BOXING, WRESTLING, YOUTH WORK
Sully's Toronto Youth and Athletic Club is the
oldest Boxing and Wrestling Club in Canada. Founded as a boy's club in
1943, the club is now fully co-ed, and has served as a place where
dreams can come true to literally thousands of boys and girls as well as
men and women. To understand the philosophy of the club is to go back
to it's roots and hear Sully himself say:
"It's better to build boys--than mend men."
Known world wide for its tremendous boxing program it would be almost
impossible for any aspiring boxer in Toronto to avoid
attending the best-known club of them all! World renowned fighters such
as Muhammed Ali, George Chuvalo, Sugar Ray Leonard, Carlos Newton, Clyde Grey, Spider Jones & Sully's
own Marsha Valley (pictured above) have all trained at Sully's sometime
throughout their illustrious careers. Programs offered at the club
include mens, womens and children's boxing & boxercise classes.
World Champion wrestlers the likes of which include Edouard Carpentier, Tiger Jeet Singh, Johnny Powers and "Whipper" Billy Watson have all climbed into the ring at Sully's.
