Moss Side Boxing is legendary in these parts. It was started back in 1981 by the much-loved former pro boxer Phil Martin whose vision was to help motivate the local community and train champions.

He succeeded in both before sadly dying young from cancer. The gym has inspired many in the city to lead better lives and is arguably the most successful in the UK having trained countless pro boxing champions like Maurice Core and Frank Grant.

But don’t let that intimidate you. One of the reasons Moss Side has been so successful over the years is the friendliness of the coaches that have created an electric atmosphere for everyone.

They hold classes for adults at 6pm on Mon, Weds, and Friday, and at the same time for juniors (age 10-15) on Tuesday and Thursday.

In case you’re wondering, Champs Camp is the name given to the program here focused on training competitive amateurs and pros. Have you got what it takes?

P.S. don’t confuse this with Moss Side Fire Station Boxing Club – they are totally different (but both awesome) gyms.
