"In 2009, a therapist encouraged me to try boxing and that one decision changed my life. Boxing has allowed me to regulate my emotions, has continued to sharpen my mind and has given me confidence in my ability to overcome any obstacle. I am committed to elevating my skills as a boxing coach, in order to give people the same opportunities I have received from the sport."
-Cleveland Hughes, founder
