Cleveland has held a local tournament in conjunction with the National Golden Gloves of America since 1928.

Together with local coaches, trainers and counselors, we have helped thousands of amateur boxers across Northeast Ohio to work towards and to often achieve their dreams of competition and championships.

Each year, the CAGG actively supports our boxers as they progress in their amateur careers. This is specifically accomplished by sponsoring our local tournament and by sending our team of local champions across the United States to represent our area in the National Tournament.
