Boxing Classes in Portland

Due to a variety of factors, Sweet Science Boxing will be closing as of 8.31.2020.  We made our best effort to bounce back after a 3 month lock down, but the numbers just aren't there.  I will be relocating to the east coast in the next 60 days and it did not make sense to transfer ownership in an uncertain business time.  All gear goes on sale next week!  Thanks for your support.
