About Us

Opened in 2019, Walkden ABC was the big dream brought to life by Jamie Moore - a former European, British, Irish, Commonwealth and European Light –middleweight Champion. With the the help and support of the Maverick Stars Trust, Jamie has brought to his community a state of the art boxing gym in Walkden, underneath the shopping centre. The unit is shared with Salford Leisure who use half the space, and Walkden ABC has created a purpose built, secure self contained gym in the other.

Community is at the heart of the gym, and everything we do. Jamie Moore, the clubs founder and Maverick Stars Ambassador set up the club to give back to a community that supported him loyally through his professional career.
