The welterweight had a measure of popularity following his fight against Courtney Burton on July 6, 2004, which he lost by a controversial close decision. Even though the state of Michigan investigated the points verdict for Burton did not overthrow the result, he demanded a rematch.

He got it, avenging his loss to Burton on September 1, 2006, when he stopped Burton in the eighth round on ESPN with the help of a left hook to the body, which was the opposite of the result in their original fight when Augustus had disallowed a knockdown from a left hook to the body after referee Dan Kelley incorrectly claimed an illegal low blow caused the knockdown. 

Augustus' best career ratings-wise win was against Carlos Wilfredo Vilches on July 19, 2002. The boxer fought in seventy-eight professional matches, won thirty-eight matches, and lost thirty-four. Augustus won his last title of WBO Oriental welterweight in July 2008. Emanuel announced his retirement at the end of the 2011 season.
