Lisa Bauch, Uppercut Boxing Gym

Sparring and competition
Some boxers wish to take their class and individual training to the next level by sparring in a controlled environment. Uppercut offers members the opportunity to hone their skills through sparring based on the concept of "White Collar Boxing," created at Gleason's Boxing Gym in Brooklyn, N.Y. "White Collar Boxing" allows individuals to step in the ring to compete, often white-collar professionals, to try their skills in the ring.

Members who wish to become amateur or professional fighters may register and compete through Uppercut Gym or independent trainers. Uppercut's two full-sized rings allow the gym to hold Golden Gloves, and other amateur and pro boxing cards
