“You’ll be able to spit nails, kid… you’re gonna eat lighting and you’re gonna crap thunder. You’re gonna become a very dangerous person,” says Mickey Goldmill.
You think you’ve got what it takes, kid?! If you’re in South Florida, and you’re not afraid to test out your glass jaw, then you should look into the world-class boxing training facility in your backyard. Right here in Hollywood, FL, sits one of the premier boxing gyms in the country: The Heavyweight Factory.
Train with the best at The Heavyweight Factory. World-class boxing trainers are looking for “cream of the crop” athletes with dreams of becoming the next heavyweight champion. Former world champions train a select few to represent South Florida as the next heavy champion of the world. For superior collegiate athletes who never caught their break, the opportunity to train in a legendary gym for a shot at rebuilding an athletic career isn’t as far off as it may seem. The Heavyweight Factory isn’t even necessarily looking for athletes with a boxing background. They’re looking for the heart, the desire, the physical conditioning, and the drive to be the next heavyweight champion of the world.
Heavyweights Wladimir Klitschko and Shannon Briggs (Let’s go champ!) are among the bruisers that train at The Heavyweight Factory. Evander Holyfield and Riddick Bowe pop in from time to time to talk shop. Miguel Cotto has trained at The Heavyweight Factory.
The gym boasts a 15,000 sq. foot facility with three rings that never seem to be unoccupied. The Heavyweight Factory has been a regional stronghold in the professional fighters’ world for years, and continues to be synonymous with “South Florida boxing” today. For those with the heart of a lion and a build like Iron Mike, there’s no better gym in the region.
The Heavyweight Factory is as well known to South Florida fighters as the sunny beaches are to tourists.
