Kean is a true heavyweight standing at 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds.

The Quebec fighter made an impressive comeback in 2012, recovering from shoulder surgery and he also severely damaged his leg in an all-terrain accident in 2010 and narrowly avoided amputation.

He is one of only two Canadian men to box at the London Games. Custio Clayton, 69 kg division, is the other.
