“Bad” Brad Berkwitt retired from the US Navy (September 2006) with his 20 years and 28 days of Honorable Service to our country, and was honored in a Retirement Ceremony held in the Pentagon.
During his childhood, he fought as an amateur boxer for three years (80-83) out of North Miami Beach, Florida. He also is the successful Author of the boxing book: Boxing Interviews of a Lifetime. Brad’s passion for boxing which he credits his late Father Alvin Berkwitt, started in 1975, and to this day, is just as strong. In 2004, Berkwitt started Ringside Report “The Heart of Boxing” to bring a different approach to the sport which many sites were not doing.
“Bad” Brad has always had a deep respect for the fighters of the past who didn’t always get the credit they deserved and his goal in 2004 and still to this day, is to ensure all boxers get the respect and credit they deserve. That fact has never been more evident than when you read one of Berkwitt’s hundreds of interviews, over the last 16 years with some of the biggest names in boxing from yesteryear and present day.
On top of his CEO duties, “Bad” Brad appeared as a boxing analyst, from 2000 – 2012, on News Channel 8 Sports Talk TV Show with Host Glenn Harris, that is viewed in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.
He also has been a guest on ESPN Radio and various other radio shows throughout the country.
His nickname “Bad” came from fellow Author and Boxing Ring Announcer, Henry “Dis-com-bob-u-lating” Jones in 2000 and has stuck ever since. In Henry’s words, “I gave him that nickname because he always stands up for what he believes in, and the fighters truly respect him for being so positive in all of his interviews.”
In 2013, “Bad” Brad followed in the footsteps of his late father, Alvin, starting an acting career that has already seen a level of success. Brad has worked in film and TV to include, HBO’s VEEP, House of Cards, several shows for the ID Network, industrial videos and live dinner theater. Like all actors, he is looking for that career defining role that puts him on the fast track to Hollywood.
Outside of boxing, he is an old time movie and music buff who was probably born in the wrong generation. His love of the classic singers along with the newer ones such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Dame Shirley Bassey, Chuck Brown, Rick James, Al Martino, Dean Martin, and French Diva “The Little Sparrow” Edith Piaf to name just a few, truly do set him back in a time where singers really sang some great standards.
Grim is a child of the 60’s and no doubt when you meet him with his laid back way, you will see he came from the right generation. A boxing-fitness nut, he has competed in body building contests and then went into boxing. First to stay in shape, then to go on and train fighters. If he is not in the gym, he is working his magic on many websites which he does for a living.
