Colt was born into a poverty home in Houston, Texas. At the age of four, his father was killed in a drive by, which no arrest where made. No suspects where named as the case was closed due to insufficient evidence. His mother, was left to take care the first of two children. Her second child didn't survive birth because of punctured lungs. The two then moved from apartment to apartment as his mother kept getting fired from job to job. After searching and searching, she managed to work the night shift leaving Colt with neighbors or anybody that could watch him. During his stays with friends and family, he became fastinated with physical sports such as football, basketall, wrestling and even boxing. He would be seen outside everyday throwing fist in the air or taunting his friends. In school, Colt was small as the big kids seemed to pick on him. One day, a bully walked across the play ground, with his homeboys, and jumped the unsuspecting boy from behind. After his mother cured his wounds, she told him that he can learn to fight but to only defend himself. He took this advise and ran with it as the bully tried again, but this time little Colten beat him at his own game. This memory would soon remain in Colten's head for the rest of his life.
At the age of thirteen, Colt joined a local street gang that wasn't really known on the rough streets of Houston. They would beat up kids, take money from stores and start fights in the streets. From around the blocks, teens and adults heard of the name Colt as he was the proclaimed "The Warrior of the streets" or "King of the Streets" because of his milestone in fights won over other teenagers as well as young adults. He would then become the most known infamous figure in the streets. But he took his attitude to the field as he joined the Jesse H. Jones High School football Team. Coaches saw the need for attention in his young mind as he would spend nights at the coaches home and meet there wives and interact with their kids. He would not start no trouble since he like the game of football so much. In his sophomore year, Colt was a six foot, two hundred pound, second string linebacker. He didn't get much playing time due to the fact that the seniors above him had more experience. But in his junior year, he was named the starter and made the first string All-State team. His success would have some ups and downs. He would show up late to practices and be a no show for team meetings. Suddenly the coaches put an ultamatium to him to quit his street mentality or face getting kicked off the team. With a little doubt, Colt would improve his work ethics and continue to be with the team. In his senior year, Colt was on the radar of colleges like Miami, University of Texas and Oklahoma University. All that came crashing when Colt was arrested for manslaughter with his friends. Soon the offers were decreased and his friends were getting killed. In an effort to make Colt not go down the wrong path, one of the coaches then enrolled him for boxing lessons. Colt would then excel at basics and have no trouble learning advance techniques. Soon he joined the ameaturs. Then later, the WBC came calling. After his boxing career was over he then turned back to something that didn't leave him, the streets. Once again reunited with his friends, they wreck havroc on neighboring gangs. They would carry guns and rob gangsters, people walking the streets and even got involved selling crack on the streets for a little bit. The final string came when Colt and his gang got into it with a rival gang as they exchanged fire. The police pulled up on cue and fired at both bands, wounding Colt in his shoulder. He would then be cuffed and sent to the prescient. After the trial, Colt was then sentenced to up to five years in Longview Correction Facility. He would only serve 24 months behind bars until his release to wrestle for FcW.
While on his off days, Colt goes to neighborhoods and tries to bring truce back to the streets. Speak to young kids bout gang violence and the way of life that he's grown up too. He's even trying to open up a community center for youths to play sports and get involved with there school work. Even though he is speaking on the positive side of life, his former gang members are stepping in and reforming there neighborhoods.
A fan of combat and history about war, Colt dresses himself like the military with the different color camoflague pants with black or white taped wrist. To put a little touch to his attire, he wears the famous fresh white NIKE Air Force Ones. His comes out to the ring with a matching NEW ERA cap with the Houston Astro's logo in red.
Out of Ring Attire
Colt is known to dress in some of the latest fashion clothes such as ECKO, Sean John, or Academiks. When he comes to events by FcW he is usually spot to wear a black Houston Astros with the red star. A long white tee, with some baggy blue jeans some mustard yellow timbalands. with a rag of red, blue or black hanging from his back pocket.
In an effort to promote a renew image of himself, Colt is no stranger to wearing the finest suits. Lines such as Stacy Adams, Falcone or Steve Harvey would be freely advertised. Though not a kind of person that will don a suit when he first buys it, he is a ferious competitor when it comes to wearing the latest fashion. Last seen in a suit was when he was released from the Corrections facility then flown to FcW Monday night murder scene.
Colt made an short stint as a Supermiddle weight, later Cruiserweight, in the World Boxing Council(WBC) only compiling a record of 3-1-0(2 KO's). Most of his background is made from the amateur leagues. Even one time competed to represent the United States in the Olympics. All his hopes and dreams came to a fall when the law came knocking. His amateur record was compiled of 38-2-0(26 KO's), to lose to future hall of famers. The nickname of "The 45" was officially billed as his nickname in the WBC since his first two fights only last 45 seconds.
"Never has a fighter been in this sport like . . . him", said one boxing historian. Referring to Colt's relentless, technical fights in his late amateur, early professional. Even at the tender age of 19, Colt was the big dog in the ring. He was always predicted the winner of most of his bouts, but all came down in his last fight in the WBC. The fighter, to be unknown, defeated Colt in round 7 of 10 rounds. The fight was supposed to crown the number one contendership for the Supermiddle Weight. In the last minute and twenty-nine seconds, Colt was unleashing his combination until the fighter caught him with a jab then a right hook. This shook Colt long enough for the fighter to deliver a left overhand punch to knock Colt down to the mat. Colt responded to the count, but the glazed look in his eye made the referee call the match.
Disarrayed and angry for the ref decide the match, Colt gave up his childhood dreams of competing in the professionals. Afterwards, Colt would temporarily teach at his local gym located in Houston, Texas.
