Meet Bruce Silverglade
President, Gleason's Gym
Over the last thirty years, Bruce Silverglade has been busy keeping one of boxing’s grandest traditions alive. He is the driving force behind Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn, a boxing treasure since 1937.
One of the last of New York City’s thriving boxing gyms, Gleason’s has been the training headquarters for such legends as Jake LaMotta, Muhammad Ali and Roberto Duran. In all, 131 World Champions have trained inside the gym’s hallowed walls. Currently five active title holders workout at Gleason’s as well as numerous contenders and dozens of Golden Gloves champions. And yes, women train at Gleason’s too.
"Now, whoever has courage, and a strong and collected spirit in his breast, let him come forward, lace on the gloves and put up his hands."
Virgil (The Aeneid, Book 5)

COME TO THE GYM
The oldest gym of its kind in New York City is all new, and more popular than ever.
Eighty years after it was founded in the heart of the Bronx, The Hub at 149th St. and Third Ave., and three decades after arriving in Brooklyn, Gleason’s Gym is thriving in new quarters in the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge.
“It’s busier now than it’s ever been,” says owner Bruce Silverglade. “It’s a good thing.”
