Northside Boxing Gym
Introduction & History
Northside is an old-school boxing gym located in the historic Preston Scout Hall. It was established in 1992 by the one-and-only Long John McCubbin who coached many Australian champions.
Over the years, the community has changed and Northside has evolved, but John’s core values and moral principals around community, social attitude, and equality; bound by a commitment and discipline to exercise, still underline Northside’s very existence.Maurice Schott and George Karanikos took over the reigns in 2002. Maurice grew the fighters stable: he coached the likes of Justin Nolan, Mark Schlieb, Chris Collard, Koder Assi and Korobo Etto. He gave tirelessly to the gym and with the help of George grew the membership and introduced fitness workouts. A dedicated team of trainers with different skills and abilities currently run Northside. It isn’t flashy. You put $5 in a tin at the door and away you go. It can change your life.
