BOXING
 
Boxing was very popular after WWII. The Rosemount Boys Club had an excellent program from the start, headed by trainers, coaches, matchmakers Al Edwards and Al McGimpsey. The initial program stopped in 1960. In the 1970s, a second boxing program was started by Abe Pervin.
RBC boxers competed on regularly scheduled cards at the club and throughout the city and the province. The two main competitions were
the City of Montreal(Metropolitan) Championships - end of January and the Golden
Gloves at the end of March.
List of champions and international level boxers coming soon.
