Sylvester Stallone Is producing Termites Movie on his Life Story... STAY TUNED
Maurice “Termite “ Watkins is a former boxer from Houston, Texas. Nicknamed Termite, he was born into a family that was in the insect killing business, and he is a professional fumigator. Watkins turned professional as a boxer on May 21, 1974, beating Cesar Cortez by knockout in round one in Houston. Through his career, Watkins fought some of the best fighters in the Lightweight and Jr. Welterweight divisions.
Maurice “Termite” Watkins always loved a good fight. With a nickname like Termite and being a scrawny little kid he was offered many opportunities. From the age of 10 years old his passion was to be a champion. He realized that dream many times over by becoming our Nation’s first 16 year old Golden Gloves Champion(with an amateur record of 128 wins and 10 losses),by becoming a professional boxer(with a record of 58 wins, 5 losses, 2 draws, and 48 knock-outs),and by concluding his career with a fight for the coveted world title!
After his legendary career he was asked to go to Iraq and use his pest control skills for our US military camps of bugs, scorpions, and snakes. Through a series of events he was soon asked to coach and qualify the Iraqi boxing team for the 2004 Olympics. He inspired the world and will inspire you as well, with his story of incredible perseverance overcoming daunting obstacles as he helped Iraq reach their Olympic dreams!
After the attacks of 911, Termite felt an overwhelming desire to help our military – he believed it was a calling of God – to serve his country. He asked what he could do for his country. The surprising answer was pest control, the business he’d learned as a child from his father. The coalition needed someone to go into Iraq to rid military camps of snakes, scorpions and bugs so Termite headed to Iraq.
Along with mentoring kids today, he continues to inspire and motivate via speaking engagements through-out the country. Termite’s fought for world championships, battled addiction, beat COVID-19 and even trained Iraqi boxers for the Olympics has caught the eyes and ears of Sylvester Stallone's production company, Balboa Productions, and they are making a feature film focused on Termite’s life. The Script is currently being written.. Date and Time of release TBD. STAY TUNED..
