| Anthony Hembrick|
Anthony Hembrick (born February 22, 1966, Detroit, Michigan) was an amateur champion American boxer in the middleweight class and a member of the 1988 US Olympics team.
Hembrick is best known for never having had the opportunity to fight in the 1988 Olympics. Hembrick and his coach, Ken Adams, misinterpreted the fight schedule. Afterwards, they blamed the schedule for being too confusing. By the time Hembrick arrived at Chamshil Students' Gymnasium twelve minutes late, he had been disqualified and the match was being awarded to South Korean Ha Jong-Ho.
Hembrick was the 1986 and 1987 United States Amateur Middleweight champion, while boxing for United States Army. He later was the US Olympic representative at Middleweight in 1988.
As a pro, Hembrick never lived up to his potential. He turned pro in 1989 and unsuccessfully challenged WBO light heavyweight title holder Leeonzer Barber, losing a split decision. Hembrick lost in his other title opportunity as well, in 1993 to IBF light heavyweight title holder Henry Maske. He retired in 1996.
