(Sugar) Jackson Osei Bonsu (born 3 March 1981 in Ghana) is a Belgian welterweight professional boxer of Ghanaian descent. He started to call himself Sugar as a reference to Sugar Ray Robinson. Jackson has, in recent times, gained a large following in the UK and US, and in early 2008 was voted the 'Official Overseas Fighter' of internet boxing forum Boxing Rebels, replacing the charismatic Bobby Gunn. He is highly rated on many a true boxing fan's pound for pound list. In 1997, Jackson came to Belgium, where his father was already living. As boxing was his boyhood dream, he started to attend the Antwerpse Boksschool (English: Antwerp Boxing School). Currently, Jackson trains in Izegem.
