Middle School and High School Students, between 12:30pm and 3:00pm Monday through Friday, come for a free lunch, mentoring and gym training.

Professional Athletes from various sports and business leaders in the community come to give inspirational talks. Life lessons are learned - all at no charge. 195 students from 53 different Lee County Schools have participated so far.


The SJC Boxing Gym has helped countless individuals and done so many great things for the community throughout the years. Steve Canton has seen many great gyms and important organizations close after losing their leaders and, at the urging of others, has decided to initiate the SJC Boxing Legacy Fund to ensure that the SJC Boxing Gym will remain, under top leadership, to continue serving the community. With your support, the SJC Mentoring Program, the SJC Boxing Gym and the Florida Boxing Hall of Fame Museum (located in the same building as the gym) will live on and continue to have a major impact in Southwest Florida. We need your help, donate now, and keep the dream alive for those who need help the most – our kids – tomorrow’s leaders.

SJC Boxing is with Tim Anderson

Tim “Doc” Anderson was convicted for a crime he did not commit. He was found guilty of premeditated first degree murder and has been incarcerated since April 1995 in a Florida prison, serving life with no chance for parole.

Yes, Tim Anderson did shoot and kill his former promoter, Rick Parker, on that fateful day, but it definitely was not premeditated. If he had been convicted of anything less, he would have already served his time and been a free man.
