Buddy Scott was the younger brother of lightweight Howard Scott and Tommy Scott. Although he fought many bouts in Florida for a few years (which state was sometimes reported as being his boxing headquarters), Oklahoma, and Washington D.C., his home-base was always Texas. During his boxing career, Scott fought from flyweight (as an amateur), then from middleweight to heavyweight as a pro, but was primarily known as a heavyweight boxer. Later, Scott trained Tommy Bain.

Buddy Scott succumbed to leukemia.
