THE STORY:

A Massachusetts native from the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Marty grew up with a deep appreciation for boxing and found himself going to the gym by the ripe old age of just fourteen where he formed many great relationships. It wasn’t long before he was hooked on the sweet science for life.

The reward in boxing for McDonough is in the competition, the unique challenge each opponent brings and the personal challenge to keep getting better.

As any dedicated boxers knows the fights are won in training and honing technique. Make no mistake, Marty trains rigorously.

While his parents are his ultimate role models he has a deep admiration for still active and already legendary trainer, Freddy Roach. A guy who knows a thing or two about technique.

As passionate as Marty is about the sport, he takes great joy in the fact the he can connect boxing to various charities that are important to him. In the end he's dedicated to any cause which helps people but he has a special place in his heart for The Dana Farber Cancer Institute of Boston. In fact, he donates the proceeds from the boxing classes he periodically teaches to them.

Given his Boston roots he was right there to help out in the wake of the devastating bombings and the money he raised ultimately helped a woman pay the medical costs of her multiple injuries including the loss of a leg.

That's all in addition to his sterling record of volunteerism which includes personal donations.

A true hero, Marty is making a difference inside the ring and out as he touches many lives.
