PHLBoxer is recommended by JackWrangler
After some chatting back and forth, the stars aligned and we were both finally able to meet for a friendly boxing match.
PHLBoxer is a professional in and out of the ring. He understood my limitations as a beginner and for wanting to keep the fight platonic. What resulted was a good old fashioned fight between two men with no rounds.
Naturally, the better fighter won after a good back and forth trading head, body, and groin shots. He finished me off with jabs, gut punch, and an uppercut that gave me my first nosebleed. Then, down I went. I may have lost, but PHL gave me the best ass kicking I’ve ever had.
I definitely want a rematch in the future. If you want to go against a serious boxer, PHL is your man.

I can’t say enough good things about this young boxer!
I agreed to Jack’s preferred set up of cowboy boots tucked into jeans and button-down shirts. He agreed to my request that we wear hard cups in the pouch of jockstraps under our jeans. We both wore headguards. Given the almost 30 lb. weight difference, I put him in a pair of 10-oz. pro fight gloves and I wore 14-oz. sparring gloves.
We didn’t do timed rounds. We just boxed until a guy needed an 8-count. Even though he is untrained, he understands the basics of boxing and acquitted himself well. I asked several times if he wanted to take a break, and he always declined. I have no idea how long we boxed, but it was easily more than 20 minutes straight.
We traded clean, hard shots to the head and face, the body, and more than a few below-the-belt. We were both drenched at the end, and my jockstrap was soaked with sweat and precum.
Can’t wait for a rematch!!!
I’ve been wanting to meet Steve ever since I joined this site and we did today. He’s an awesome guy and we trade punches. Super hot and fun. Chemistry was great and he’s just a sane guy which really helps. Meet him if you can!
Got together with AZKO in a spontaneous way (he was in Philadelphia attending a convention). Did several open-ended rounds of gut punching, switching back and forth between giver and taker, free balling in boxing trunks. It was evident from the get go how much we were enjoying ourselves!
He gave as well as he took, and we both ended up with tender abs.
He and I share a lot in common (boxers we’re hot for, what gets us turned on, etc.) and I was so happy we could make something happen on very short notice.
finally got to meet Steve to glove up with. He is the best. Patient with me and fucking solid. Can really take a punch and likes to dish it out too. Def a good guy to lace them up with. Very knowledgeable about boxing. We had a hot sweaty time. Did not want our session to end. Cool to just hang out with too. Very classy guy and man of his word. Brought the boxing to my level so we both had fun. Had a lot of gear to box with but I really liked using the 10oz pro fight gloves. Loved exchanging punches with him. Man I can't wait to glove up with him again. Highly recommended !
Got to box with Steve in a ring. Used 10oz Reyes boxing gloves. Had a blast with him . He is a really tough guy that can take a lot of punishment. Loves getting his midsection worked over and especially low blows. Can't let your guard down with him though because he is a skilled boxer. He also boxed with me at my novice level . Challenged me to "up" my game and really mix it up. We had one sweaty time. So can't wait to glove up with him again. Such a great guy outside of the ring too.
It took more than a decade for me to connect with this stud, but the wait was worth it! Hot looks, hot body, hot attitude = one f'in hot time. Started out in 16-oz. gloves and headgear for several spirited rounds, then switched to his hot 10-oz. pro fight gloves and no headgear for several more rounds. Love the sound of a gloved fist plowing into sweaty muscle, and there was plenty of that. Can't wait to tangle with this stud again.
It took almost two years to schedule a rematch with this stud, but the wait was worth it. Laced him into a pair of black 10- oz. Reyes pro fight gloves which resulted in an immediate tenting of his shorts. When I added a vintage red Tuf-Wear headgear to the outfit, he morphed into an old school fighter with a hungry look in his eyes.
While we had a sizable ring to work in, we pretty much kept the action in close and in the corner. Kevin negated my reach advantage by getting inside and hammering my body and dropping in regular below-the-belt shots to my groin protector.
Love talking boxing with this guy, and love sparring with him even more. I hope it won’t take another 2 years before we meet again in the ring.

