Eddie Hearn And Peter Berg Launch The Matchroom Churchill Boxing Gym

12/15/2023 - No comments

Eddie Hearn and Peter Berg, two big shots in their own rights, have teamed up to give the Churchill Boxing Club a facelift, turning it into the snazzy Matchroom Churchill Boxing Gym. This spot in Los Angeles is now the swanky new digs for the world’s top boxing promoter.

Matchroom’s fighters now have a fancy pad on the west coast, right in the heart of boxing’s hotspot. This gym isn’t just for sweating it out; it’s a prime spot for media shindigs, showing off their fighters, and rubbing elbows with commercial pals.

Since 2013, under the eagle eye of Berg – a bigwig director and boxing fanatic – the Churchill Boxing Club has been more than just a gym. It’s been a breeding ground for champs, hosting big names like Dmitry Bivol, Canelo Alvarez, and Gennadiy Golovkin. Berg’s not just a fan; he’s deep in the boxing biz, managing fighters’ careers. Teaming up with Hearn and Matchroom? That’s a game-changer for Berg and the Churchill crew, catapulting them into the boxing big leagues.

Hearn is buzzing about this new venture. He’s seen the likes of Bivol train here and is convinced it’s one of the top gyms in the States. Matchroom’s gone global, especially in the States, promoting top American fighters and mega shows. But they wanted more, and this gym is it – a trusted, elite spot for their talent, with top-notch trainers and facilities. Hearn and Berg share a vision and a passion for boxing, and this partnership is their way of giving their fighters a California home.

Berg’s take? Boxing needs strong, visionary leadership, and he reckons Hearn’s the man for the job. He’s thrilled to align his gym with Hearn, a leader driving the sport forward. Berg’s message is clear: pro fighters looking for top training and a direct line to Matchroom’s world-class promotion, Churchill’s doors are wide open.

Charlie Sims, the new Head of Development at Matchroom Churchill Boxing Gym, is just as excited. Coming from a family of boxing greats – his dad, Tony, runs the Matchroom Gym in the UK – Charlie’s confident this LA gym will be just as successful in hosting champions. When he first stepped into Churchill, he knew it was the right place. Sims is stoked about merging the stories of Hearn and Berg, promising an exciting ride ahead.
