Johnny Tocco opened our legendary boxing gym in Las Vegas in the early 1950s. Mr. Tocco operated the gym for over 40 years, and during this time, he was a trainer and manager to many successful professional boxers, most notably former heavyweight champions Charles “Sonny” Liston, Larry Holmes, and Michael Dokes. The compassion and attention Johnny showed to his fighters, along with his love for the sport of boxing and his community, made a tremendous impact on the lives of many. Johnny Tocco sold the gym in 1997, just prior to his death. While our small ringside gym has changed ownership several times over the years, it has remained a historical icon.
Currently, Johnny Tocco’s Ringside Boxing Gym is under new ownership and management. Through the leadership of C.J. Wiggins, the owner of Improve You Management, LLC, we’ve had the opportunity to provide professional guidance in wellness and business, sharing our knowledge with several boxing greats to include former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. C.J. has a deep appreciation for the sport and a genuine sense of pride in our gym’s iconic status in America’s boxing mecca.
With the help of Tocco's world-class boxing trainers, C.J. will continue to preserve the nostalgia of this little piece of history that sits in downtown Las Vegas. While C.J. never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Tocco, he is fully committed to the honesty and integrity of our gym and to operating it with the same passion for the sport as its Hall of Fame namesake.
