Youth Boxing at Peter Welch’s Gym

Peter Welch’s Southie gym lit up the PAL inbox when they offered a 6-week FREE youth camp last month.  Over 50 youth signed up to practice boxing drills and a variety of bodyweight and strength conditioning exercises along with cardiovascular & flexibility related activities which measurably improve their overall physical conditioning and mental focus.  The classes were overbooked and a few unlucky late sign ups were knocked out 🙁

Youth were also invited to a media night at the gym where they were inspired as Professional Boxers prepared for the BIG fight and also had a chance to meet some big time former Boston boxers like Kevin McBride.  Youth were given tickets to Hollywood Fight Night at the Agganis to watch Callum Walsh of Ireland take down Wesley Tucker.
