When boxing legend Manny Pacquiao visited this Dubai-based boxing gym in 2016, he was more than impressed by what he saw. However, it wasn’t the gym facilities or the training equipment that caught his attention but the fact that everyone, right from the janitor to director of the place was a trained boxer.
Round 10 Boxing Club which has two branches, one in Al Quoz and the other JLT, has 19 employees and four freelancers. All including the two Emirati owners are boxers. Jackie Tullo, who is the newest member of the team, says she is thrilled to be working with people who feel the same about her favorite sport. “We are always talking about our ring adventures,” she says.
“The foremost thing I look for in my staff is a passion for the sport. They may not be professional boxers, but the love for the sport is what matters the most,” he says, adding many of the employees are amateur boxers,” said Ahmed Seddiqi, co-owner of Round 10.
