Colin "Sweet C" McMillan - Highlights
Colin McMillan born 12th February 1966, in London's Hackney Hospital. A few years later Colin and his family which included a younger sister Suzzane, moved to Stratford in East London, where Colin attended Rokeby boys comprehensive school.
At thirteen Colin's family decided to move yet again, and the family relocated in Chadwell Heath in Essex. Here Colin went to the Warren Comprehensive school, where he left school with' O' levels in English Language, English Literature, Maths, Physics, History, Geography and Economics.
Two years later after staying on at school he achieved ' A' level passes in English, History and Economics. A keen sportsman Colin excelled at football, cricket, athletics, basketball and table tennis, but it was not until he walked into the Barking Boys Amateur Boxing club at fifteen, did he begin to box.
Many amateur successes followed. Colin would go on to become London ABA Champion four times, and represent England on a number of occassions. In 1988 Colin began his first full time job as clerical officer for what was then called the Department of Health and Social Security. Around two years later, he left the civil service to join British Telecommunications as a technician and it was while here that he became a professional boxer. It was only after receiving sponsorship some eighteen months later, that Colin (boxing name 'Sweet C'), was able to leave BT and become a full time professional.
As a professional 'Sweet C' went on to become a two time British Featherweight champion - winning a Lonsdale belt in record time, Commonwealth featherweight champion in 1991, and World featherweight boxing champion in 1992. In his first defence, disaster struck when a dislocated shoulder injury saw him lose his title, and plague the rest of his fighting years. After regaining and losing the British Featherweight title in 1997, Colin officially announced his retirement.
After becoming a promotions manager for Legends nightclub in Barking, Colin would become advisor to Olympic Super Heavyweight Champion Audley Harrison, and manage a number of boxing prospects. Today, Colin divides his time between running his boxing agency, property developing, commentary, and event organising.
