Lowell – Lowell Memorial Auditorium is proud to welcome the 77th Annual Golden Gloves every Thursday night starting Thursday, January 11, 2024 – March 7, 2024. Every year in the Golden Gloves there is a new flock of boxers trying to work their way up from the bottom in hopes of advancing their way to top of the competition.
“The Golden Gloves season will be here before you know it. This year marks the 77thyear of a great winter tradition in Lowell. The 2022 tournament was a record-breaking year with the help of a special guest, the legendary former World Heavyweight Champ Mike Tyson. Fans asked how we could top that in 2023 and the quick answer was how about an appearance by the guy that beat Tyson? We followed through with a special guest appearance by former World Heavyweight Champion Buster Douglas, much to the appreciation of the great Lowell boxing fans. The fans were treated to nine weeks of non-stop action from boxers all over New England. We’re working on a special guest appearance for 2024 – stay tuned! I’m proud to be a part of this great Lowell tradition as the Director of the New England Golden Gloves and I look forward to another exciting action-packed season in 2024. Just as a reminder as the holiday season approaches, season tickets to the Golden Gloves make a great gift for boxing fans.” – Bob Russo, Executive Director New England Golden Gloves.

The Gloves has been a tradition in New England since 1947 and sells out the Lowell Memorial Auditorium every year. “It’s only there to give kids a way out of a lifestyle and to promote the sport of boxing along with good health, good training, exercise and confidence.”
When you win the Golden Gloves, you don’t get paid, you get the respect of your community; that’s very important to a young kid, as it gives them confidence to build their life upon.
Lowell, Massachusetts has a great tradition of boxing dating back 77 years ago. When you go to a Golden Gloves show in Lowell, you know that it is unlike other boxing shows or any other sporting event in general. There is electricity in the air, fans get a certain charge when they watch these fighters give every ounce of themselves for something that can’t be seen or touched.
This yearly event to the combatants is that it’s not about prizes; it’s about pride. Many of the fighters who range in age from 18-40, are not even on a path to the pros or even the Olympics — they are simply there to say they fought in the Golden Gloves. Each match with start at 7:30pm.