FINALLY! after years of talking, PHLBoxer and I were able to meet. The wait was well worth it for sure!
The amount of gear that PHLBoxer has is amazing! Took photos, sparred for a few rounds, full contact and it was great! Glad he took it easy on me, as PHLBoxer is very well trained. Punches were crisp, on point, and hard to block.
PHLBoxer can take a punch for sure, and deliver one right back at you! Totally enjoyed using my 8oz gloves on some gut punching with PHLBoxer, and I believe he also enjoyed it!
I look forward to boxing with PHLBoxer in the future, and also work on skills and more....Truly a gentleman, a great conversationalist, very good boxer, and all around great guy.
If you have the opportunity to meet with PHLBoxer and get in some sparring, DO IT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND WITHOUT RESERVATION!
You won't regret it! Can't wait for our next encounter!
02/15/2019 Update: Met with PHLBoxer again, but in a hotel suite. Had a great time. Did some rounds, worked on some gut punching, took photos for him, and some low blow shots...Had a great time! Always a great time boxing and working out with PHLBoxer!
02/21/2019 Update: Met with PHLBoxer at the Claymont ring, and had a good boxing session. Not sure how many rounds we did, but they were all intense. PHLBoxer can do it all, block, hit, duck, weave, bob, etc. Not the easiest target to hit. Not sure how, but landed a punch that gave PHLBoxer a bloody nose. Took it like a champ, and it stopped bleeding almost immediately, and we were right back to business. Took more photos for PHLBoxer, as he has so much gear! Love to take photos, and PHLBoxer is happy to help with my photographic passion. Awesome time and look forward to many more visits to the Claymont ring to box with him.
02/23/2019 Update: Yet another meeting with PHLBoxer, and another great time boxing! Claymont, DE., ring is just awesome, and so glad to have access to the ring to meet up with PHLBoxer and others. PHLBoxer is skilled, and can adjust to any level of experience. He can give and take punches like a champ. Respectful of limits, but will push you to be your best. Can't wait to box with PHLBoxer again, he is just a all around great guy to box with, chat with, and to know.

It took way too long for me to meet up with Solo, but the wait was well worth it.
He’s smart, funny, and engaging. And he hits like an fucking mule!! He obliged me with a long photo session, followed by some hot, sweaty, full contact sparring. We ended with two untimed rounds of gut punching. His 8oz. Ringside pro fight gloves sting in the best way. I’m sure I’ll regret it — not! — in the morning.
I cannot wait to tangle with this boxing stud again and often!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND WITHOUT RESERVATION.
Met up with Solo for a rematch on Friday, 02/15. We were boxing in the living area of a hotel suite, which, while spacious, is nothing like the ring in Claymont, DE.
Did a number of untimed rounds of body punching and below-the-belt shots and got drenched with sweat and hard as steel in my groin protector.
Had a second 2 hour session with Solo in the Claymont ring. We immediately turned the heat up when we got there and started sweating right away. After some photos were taken, we did 5 3-minute rounds of fairly hard sparring. He gave me a bloody nose very early in the first round, which was a HUGE turn-on for me. The minute I knew that I was bleeding I threw a massive bone in my pro cup.
Another great time with this boxing stud and hoping that it will be the first of many visits to the ring.
Four times in eight days! How could I be so lucky to box this guy so often in such a short period?
Solo joined me and BoxGlv2 at the Claymont ring this past Saturday and I had yet another great time. He’s a fun, considerate guy, but is totally serious about his boxing. Respectful of limits but not afraid to take a punch to land one. Love boxing this guy and can’t wait to do so again soon.

