Bronco Banyon McKart (born March 20, 1971 in Monroe, Michigan) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1992 to 2014. He held the WBO light middleweight title in 1996 and also challenged for the IBF and WBA titles. McKart is best known for his trilogy of fights against Winky Wright.

Professional career[edit]

Nicknamed "Superman", McKart turned pro in 1992 and in 1996 captured the WBO Light Middleweight Title by beating Santos Cardona by TKO. He lost the title in his first defense to Winky Wright. In 2000, he would have the opportunity to avenge the loss, taking on Wright in an eliminator for IBF Light Middleweight Title. Wright won a dominant decision. In 2002 the two re-matched again, this time for Wright's IBF Light Middleweight Title. McKart was disqualified after trailing severely in the fight. In 2004 he took on WBA Light Middleweight Title holder Travis Simms, but lost a decision. In 2006 he was knocked out by the then undefeated prospect Kelly Pavlik. He fought Anthony Mundine at Palms Casino Resort on 14 July 2012.
