ABOUT LEGACY BOXING GYM
Legacy Boxing Gym was formed as a 501(c)(3) in 2017 with a goal to impact youth in the
Frisco/Little Elm/The Colony/Lewisville areas of DFW.
Launched as a small business out of his garage, Rich Lox missed boxing and felt a higher calling to get back into the sport and he wanted to give back to the youth in his communities. Boxing had made such an impact on his life and helped him face some of life’s struggles that he wanted to pass along the values he learned from to the youth in our community. So, like many of the dedicated coaches in the sport, he opened up a gym in his garage and started coaching and mentoring boxers. To date, he has worked with over 100 boxers over the years, serving them both in and out of the ring. The impact on the communities he serves is immeasurable.

Rich is a husband and father of four, Rich loves his family more than anything. Boxing, though, is a close second. Rich started boxing at 6 years old at a gym that his uncles opened to keep local youth out of trouble. Living in a low income, single parent home, Rich saw many of his relatives and family friends become addicted to drugs, get involved in crime, become imprisoned, and even lose their lives. Determined to change his future, he decided to take a different path. Rich went on to win State Silver Gloves, Junior Olympics, and State Golden Gloves titles as an amateur boxer. A cancer survivor, college graduate and a retired professional boxer, Coach Lox was featured in matches on Fox Sports, Telemundo, and HBO PPV during his career.
As an adult, Rich felt called to impact youth and young adults through the sport. He wanted the youth and young adults that train in the gym to know that they did not have to follow the paths laid out before them. He wanted to help them build their future and leave their legacy. It is for these reasons that Legacy Boxing Gym exists today.
