Sullivan Boxing Club Taking Boxing World By Storm

the Sullivan Boxing Club has great things coming their way.

The Sullivan Boxing Club was started in 1979 by John Casey. His mentorship helped pave the way for many boxing stars, such as hometown hero Corky Saul.

Everyone knows him as the face of the Sullivan Boxing Club, but his tragic passing last month left a big hole in the heart of the local boxing club.

The new owner and head coach Robby Spear is looking forward to many great things that the boxing club is doing.

Spear has had plenty of experience in the ring. He won the Golden Gloves tournament in 1987.

The Golden Gloves boxing tournament is an annual tournament that gathers the greatest boxers from all over the states in each class. Spear and assistant coach,Tony Shaw, are training boxers every day to get them ready for their many upcoming bouts. Spear and Shaw have many years of boxing experience that they teach regularly.

Both coaches use their in-ring experience to make their students better people and boxers. Both are USA boxing coaches with eight registered boxers on their roster.

Elliot Brogly is 21-years-old and will be making his debut at the Golden Gloves tournament. Brogly is very motivated and a hard worker. He trains diligently every day and is ready to take the boxing world by storm. Brogly will debut in the 140-pound weight class and knows that he will be competing with more experienced boxers, but trains harder to earn the respect of his peers.

Calvin Wiser is 10-years-old and is super resilient in his class. He has boxed in a match before, which ended with a referee stoppage. Wiser wanted to continue to fight, but the referee put a stop to the match due to his bloody nose.

Wiser fought on Friday against Carter Melton from Carlisle, Ill., and was defeated by a close decision.

Sakora Lockhart is a huge contender to be the greatest in the world of boxing. She has a beginner attitude outside the ring with a veteran attitude in the ring. Lockhart has an outstanding undefeated record so far.

She is ready for the Golden Gloves tournament. Lockhart has a tough time finding opponents, being one of very few female amateur boxers.

She has the reputation of being a female Mike Tyson in the ring and that makes her male-dominated sport very scared about facing her. Sakora fought on Friday as well and was victorious in her bout. Her record stands at 3-0.

Spear and Shaw would like to thank Steve and Donna Thurmond for their continued support. They would also like to thank Tommy Lockhart of Thomas Lockhart Roofing for his help with the club.
