Fairbanks Boxing Club is a USA Amateur Boxing registered boxing club in Fairbanks, Alaska. Once known as the Old Main Boxing Gym in the 1970s and 1980s, it changed its name in the mid 1990s when it moved to its current home on 8th Avenue in Downtown Fairbanks.
FBC coaches boxers of all ages and skill levels, and has produced boxers that not only win championships, but provide a positive influence in the greater Fairbanks community. Our boxers have competed all over Alaska and the United States, and have established a reputation as a tough and skillful team whereever they have traveled.
Fairbanks Boxing Club is coached by Chris Holm, who himself started at the gym under Coach Bill Fairbanks. Holm has been head coach since 2003. He has competed at the state, regional, national and international level, twice taking second place at Tacoma Golden Gloves at two weight classes and a quarterfinalist at the 2005 Ringside World Championships.
