Corey Sanders is an American boxing trainer and former professional boxer. Known as "T-Rex", Sanders' most notable victory came in an upset knockout against future WBC world champion Oleg Maskaev in 2002, which temporarily derailed Maskaev's plans of fighting for a title. Sanders' other notable opponents included Michael Grant, Andrew Golota, DaVarryl Williamson and Timo Hoffmann. Sanders is perhaps best remembered for his wild brawl with Golota, which saw both fighters trading heavy blows on the inside throughout the fight, and Sanders receiving a gruesome, deep cut above his left eye.
