Troy Amos-Ross (born July 17, 1975 in Georgetown, Guyana) is a Guyanese Canadian boxer, currently residing in Brampton, Ontario. He competed in the light heavyweight (< 81 kg) division at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia and 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.
He is the son of retired boxer Charles Amos who represented Guyana at the 1968 Summer Olympics and first cousin of Egerton Marcus who won the silver medal for Canada in the Middleweight division at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, Korea.
In the 1996 Olympics, after having defeated Roland Raforme (Seychelles) and Paul M'Bongo (Cameroon), Ross lost 14-8 in quarterfinals to Kazakhstan's eventual gold medalist Vassili Jirov. Ross entered the 2000 Olympics as a gold medal hopeful, however he was eliminated after a disappointing loss in his first fight.
Ross turned pro after the 2000 Summer Olympics, however he announced his retirement in 2005 after compiling an impressive record of 13-1, due to the inability to get quality fights. In 2007 Troy began a comeback and on March 19, 2007 he captured the Commonwealth Cruiserweight title by knocking out John Keeton in the second round.
Ross has also achieved success out of the ring starting his own fashion line, Ross Wear, and playing roles in Hollywood movies. He appeared in the 2005 movie Cinderella Man opposite Russell Crowe playing the role of heavyweight boxer John Henry Lewis. Ross also appeared in the 2007 movie Resurrecting the Champ with Josh Hartnett and Samuel L. Jackson, playing the younger version of the champ. He also appears in the movie Phantom Punch, in the role of Heavyweight boxer Floyd Patterson.
In 2008 Troy joined the cast of the boxing reality TV show The Contender filming in Singapore. He became a member of the gold team and on 14 January 2009 won his first round contest against Australian Lawrence Tauasa. He fought American Felix Cora Jr. in the quarter finals winning when the fight was stopped after 2:48 of the first round. In the semi finals Troy faced Nigerian Akinyemi Laleye, the fight was scored 50-45 by all three judges in Troy's favor. Troy fought another Nigerian, Ehinomen Ehikhamenor, in the Contender final on February 25, 2009 at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. Ross defeated Ehikhamenor by fourth round TKO to become the Contender Champion.
