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.

Amazing personality and an amazing fighter. Since I’m still new to the stand-up fighting scene, I get nervous when meeting for a match. However, PHLBoxer was patient with me and was happy to teach me some boxing basics which in turn made me feel more confident. Our match was a blast. He seamlessly matched my level of intensity throughout the bout. I highly recommend this guy if you’re in the Philly area.

After some back-and-forth, I was finally able to meet up with this guy. We agreed to box in street clothes (jeans and button-down shirts) which was hotter than I expected. We wore headgear and 12-oz. gloves and got a good sweat going over several rounds. He’s green but very enthusiastic and can both throw and take a punch. With some training he’ll be damned good. I’m eager for a rematch.

I can think of only one word for this guy. Awesome.

Awesome guy.
Awesome personality.
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!

Update:
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.

Update (10/07/17):

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!

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 !

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.

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.

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.

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!!

This young man is one of the smartest, intellectually curious and engaging people I have ever met. He loves politics, social activism, music of all genres and, above all, boxing. He's also a scientist of the sport, able to speak about Harry Greb as easily as Manny Pacquiao. Inside the ropes, once the bell rings, he is ALL business. He can switch stance at ease, which is very frustrating. And he's as tireless as the Energizer® Bunny. My abs have never been as sore than after the 3 rounds we did. I look forward to many more opportunities to swap leather with him.

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!
