You might be frozen right now, in a state of panic. Christmas beckons and Santa is stuck in a mode—Santa doesn’t know what to get for the person who has everything.

I am here to help…

Well, for the boxing inclined, anyway…

Here’s a suggestion for a thrill-of-a-lifetime gift for that certain someone in your life, man, women, boy or girl, who has latched onto the sweet science and wants to learn the ins, outs and finer points of pugilism.


Bruce Silverglade (below) has for almost 40 years been running the famed and fabled fight factory, now located in the buzziest of locations, DUMBO, Brooklyn. He tells us why a ticket to attend the 2018 Gleason’s Gym Fantasy Boxing Camp is money superbly spent.

Call owner Silverglade and book a spot at the 2018 Gleason’s Gym Fantasy Boxing Camp. Call 347-460-6734 and get the thrill of a lifetime gift for a loved one.


“It’s the perfect gift for anybody getting started in boxing or getting deeper into it,” Silverglade told NYF. The gift recipeint will attend camp from Aug. 9-12, 2018, at Honor’s Haven, NY, a four-star resort, and will love to meet all their heroes, and get one on one time with Mark Breland, Iran Barkley, Carlos Ortiz, spend time in the ring with Juan Laporte, Yuri Foreman, Alicia Ashley, learning the basics from true champions! It’s a thrill coming to the Catskills, an old style camp and being with these heroes. Then you go back to your gym, and learn the rest of sport. If you are new into it or just enthusiastic, it’s just a great opportunity to be face to face with these champions, talk to them about their fights and talk about your technique and plans. It’s a thrill for anyone who loves boxing!”
