Our history

We started as a small local boxing gym in downtown Portland with only a handful of coaches. Portland City Boxing was founded by Jeff Marlow who built, owned and operated 11 full-service Athletic Clubs and 2 Martial Arts Studios With over 30 years of gym, boxing and kickboxing training. He is the previous owner of the Princeton Athletic Club in the Governor Hotel. He has since retired in 2020 living in Florida. He sold the business to his two daughters and they now own and operate the boxing gym.

Our history

Punching our way into a new decade! Portland City Boxing has expanded & added a second location on the South East side of Portland. Join in on the fun & boxing fitness at 3228 SE 21st. Ave. The downtown location closed as we could not operate due to government mandates and also crime in the area. It was a tough year for the gym business but we tailored our classes to follow the government mandates. We offered online and outdoor classes and survived the year with our amazing staff and coaches. The gym was sold to the founders two daughters and they now operate and coach at the gym whom are proud to carry on their fathers legacy.
