  • Boxing fans will find a plethora of memorabilia from the actual Madison Square Garden ring, to championship belts, robes, hand wraps, and photos galore. Be sure to come for the annual induction of Hall of Fame boxers (June).
  • I came for the 2017 Hall of Fame induction weekend. It was great, especially because my brother in law Steve Farhood was an inductee.
  • A great place ! More than I ever imagined. For the over 40 and above , it's a thrill.
  • It was pretty cool seeing the original boxing ring from Madison square garden. The place was kind of small. The staff was very nice though.
