At the ages of four and five, Cody and Zach, respectively, had already been dabbling into boxing with their uncle Robert Meese who was an Olympic alternate in the sport. At Claymont High School, Garbrandt competed in wrestling and football, winning a state championship as a freshman in 2007, by defeating Zach Neibert, 4–2, and was a runner-up in 2008. After failing to claim the second state championship, Garbrandt became the NHSCA Sophomore National runner–up and subsequently stopped wrestling and convinced his mother to let him start training boxing seriously. Despite not competing in wrestling during his final two years of high school, Garbrandt competed at the national tournament as a senior and placed fifth, claiming All–American honors and receiving interest from several NCAA Division I schools, such as Penn State and Rutgers. I was doing boxing, and that’s what I wanted to do.” After dropping out, Garbrandt sold weed, worked as a bouncer, and eventually completed coal miner training in order to work in the field familiar to his family.