I’ve only tangled with this stud once, but boy was it memorable! He is the perfect combination of built, handsome, skilled and nice. His body is flawless and he has the perfect amount of hair on his torso. He hits hard, which makes the package all the more atttactive.
I am thrilled to see him back on MeetFighters and look forward to eating his knuckle sandwiches again!
Steve, I met him early in my boxing career. He was fantastic in teaching me. He taught me how to spar. He taught me so much. I owe him so much for everything he did for me. Over the years, I got better and he went harder on me. He pushed me harder and harder. Made boxing real for me. Now I am an amateur in the Masters Division in USA Boxing. I really owe some of the thanks to Steve for my start.
PHLBoxer is recommended by CelticFire
I can think of only one word for this guy. Awesome.
Awesome giving hits.
Awesome taking hits.
Also willing to teach and not be a dick about it. You're looking for a fight with a guy who will give it to you, but actually have fun with it? Here's your guy!
Anyone who says "old people" can't fight need to meet up with this guy, because he will definitely put you in your place. So yeah great guy, great personality (isn't a dick) and a great fighter. Can not recommend enough.

Hank is one tough motherfucker! The stars finally aligned again and we got together for 8 3-minute rounds of gut punching with 12-oz. pro fight gloves. I tried to break him — his will and his abs — and just couldn’t do it. He kept coming back for more, round after round, and answered me punch for punch. Awesome guy who will get a rematch whenever he wants.
What a great time!!
I met Hank in a totally spontaneous manner, not sure what to expect, and had an absolute blast. We had a great gut punching session, nailing each other with full-on shots from just below the chin to the navel, using 16-oz. gloves. We traded off who was throwing punches and who was taking them, and pushed each other's limits. My only regrets are: (1) that we didn't have more time and (2) we only had a small space to work in.
He's up for full-contact sparring, and I can't wait for the chance to glove-up with him again.
Cannot recommend him highly enough!!

This big stud can both take a punch and land one! I’m expecting my abs will be sore for days after his relentless assault on them this afternoon. with 12-oz. pro fight gloves. We were both drenched with sweat and can’t wait for a rematch.
As PhlBoxer mention he and I met years ago, we boxed several rounds in various gloves and gear. It was an enjoyed match plenty of punches exchange between us. If the chance comes where we cross paths again I will not hesitate to jump in the ring and mix it up with him again.
It's been many years since I tangled with Pete, and this recommendation is long overdue, but well-deserved.
I was in Houston on business and arranged to get together with this skilled boxer. Did plenty of sweaty rounds in various gear, trading quality shots back and forth. Only regret is that we've never had a rematch!

My first opponent! Really appreciate how he helped me get into the ring. Instructive, toned his impressive skill and strength down to my novice status. Way into gut and pec punching here, he didn't dissapoint in delivering his blows. Absolutely a great guy, represents the best of meet fighters intentions; looking forward to our next fight!
PHLBoxer is recommended by Bikerguy516
Being a new boxer on meetfighters, I rely on recommendations from those of you with more experience than me. There are 3 or 4 guys that everyone says you need to box. PHLBoxer is one of those. And he did not disappoint.
We sparred for at least 5 timed rounds, did several exchanges of body punches, then some gut-punching, then some more punch exchanges. A lot of fun to fight with and a real pleasure to meet. I know I am still on the learning curve but I am hoping to meet up with PHLBoxer again in July when I am in Philly.
PHLBoxer is recommended by boxingforever
This boxer is awesome! We moved quickly from initial contact to setting up a meet, and he kindly accommodated my bizarre traveling schedule. He's got an amazing and extensive collection of boxing gear. We went at it for several rounds, and his hard-hitting punches capitalized on my tendency to drop my guard. His experience showed; we never exceeded a pace too overwhelming for me to handle. Before and after, we had some great conversations about Philly and pro boxers. A very gracious and knowledgeable host. If you're visiting, be sure to hit him up! Highly recommended!

Met up with this boxer as he was passing through Philadelphia and had two AWESOME sparring sessions. In spite of a 70 lb. weight advantage – me at 200 and him at 130 – he brought it. I let him use 10-oz. Everlasts to my 16s, and I felt every shot. Can take it as well as dish it out. Well-rounded and interesting guy outside the ring, so was a truly great meet-up overall. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
I've known this guy for many years and was thrilled to finally meet him. He made a trip to St. Louis and we boxed several times over the days he was there. He's a skilled boxer who hits hard and isn't afraid to trade punches on the inside. And he's a great guy outside the ring, too.

