I owe it to BoxerVA to update you on how this wrestler I'm mentoring has improved so much over the years and recently. Had a match with him yesterday (Feb 19, 2018) as was so impressed how his already hard body had become so much harder and his skillful wrestling had become so much more skilled recently. I've tangled with him for over a decade; and he keeps getting de facto "younger," stronger, leaner, and more skilled.
I recommend this really nice person to anyone from a total newbie to the very experienced. I trust him enough to have been the first guy to box with and to mentor me at it. He can work the full light-to-heavy action spectrum.
He has gone to great efforts to meet me so many times over the years – a friendship which will last our lives. And you can bet he will be one tough boxer and wrestler 10, 20, 30 or more years from now. Go for it! But be real; because he can (1) spot phonies and (2) can throw one of the hardest punches I've taken. Check my blog for more about him.

A very good sport – he's a boxer but agreed to meet me for wrestling since I'm useless at boxing. He's very fit with a lean hard body and is a super nice guy. He put up a good fight and took his beating like a champ (LOL). We really had fun rolling around, and a match like this, where we laugh a lot and goof around, is my idea of a great time. Would gladly meet him again!
I highly recommend Boxer VA for both boxing and wrestling. He is skilled (boxing/wrestling), willing to work with you to make sure you have an enjoyable time, and is a really nice guy.
Still recovering from a catastrophic car accident, Boxer VA was willing to be my first and recent step back into wrestling action after a long period of recovery. He is patient, adjusts the level of intensity to what is appropriate, and willing to adjust styles to what suits the situation. We did some general pro move moves, some body punching, and some practicing of holds.
We met and wrestled once many years ago and he remains a great guy and a great wrestling/punching friend. You can't go wrong with him!

Excellent boxer. Boxer's years of formal training equips him well for boxing. We have boxed a few times and I look forward to more fights.

Coleman is a super guy and an excellent boxer. He took it easy on me in light of the difference in our ages and skill levels. We boxed and then wrestled. Great fun all around.
Boxer VA is recommended by AussieBoxer
Excellent, trained boxer - fast, aggressive, skilled. Have enjoyed sparring him in the legendary mat room on a number of occasions. Very highly recommended.

I have known Boxer VA for more years than I care to remember. He's a wonderful friend. He is in great shape and I enjoy doing pad work with him very much indeed. Boxer VA has real skills, as others have said. He's fit, strong and skilful enough to accommodate his intensity to those he's with - others have said the same, and it's not true of all the trained boxers on the site. Absolutely to be recommended. Boxer VA is the real thing and anyone with experience wanting to spar and/or develop as a boxer should beat a path to his door. Oh yes, and he's a wonderful person too!

I've known IrishBoxer for over 10 years. He was trained by a legendary coach and it shows. Highly knowledegable in boxing with a personality.. He's taught me so much in the past years and I continue to learn more from him each time we meet. I would not hesitate to meet with him - you won't be disappointed! (Plus, he has a incredible left hook).

I was looking forward to meeting BoxerVA since he has an excellent reputation on Meetfighters and he did not disappoint. Though I was greatly outmatched by this skilled fighter, we sparred at least 6 timed rounds (I lost count) and had a good exchange of punches. He has a good defense and it was tough to land a lot of shots but I got a few in. He also kept to our agreement to full power body shots and "less than full power" head shots. Good thing for me! He got me in the face a couple of times! But it was all safe and sane. He was also very gracious in giving me, the newbie, some advice and pointers and even did some mitt work with me. I would highly recommend him to any boxer looking to glove up with a reliable opponent and I hope to be able to spar a full 10 or 12 rounds with him in the future.

I met Bikerguy516 today and had a great time. We boxed for about 7 rounds, and had some really good exchanges. I was surprised to learn that he'd had only been boxing for a less than a year. Though some of his skills raw, he has a good punch, good instincts, and a lot of heart. Even more, he's a gentleman in and out of the gloves. I look forward to meeting him again, and seeing how he has gotten better.
Great guy, very fun to wrestle, in good shape. We had a tremendous hour of rolling. Really Nice guy off the mat. Well worth the time and effort to meet. High recommendation.

Boxer can wrestle too. Met him a few times and wrestled several styles from light to really intense. Always great fun and a friendly guy as well.

Good boxer and works with his opponent to be at the same level
Had a great sparring session with Coleman - he's quick and packs a good punch. Nice guy with the gloves off too, I'm happy to recommend him and look forward to another sparring session!
Have been wrestling Coleman for years he probably only weighed about 130 lbs. when we met. and I could beat him easily-now he his bigger and stronger than me and puts me through the paces. Very nice guy I consider a friend.
This man is TOUGH! You want a good boxing match? You won't be sorry. Skilled with over 8 years of boxing experience, he can deliver punches so hard you may end up on the floor in a K/O. And very much a gentleman. He will be a lifelong friend.
Had a great spar with Boxer_VA. Good skills, speed and tenacious. Certainly one of the best boxers in the DC area. Also easy on the eyes, good host and can highly recommend.

After months, maybe years of chatting with Boxer_VA, finally got the chance to glove up with him. Great guy/great boxer (watch out for his jab/cross!), and look forward to meeting again soon. Would highly recommend that you glove up with him if you get the chance.
Has been WAY too long since I last gloved-up with Coleman, but he's definitely worth arraging to meet. Hoping to see him across the "ring" from me again soon.
Highly recommend Boxer VA. Great guy, gives a great workout, always safe and sane.
