Bronco Banyon McKart was born on March 20, 1971, in Monroe, Michigan. He turned professional boxer in 1992. He fought in the super welterweight division (154 lbs) and also in the middleweight (160 lbs) division. In 1996 he captured the World Boxing Organization Light Middleweight title by beating Santos Cardona by TKO, but lost the title in his first defense against Winky Ronald Wright in his hometown Monroe on May 17, 1996. His mementos were on exhibit for 5 years and we currently have a case on display.
As of 2011, he continues to meet the challenges of the boxing world.
His select items are now placed among other notable Monroe-ites such as the Monroe Auto Equipment (MAECO) founding families and Kaye Lani Rafko Wilson, Monroe's Miss America from 1988. These displays are currently located in the elevator lobby located on the museum's main floor.
