Welcome to the official site of the Celtic Boxing Club. The Celtic Boxing Club is a traditional boxing gym located on Chicago's South Side in the Mt. Greenwood/Beverly Hills neighborhood. The Celtic Boxing Club was founded in 1993 by Mike Joyce. Mike Joyce is an attorney and former professional boxer who started the Celtic Boxing Club to give neighborhood kids a place to learn the skills of boxing in order to box competitively.
Many Celtic Boxing Club members have had distinguished amateur and even professional boxing careers. Most Celtic Boxing Club members have used the confidence and work ethic acquired through participating in boxing training to lead successful personal careers in other fields.
The Celtic Boxing Club is now open to those of all age and skill levels who want to get into fantastic physical condition while learning how to box without the physical contact in a safe and positive environment. The Celtic Boxing workout is challenging and designed to increase strength, speed, stamina and confidence even for those who have no intention of boxing competitively.
The Celtic Boxing Club is a registered Illinois State Crime Commission/Police Athletic League of Illinois sports program. Each year the Celtic Boxing Club hosts several boxing competitions to benefit worthy charitable causes.
