Local boxing coach sells Youngstown boxing club building to downsize

Local News

Long-time local boxing coach Jack Loew is moving his gym.

Loew confirmed that the Community Corrections Association (CCA) purchased his South Side Boxing Club building along Market Street, so he will now move back to his old gym along Erie Street.

He says it makes sense for him to downsize, especially since the CCA made him an offer he just couldn’t refuse.

“That’s an old fashioned gym with four heavy bags instead of 10 heavy bags. You know, one ring instead of two rings. Five speed bags. Everything is just small sizing but it’s still gonna be the same 10-12 boxers,” he said.

Lowe says it will be a few more months before he moves his South Side Boxing Club back into the old building.
