Spotlight: Joe Hand Promotions

As a commitment to growing the sport of boxing and giving back to the surrounding community, Joe Hand Promotions is opening a “pure” boxing gym available to aspiring boxers looking to train, get in shape, prepare for an upcoming bout, or to ‘train like a fighter’.

Boxing has been at the roots of Joe Hand Promotions since the company’s inception more than 50 years ago when Joe Hand, Sr. was the manager of boxing legend Joe Frazier.

Today, the company is the leading provider of live content, including UFC, PBC, WWE events and more to sports bars, restaurants and local dining establishments. They present more than 25,000 events to establishments while boosting their food and beverage sales, expanding their customer base and increasing their late-night revenues.

Well-equipped with a standard boxing ring, speed bags, heavy bags, dumbbells, treadmills, bikes, ellipticals, jump rope stations, ropes, and tires, as well as men and women locker rooms, it’s everything you need to stay active.

Additionally, the Joe Hand Gym provides physical therapy treatment for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. No one with Parkinson’s Disease is refused regardless of their financial status.

The centerpiece of the Joe Hand Gym is a life-size bronzed sculpture of the Joe Frazier vs. Muhammad Ali “Fight of the Century” from March 8th, 1971.
