About Oregon Golden Gloves Boxing

Every year since 1926, in 87 cities across the United States, a series of statewide Golden Gloves Amateur Boxing tournaments take place. These tournaments qualify winners to advance to the annual National Golden Gloves Amateur Boxing Championships and from this event advance to the Olympic and National Teams. Such notable boxers to win the prestigious Golden Gloves events include Sugar Ray Robinson, Cassius Clay, and Rocky Marciano.

The Grand Avenue Boxing Gym has the distinct honor of hosting the annual Oregon Golden Gloves Tournament for amateur boxers and draws the best amateur boxing talent from California, Idaho, Washington and Canada. Many of these competitors are nationally ranked boxers and Olympic level qualifying boxers.