Amazing boxer, experienced for sure. Has a ton of equipment total turn just watching him gear up. Well rounded, great personality outside of a fight atmosphere. Meet up with him if you are in Philly won't regret it.
Boxing dude is recommended by PHLBoxer
This guy is awesome to box with. First of all, he's nice, he's fun, and he gets boxing on all levels. On top of that, he knows what he's doing. Add to that the fact that he's a southpaw and you're in for a challenge.
Our one session was way too brief and I can't wait for a rematch. I honestly don't think I landed a clean punch on him, his defense is so good. If I did, it wasn't more than a glancing blow.
He connected with plenty of clean, crisp punches. I gave him the minute between rounds to work on my abs and almost regretted it. I love body punching and he had me rock-hard inside my pro cup.
Seasoned boxer who will adjust his intensity to his opponent. We did body boxing, and I certainly felt the leather he threw. I was happy I could keep up when he turned it up a notch. Easy to communicate with and set things up.
This handsome guy and I had one of my favorite and most memorable scenes ever! He has true boxing skill and is one of the toughest guys I have boxed / punched on. I was attempting to drop him in a one sided workover where he was taking body shots, and I'm embarrassed to say he actually won that contest! I was completely wet with sweat and hitting him with everything I had. I was stepping into my punches, throwing my weight into em, and following all the way through (the RIGHT way to do it), and he just kept grinning at me and taking my HARDEST shots. He finally wore me the f#@k out!! Was awesome!! I hope to see him again in the near future. NEXT time, I'm taking him DOWN! HIGHLY recommend.
Kyle is one of the hottest guys I've ever tangled with. I was in Austin attending a conference and he agreed to meet up. A sparring partner had bruised Kyle's ribs the week before, so what we did wasn't really sparring. It was more of a one-side beatdown (him of me). I had bought myself a set of 8-oz. Everlast pro fight gloves as a gift, and brought those to Texas with me, along with a pair of Everlast bag gloves. After lacing Kyle into one pair of the 8s, I got into full gear: Boots, jockstrap, big leather protective cup, boxing trunks and gloves (even though I wasn't using them). He had sunk bolts into the wall studs in a spare room, and strung four ropes across the width of the room at the same heights as in an official boxing ring. The ropes were taut enough to support my weight as Kyle went to town on my abs. I also encouraged him to punch me below-the-belt, as I had more than adequate protection. I have no idea how long we were at it, but Kyle ended up glistening with sweat and sporting a huge hard-on in his Everlast boxing trunks. And I was rock-hard inside my pro cup, getting into how much he was getting into it. I've always wanted a rematch where it could be a two-way street of full-contact boxing (head / face shots as well as body punches) and I hope it will happen some day. I'm glad to see he's getting action with some quality boxers. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I've boxed Steve a number of times over the last 10 years and it's always been a good experience. Steve is a skilled boxer who moves well, hits hard and throws crisp combinations. He can stand in there and bang hard with experienced boxers and also tone it down and work on technique with new boxers. Looking forward to gloving up and climbing into the ring with Steve again!

Have only known Evan for a short time, and had two sparring sessions with him, but can't wait to mix it up with him again. He's tough, strong, and hits like a mule; but also very respectful of limits / boundaries and will adjust his intensity in real time.
though its been quite a long time, PHLBoxer and I both enjoyed a hot gym spar. He's strong, experienced with good skills and ring generalship and keeps it sane. Suspect he a good coach for rookies as well, so recommend him to most everyone. Also a gentleman and great to hang with after a good tough workout. Highly rated in my books.

Jason is one of the first guys I met when I "came out" on the boxing circuit, and has been a favorite ever since. He's tough, highly-skilled, and hit likes a mule. But he's a real sweetheart, and can adjust his intensity to whatever level you're looking for.
