enrolled as an actress in The National Black Theater and was a student at TV1 and HB Studios.
McLeod-Wells was introduced to boxing after she auditioned for a role in The Terminator and was told she was too “waify” for the part. Encouraged by her agent to build muscle definition she turned to boxing. Although she never got the part, her acting career would soon be overshadowed by her boxing success. However, before that would happen she would go on to book 5 national TV commercials and a small role in the film “Love the hard way” starring Adrian Brody. She was also cast as herself in a documentary film “Prelude to a Fight” and in the History Channel’s “Warrior Women”.
McLeod-Wells was given the opportunity to travel to Mexico to film “Todas Contra Mexico” a boxing TV reality show.
She has been featured in a full-page article for The NY Times and numerous magazines.
"It's not how many times I fall down in life that define me, it's how many times I get up that do” Mcleod-Wells often likes to quote.
