Recently, the Uppercut Boxing Gym of Maryland, opened at 4408 Park Heights in northwest Baltimore, and will serve as a vital resource for young people far beyond the boxing ring. The gym is owned by G. “Thunder” Robinson, a certified boxing trainer and one of the only women to own a boxing gym in the state. The grand opening was hosted by Pam Curtis of the Pushing the Vision Outreach, co-chair of the Baltimore City Women’s Commission and president of the Park Circle Community Association. The event was attended by several community leaders, public servants and politicians.
