Anthony McPhall was honored by Stevenson and Moses Boxing for Life for his commitment to the community. The benefit, Ringside for a Cause, was held on Friday, November 15, 2019, in Glen Ridge, NJ. The event was hosted by Stephanie Hutton. CC Minton and Gregory Burrus co-chaired the benefit.
In 2014, Anthony became the owner of Elite Heat Boxing which he inherited back from its original owner Coach Wali Moses. Up until the age of 17, his son, Armani spent most of his time in the gym with his father. When not in the gym, Anthony and Armani would go to Penn Station and feed the less fortunate. They went for their birthday's on April 1 and December 5. Like most teenagers, Armani decided to pull back and pursue other interests. Unfortunately, a turn of event happens where Anthony learned that his son Armani expired on December 22, 2016. Armani was only 19 years old.
In honor of Armani, Anthony still continues to go down to Penn Station. But now, he travels with a team of boxers. They hand out food, water, napkins, and spoons to those who are in need.
"Anthony McPhall embodies the strength of Stevenson and Moses Boxing our mission," said CC Minton, President Stevenson and Moses Boxing for Life. "I'm excited to have Anthony as one of our honorees this year!"
As the owner of Elite Heat Boxing, Anthony keeps the spirit alive in the gym. He offers boxing to men and women and has trade-marked the brand. Elite Heat sells its own brand of Elite water, boxing gloves, hand wraps, and other gear. Anthony is a consultant to Fortune 500 companies while he continues to expand his business.
We honor Anthony and his love for his son Armani and the community in which they serve.
