Main St, Gym is hosting our third annual “Concert/Dance in the Ring III”. With the help of our Major Sponsor Pohanka Of Salisbury this will be another great event. This is our major Spring Fundraiser and it happens on Sat March 11th with the doors opening at 6:30 and appetizers at that time, Then a Buffet Catered by Chef Stuart of Flannery’s and the show kicks off of the show at 7:45pm.
This year Coach Hal will MC the show and we were very fortunate to get the very popular band “On the Edge” one of thee best cover dance bands in the east central region.
The Main St. Gym program has grown each year and is closing in on capacity attendance each night. A large make up of our kids cannot afford dues, equipment, registration, or a combination of all three, and because of events like Concert in the Ring we have never turned away one young boy or girl for financial reasons. We take great pride in being able to keep these kids in the program and growing in the right direction through our highly disciplined program.
We would love to have you come out this year and enjoy the evening. At present we are 2/3 sold and a table of 8 seats is $350. Individual ticket are $45 each and all tickets include appetizers and the buffet. There is also a full cash bar. So done wait and give Coach Hal a call and lock in a table. Like all that have attended before,,,You’ll be glad you did.

Across the country and in cities like New York, Dallas, Cincinnati and many more, the oldest, most popular boxing tournament in the history of the sport has begun, the 2017 Golden Gloves.
Started back in 1923, the Golden Gloves began when a sports editor of the Chicago Tribune wanted to have a citywide tournament to find the best amateur boxers in the city. In 1927 Chicago challenged New York City in a competition and soon cities across the nation were holding Golden Glove Tournaments.
Eventually it got more organized and boundaries were drawn to hold city championships, regional championships and finally the National Golden Gloves Championships.
The names of Golden Glove Champions are a list of the who’s who of boxing, including, Joe Louis ,Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Muhammad Ali, Thomas Hearns, Oscar De La Hoya, Evander Holyfield, Marvin Hagler and many more.
The Washington D.C. Golden Gloves got under way last week at the Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD., and will have bouts each Saturday evening until the Championships.
This year, Main St Gym of Salisbury has eight boxers entered in the event. There are three basic divisions. They are junior, novices, and open class. Only Novices and Open Class advance to the Regional Championships and only Open Class are qualified to advance to the National Championships.
Last Saturday, two of Main St. Gym’s boxers were entered. Brendan Naranjo walked away with the 2017 132lb Junior Championship, and in Novice Division, Markese Hines got a solid win to advance in this week's competition.
