Running since 1946, Brighton and Hove Boxing Gym is an outstanding boxing facility, located in the King Alfred complex. Many a Champion has walked through its doors including Tyson Fury, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield, Roy Jones Jr, Marvin Hagler… to name a few.

More recently there has been a new expansion, with a brand new room built creating more space to train. Whilst the gym is primarily a boxing gym created for amateur boxers and their coaching teams, BHBT are firm believers that the facilities should be available for everyone, regardless of age, ability or experience and as such has enlisted the services of first class coaches who have the experience to assist anyone, whether professional, amateur or those that just want to box for fitness to achieve their goals.

We are a registered charity providing training and coaching to people of all age groups and abilities within the Brighton and Hove area. We rely on donations to maintain the facilities and would love your support.

Amateur Boxing

Pro Boxing

Adaptive Boxing

Amateur boxing is a life skill. It teaches sacrifice, self-discipline and wellbeing. Boxing works on more than your physical fitness, it will improve overall body strength, cardio-vascular health and hand-eye co-ordination,  but more than that, you can improve your mental wellbeing, reducing stress, improving sleep and confidence while joining an inclusive community.

We can help you realise your dream of becoming a professional boxer.

Any aspiring professional boxer must be willing to reach his or her maximum fitness potential. It requires motivation, sacrifice and discipline to become a professional boxer. Our coaches are proud to have trained a number of professional boxers, leading them to many victories. We are dedicated to providing the same to anyone serious about becoming a professional boxer.

We believe everyone should be able to access sport.

The Safer Adaptive Boxing Programme has been designed to remove barriers and to provide people of every ability access to safe and high-quality boxing training.

We strive to increase accessibility, inclusion, and diversity in the world of boxing. The coaches teaching this programme are trained in The Safer Adaptive Boxing Coaches Programme to ensure they have an in-depth understanding of the anatomical and social impacts of various disabilities, in addition to practical knowledge of how to train people experiencing all disabilities.
