Detroit's Downtown Boxing Gym

Detroit’s Downtown Boxing Gym offers a space for Detroit youth to work out and train. It also serves as an after school program to tutor, encourage studying and teach life skills. The gym’s mantra is "Books Before Boxing."

"[I'm] just trying to put everybody on the right path, give everybody a safe place to go," the gym’s founder, Carlo "Khali" Sweeney said.
