History

This boxing gym was founded by George William "Buck" McDuffie in 1970.

Buck was a professional boxing trainer and manger for most of his life.

When he passed away in 1985 he left the gym to his son George William "Sparky" McDuffie.

Sparky has dedicated his life to this gym and his fighters. He himself was a boxer for many years and

 won over 20 Golden Glove matches. He was trained by his father Buck until his passing.

Sparky has trained professional fighters such as Adolfo Washington, Richard Savage , and Jeff Williams.

He has also worked with promoters such as Patton Shear, Lou Douva, and Don King.

The boxers have not only traveled across  the United States but places such as Korea, Aruba, Marrorca,

 Mexico, and England.

The boxing gym has a very nostalgic look to it. We put the emphasis on the best training possible which is sticking with the basics and perfecting them.
