Muhammad Ali trained at the 5th St. Gym under the tutelage of his trainer, our mentor, the greatest Boxing trainer of all time and the man who’s name is synonymous with this gym, the one of a kind, Angelo Dundee. 65 Years later we continue to abide by the same motto of training here. Angelo guided him as Ali became the most famous man in the world and is still revered today as we saw in the 2012 Olympics. Our motto here is, “Train like the GOAT. You do not have to be a fighter in the ring of boxing, only in the ring of life.”

Enjoy some of Ali’s quotes:

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’”

“The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.”

“The man who has no imagination has no wings.”

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”

“Life is a gamble. You can get hurt, but people die in plane crashes, lose their arms and legs in car accidents; people die every day. Same with fighters: some die, some get hurt, some go on. You just don’t let yourself believe it will happen to you.”

“Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.”

“Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. It’s just plain wrong.”
