The Watertown Boxing Club is proud to bring history back to Watertown in January. Famous boxers like Joe Louis, Jack Dempsey and even Hulk Hogan have boxed at historic Turner Hall in Watertown in the past.

Saturday, January 29 from 4pm – 11pm, and Sunday, January 30 from 3pm – 8pm will be a return to the glory days of boxing in Watertown at Turner Hall, with many more boxing events planned for the future. The leaders of this two-day event will proceed to the Regional Tournament, sponsored by the US Olympic Committee, followed by the National Championship and finally, the World Amateur Title.

Watertown is excited to host the first of these events, and welcomes boxing fans to Turner Hall and to all of the restaurants and shops that grace the charming streets of their community. For additional information on attending this event, or to register to box in the tournament in January, contact Augie Magestro at 920-253-8084.
