The Goossen family name has been one of the most recognized and respected names in the sport of boxing for over 30 years. As a family with a lifelong dedication to the sport, they have been responsible for training and promoting world champions for more than three decades. It is that dedication to excellence that trainer Joe Goosen continues to carry on at Ten Goose Boxing Gym in Van Nuys.
A two-time hall of fame inductee (California Boxing Hall of Fame and World Boxing Hall of Fame) Joe has discovered and developed world champions including Gabriel and Rafael Rueles, Diego “Chico” Corrales, Michael Nunn, Terry Norris, Shane Mosley and Joel Casamayor among others. Hollywood, too, has benefitted from his teaching. Brad Pitt, Adam Sandler and Gene Hackman have all sought out his talents as a trainer when preparing for a role.
In addition to training, Joe has also developed a career as a TV personality and been a regular color commentator on HBO, TVKO, FOX and Prime Networks. And for over a decade, Joe and the rest of the Goosen family have been committed to promoting smaller-scale local boxing shows at “The Country Club” in Reseda.
When you become part of the family at Ten Goose Boxing, you become part of a legacy of excellence. Beginner or seasoned pro, you will have the opportunity to participate in the same type of “fight camp” that Joe puts all his fighters through. By learning those techniques, you will not only get in great shape physically, but benefit from the mental toughness that comes from learning to box. More importantly, you will learn what it takes to be a champion…
