We are a family of boxing fanatics, professional champions, elite amateur fighters and seasoned trainers. Nestled just north of Old Town, near Braddock Road Metro, Alexandria Boxing Club has been home to some of the area’s most talented fighters since the early 1980’s.
Formerly known as the Fred Smith boxing center, after the late Coach Fred Smith, the Alexandria Boxing Club strives to better the lives of youth through the sport of boxing. Coaches Kay Koroma, Dennis Porter and Ron Simms work with athletes of all ages and experience levels six days a week and the hours of hard work has paid off for the gym’s dedicated coaches and athletes. In 2014 alone, ALX athletes have won seven national championships and the gym’s success has caught the attention of national boxing dignitaries.
Our doors are open to all experience levels. All participants must be registered with Charles Houston Recreation Center, which is free for Alexandria City Residents.
