The Phoenix Club had a step ahead in history, with the majority of its young fighters coming from the Rutherglen and Cambuslang areas. The WBO world featherweight boxing champion Scott Harrison is meant for training up former.
Although a new section is set to start on this gym’s history, since they are set to move to new premises on French Street.
The gym has modest beginnings, being transformed from a run down warehouse to one of the most valued boxing gyms in Glasgow, with Scott Harrison himself laying the floors to the place which would train him up to become world champion.
The club founder and Scott’s father Peter Harrison, from Cambuslang, had gave the explanations how the club got started all those years ago.
Peter said that â€œIt was actually founded to train my son, Scottâ€.
But â€œObviously to run a club though you need a lot more people In it, so we got a lot of other members to join us. The trainer trains others on alternative days like Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
â€œPat Mallon will be the coach, since I’ve been working with Pat for years, I use to train him ages agoâ€ said Peter Harrison.
Also he said that, â€œWe have all different levels to the club, for everyone who thinks to keep their body fit.
