➢ History
Freddy’s Boxing was developed by Freddy Barreiro 40 years ago in South Lorain. In 1993 six months before his death, Patsie C. Campana (P. C.) asked Scotti C. Campana to meet him at Campana’s Café to discuss some very important issues. He gave Scotti 7 things to do if something was ever to happen to him. The sixth task was to find Freddy Barreiro and build him a Boxing Gym. Six months later P. C. passed away and Scotti went out to fulfill his fathers wishes and found Freddy. His Boxing Gym at the time was the old Harrison School on 19th St., in the basement. He was using garden hoses as ropes and didn’t even have a ring. His equipment was in bad shape and he only had one speed bag and three heavy bags. Ironically enough 19th Street is the place that cultivated the Campana Family and made them what they are today. My father learned basically everything in result of that neighborhood and that environment. To add to the story he flunked out of the 1st grade at Harrison school 68 years earlier because he couldn’t catch on to the English language. It was a divine appointment for sure!!!
He was a special person with loving and giving qualities. He was always sensitive to everyone around him. He was always eager to reach or sometimes stretch to help another person.
He always had a strong faith in GOD!!! Our Relationship with GOD “Jesus” is Vertical and our relationship with Man is parallel, GOD is sensitive to our needs based on how sensitive we are to our fellow man.
Scotti & Krissi Campana set a meeting up at their home with Freddy and History was made. We had several Fun-Raisers from Boxing matches to Steak Fry’s and we raised enough money to establish and sustain Freddy’s Boxing since 1996.

Thank you to the Campana Family, Mr. & Mrs. Patsie and Jenee Campna, David, Patty, Larry, Pat jr., Robert. Thanks to employees at P. C. Campana, Inc, for their talents and their time building the equipment needed to establish a Awesome Boxing gym. A special thanks to the Jon Veard Family for allowing us to utilize their building for the first 5 years.
