What brought you to college boxing? Numerous reasons. I heard boxers undergo the toughest workout regimen of any athletes. I think with a little conditioning and a good bit of training, I can become somebody who can do the school proud. I want speed, power, notoriety, and the thrill of the fight.

What brought you to college boxing? Once I got out the navy, I moved to LA, boxed at Wild Card and from there I was hooked. After I got accepted to UM, I quickly checked if they had boxing. They did, I met the coaches, heard Mickey’s father’s story about winning two national championships and made the UM Hall of Fame. So from there on I made a goal for myself to obtain that or better.

Keith Jackson and our very own Mickey Demos are the trainers of the new, official University of Miami Boxing Club. It’s a club very close to our heart here at Biscayne Boxing and Fitness: Before the Committee on Student Organizations (COSO) along with the Federation of Club Sports Officers admitted the boxing club into its roster of student organizations and club sports earlier this month, the Club’s student boxers met up here to train under Mickey’s guidance.
Gym owner Thomas Tew is Florida Collegiate Boxing Conference President and his dream is for UM boxers to spar in matches with other collegiate teams across the state and maybe even at the National level.
