Phoenix Boys Center


2116 W Buckeye Rd. 85009 Phoenix, Arizona
Al Fenn opened the doors to the Phoenix Boys Center Boxing Gym in 1965, now the oldest gym in Arizona still open and free for the community. Al always wanted to help the youth stay out of the streets and gangs. He promoted wrestling and boxing, was a manager and trainer. He established amateur boxing in Arizona. He promoted AZ Golden Gloves AZ Junior Golden Gloves and State Fair Copper Gloves since 1970. The gym continues to stay open under the direction of my cousin Kelly Fenn. Arizona Golden Gloves is currently directed by her with the help of her family as well. With many successful years behind them, they plan on many more successful events in the coming years!

March 11, 2011 - Boxer Jesus Gonzales at the Phoenix Boys Center Boxing

Jesus Gonzales hears every one of them. Their voices in unison, chanting "El Martillo." The hammer. The hammer. The cheering, bellowing from the people of Phoenix -- his city -- lifted him and pushed him toward victory. That and a lightning left hand.

Gonzales didn't disappoint in his first bout in Phoenix in four years and his second ever in three. The southpaw fighter defeated Dhafir Smith of Philadelphia via unanimous decision (119-108, 118-109, 118-109) to earn the vacant IBF North American Suoer Middleweight title belt in the "Rise of Phoenix II" main event on 03/18/11.
