State Street Boxing Gym is located in an old brick and cement building, giving it an old school feeling where great world champs such as Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, and Jack Dempsey would have loved to come and train. The smell of leather, sweat and cement feel the air. Come watch the leather bags jump alive with each punch.
