Future Boxing is privileged to have the best coaches and trainers in the city of Rochester.
Robert Johnson has 42 years of amateur and professional training. Floyd Peavy has 25 years experience as a professional boxer and Phil Greene has over 10 years experience as a personal trainer. Future Boxing has recently had six boxers go to the national championship in Kansas City, where five out of six returned with championship belts. Two of our boxers were invited to fight for the United States team in 2007 Aliyeu Cup Championship, in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The district begins the first week in December. It consists of three teams from the regions of New York, Buffalo, Geneva, Rochester and Syracuse. The Juniors are between the ages of 9-16 and from January 5th-6th, are headed to Oliona, New York. The teams consist of those from NJ, CT, NE and Rochester, NY. The Nationals are held in Kansas City from January 30th – February 3rd and there are 44 states competing.
In April, the Juniors — ages of 8-16, from Rochester, Syracuse, Geneva, Buffalo and Canada will compete in Rochester, NY at the Baden St. Recreation Center. The winners will then go to Regionals in Lake Placid, NY, where teams from all over NY, CT, and NJ will compete. The Winner and Runner Up from Regional’s will then go on to Nationals, which is held in Marquette, MI in the Olympic Training Facility. Nationals are for one month where students will attend school and will be paid for per diem competing.
The Olympic coach will then pick teams to compete in the Junior World Championship where they will compete against 12 countries. We have two Juniors who have ranked Number One in the US — Brandon and Lavias Williams, that will have a chance to attend the World Championships.
Seniors consist of ages 17-34. They begin the same as Junior Districts, with Regionals, then Nationals. Nationals will take place in Cincinnati, OH this year. The tournament lasts about a week, February 4 – 11th, where the winner will earn a spot in the Olympic Trial. If a competitor does not win the Nationals, he or she can compete in the Western or Eastern trials to try and make the Olympic qualifiers. Teams and coaches are responsible for their own transportation, room and board, and expenses. If he or she wins, he or she can compete in the Olympic Trials. The Olympic Coach will pick a random Winner and Runner Up to join the Olympic Team from the ABF, the National Gloves, the Eastern Trials, the Western Trials, the Army, Navy, and/or the Marines.
Our coaches always volunteer their time, energy and dedication in helping our youth to achieve their goals.
