When Deacon Allen passed away in 1964, Sully purchased the Toronto Athletic Club and moved it from 1290 Queen St. W to 109 Ossington Ave, above a car collision repair business. Sully had been operating the club for two years prior to purchasing the boxing club. Along with the physical move, the club also changed its emphasis from a training area for potential pro boxers to a center for misdirected youth. Sure boxing was taken seriously, but it was now a vehicle for helping youth get on the right track rather than boxing alone.

For the past seven decades, Sully’s has been home to many famous Canadian boxers and International stars, such as George Chuvalo, Clyde Gray, Fern Bull,and Lennox Lewis. In fact the legendary Muhammed Ali even trained at Sully’s.

While it’s those big name boxers who have helped to create Sully’s legendary status in the boxing world, Sully’s real identity comes from the thousands of kids who have come there over the years because they wanted to learn to box.

Sully’s also hosts Canada’s top elite amateur boxers and coaches. Our champion fighters have brought home trophies like the Brampton Cup, Silver Gloves, and even the Golden Gloves.
