History of White Collar Boxing

White Collar Boxing originated in the legendary Gleason's gym in New York in 1988. The first contest was held between Dr. Richard Novak an attorney and Dr. David Lawrence who held a Phd. in English Literature.

After the contest the two Gentlemen went to dinner to celebrate the birth of a new sport. Since then White Collar Boxing has been the fastest growing corporate contact sport in the world.

John Rooney Jnr. then owner and operator of the Gleason's Gym UK franchise introduced White Collar Boxing to the City of London in 2003.  There are White Collar Boxing Training classes now running in Rooney's Boxing Gym on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Book in and learn to box or prepare for an upcoming event.
