THE JOURNEY FROM HARVARD, THAT LEAD TO THE RING WITH CUT MAN “ICE” PAC SANCHEZ

Puerto Rico native, ICE Pac Sanchez started his boxing career at the age of 10 when he began training under his father Don Pedro Sanchez, who was a well-known boxing trainer at that time.  Shortly after starting his training, his family moved to New York where Sanchez developed his amateur career.  Eventually, he hung up his gloves to take his shot at the big leagues as a major league baseball player. “I loved boxing but I was also really good at Baseball and at that time, I felt that baseball was best for my career and my future.”

Sanchez earned a spot on the Yankees minor league team but after only one season suffered a career-ending injury that lead him to pursue his marketing and advertising degree at Harvard. “I went from being released from the team of my dreams to studying at Harvard. Little did I know, I would eventually end up back in the boxing ring.”

Pac started his own marketing consulting firm and after a few years, he felt boxing pulling at his heartstrings once again. “I packed up and moved to Cali and started training amateur fighters with my dad, he taught me how to be a cut man.” It was not until 2010 that an organized cut man certification came into existence. Before 2010, the only way was through apprenticeship and a great reputation. “Wrapping hands is an art, it’s a practice and the only way to get good at it is by doing it over and over.”

“My dad was my mentor who taught me everything regarding being an exceptional Cutman.” When asked how he came up with the name “ICE,” Sanchez explained that he was asking his daughter for advice on nick-names and as he reached to grab something out of the freezer, she said, “Why don’t you just call yourself ICE.” He explains to us how valuable it was to have the support of his family during his journey and how the most rewarding part of his job is being able to share his knowledge.

“Most of the trainers I meet are afraid to share their knowledge but being mentors and teaching people what we know is part of our responsibility.” ICE learned from his father and eventually found a mentee of his own in “Jacob “Stitch” Duran” who went on to have a successful career as a cut man in boxing and UFC.  “Stitch” became so good at his job that he was chosen to appear in some of the Rocky films and he went on to publish a book about his life journey titled “From the Field to Madison Square Garden.  ICE and STITCH created a bond of friendship that still exists today. In fact, the dynamic duo went on to create their own line of pro boxing tape for fighters. According to ICE, the brand called “Stitch,” is the only tape that he will use in his corner. 

“This doesn’t happen overnight. You have to be good, and you have to be patient. If you are good, people will eventually notice and start to request you.”  Being a professional Cut man has allowed ICE to see the world and to develop relationships and memories that will last a lifetime.  He currently lives bi-coastal between Los Angeles and New York and after almost 20 years, he is still working as a professional Cut Man and says he does not plan on stopping anytime soon.
