Aberdeen Amateur Boxing Club was founded in 1920 by Tommy Begg. Tommy was one of the most accomplished boxers in Scotland at the time and was the undefeated fly and bantam weight champion of the North of Scotland.
The club itself is the second oldest in Scotland and has been running successfully by Adam Smith since 1972 until 2013. Adam has now passed the leadership of the club to his son Leroy Smith. Leroy has been the Club President since 2009.
The club currently runs on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:30 – 9:30pm (approximately).
