Boxing History

On Wednesday the Pop Up Museum visited the youth boxing club at the Gasholder Park in Kings Cross. There we heard from local people that the area has a history with the sport which is now being revived by Albert’s club. Did you know that the German Gymnasium bar near Kings Cross Station used to be the Lonsdale Boxing Gym? Everyone from local enthusiasts to professional boxers from the US passed through their doors while John Kent was manager from 1989 to 1992. You wouldn’t realise eating there now!
