South Box gym is located in 2413 Third Ave and is run by Eric Kelly, a Boxing Champion, and a trash talking loud mouth.

Thirty-six-year-old Eric Kelly is drawing inspiration from a history of boxing in the Bronx that includes greats like three-weight world champion Iran Barkley and middle-weight champion Jake “the Bronx Bull” LaMotta.  SouthBox is right in the heart of a fast-gentrifying part of the south Bronx where developer Keith Rubenstein plans to build luxury high-rises. In fact, he helped Kelly get started here. However, the former amateur boxer and two-time Daily News Golden Glove Champ says he isn’t trying to cash in on the neighborhood.
