BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A former professional boxer from Idaho who made a name for himself as the “Emmett Eliminator” by smashing his way through the cruiserweight division can add another title: lottery winner.

Idaho Lottery officials announced Thursday that Kenny Keene is the Weekly Grand winner and will receive $1,000 a week for 52 weeks.

The 45-year-old Keene retired from boxing in 2006 with a 51-4 record.

Before retiring, he thrilled fans with a straight ahead brawler style, winning cruiserweight titles from the International Boxing Association, International Boxing Council, and World Boxing Federation.

He now runs Kenny Keene’s Bail Bonds in Emmett.
