Repton Boys Club
The Repton is one of the most famous boxing clubs in the UK and is recognised globally for its boxing heritage fully deserved of the title "home of champions". Although housed in a beautiful Victorian bathhouse the gymnasium is undoubtedly a place of work. The Gym's rawness is evident and the blood, sweat, tears and discipline required to achieve in boxing are etched on the faces of the previous notorious boxers whose pictures stare down at the young pretenders from the "wall of fame".
The skills required to become an elite boxer are taught, developed and honed by the Repton's elite coaching staff which is headed by Tony Burns MBE. Tony has coached at The Repton for over 45 years and is pictured with many of the greats in boxing history including Muhammed Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard.
