Newly-formed boxing gym Future Champions Boxing Club (FCBC), located at 22 Mary Street downtown Charleston, is already making noise in the ring. Two of FCBC’s boxers have advanced to the Silver Gloves Regional Championships in Fort Washington, Maryland, which takes place January 5-7, 2018.
14-year old JaDen Sheppard (right – Girl’s class) and 9-year old Jaquez Washington (left – Boy’s class) competed in the South Carolina Silver Gloves Championship in North Augusta December 9-10. Both boxers are undefeated in competition thus far.
Sheppard holds a Georgia State Championship title while Washington has a championship under his belt in Florida.
Gerard Norton, trainer and coach for the gym, formed FCBC in April 2017. He has a team of nearly 10 boxers that have potential and can join their teammates as champions with dedication and hard work. The club is always looking for more talent to add to their roster.
