WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman announced over the weekend that he would join the attendees and other dignitaries at this year’s 20th Anniversary Gleason’s Gym Boxing Fantasy Camp in Atlantic City in August. Gleason’s Gym owner Bruce Silverglade added that the WBC President would bring former WBC champions along as his guests; names will be released subsequently.

Bruce said this was wonderful news, truly fitting for this year’s platinum anniversary camp. “Having Mauricio, who’s such a pillar to boxing throughout the world, and someone who’s helped so many people is one of the highest honors. It’s quite humbling,” said Bruce. “Boxing may be the only sport where you train right next to world champions and top contenders, and that’s often true at Gleason’s. And, for the Fantasy Camp, we guarantee it for four straight days,“ he continued.

The Cathedral Of Boxing 

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.

The oldest gym of its kind in New York City is all new, and more popular than ever.
