In the Boxing Ring

Our Mission

The mission of the Archie Moore, Anybody Can Youth foundation is to empower San Diego's inner-city youth to face life's challenges without cowardice but with courage and dignity. 

The program offers a positive alternative to the prevalent drug and gang violence in the communities we serve. Boxers maintain focus and determination as they work with their peers and ABC’s coaches. Many people may remember our previous head coach, Art Wilson, who worked with Billy Moore for over two decades. Together they produced boxing champions and, more importantly, well-rounded individuals. Our new Coach, David Torres, and other volunteer coaches are now at the helm and here to guide our youth to reach both their athletic and life goals.
