Long Pond Inn Training Camp®
Not too many boxing training camps can boast that they also had a bar, but the Long Pond Inn Training Camp in upstate New York could do just that. It was an interesting setup for some of the fighters who sought out this refuge.
In the 1940′s and 1950′s Long Pond Inn Training Camp provided seclusion for boxers seeking isolation from fans, distractions, and even other fighters.
The location allowed these fighters and many more to focus on their upcoming matches without being bothered by the press and other people. It also sported a healthy dining and beverage location so that each and every fighter there could have what he wanted and to relax in the evening, if that’s what he chose.
The entourage of some of these boxers were as legendary at the Long Pond Inn Training Camp as their prize fighters.
Designed around the notion of being the quintessential training ground for the best boxers, Long Pond Inn excelled for a period of time, but its legend was far outlived by many of the men who called this place home for the period of time that they had.
