Bailey Bobbitt – Co-Founder of American Petrolog and Former Professional Boxer

Bailey Bobbitt, Vice-President and founding member of American Petrolog joins Discover Lafayette to share his story of entrepreneurship.

American Petrolog’s focus of providing safe transportation and world-class customer service has made the company an industry-recognized leading provider of logistics services to the chemical industry.

The interesting thing about Bailey Bobbitt was that he was also a professional boxer known as ‘Bang Bang’ from 2009 to 2013 with 9 wins, 2 losses, and 5 knockouts, who trained under the tutelage of Chad Broussard. Bailey might still be boxing but for a serious retina injury that threatened to render him blind. His focus, drive, and competitiveness in sports and business make his story a compelling one that exemplifies the spirit of Lafayette that we all love.

Bailey is a Lafayette native who attended Cathedral Carmel and St. Leo Seton Schools before his family moved to Houston during the oil bust of the late 80’s. He played football at UL Lafayette and Sam Houston State as a punter and kicker.

He and his wife, Holly, are active members of of Our Lady of Fatima Church. Bailey serves on Our Lady of Fatima School’s Finance and Master Plan Committees. Holly is a special education teacher at the school. They are the proud parents of two young boys, Major and Maverick.
