Team Precision Boxing has been steadily making a name for itself across the New York area. This Dutchess County based boxing gym just produced its first upstate Golden Gloves champion when heavyweight boxer Pat Daka earned the crown after several tournament victories up in Buffalo, NY.
On the local Dutchess County scene fighter John Joy is a familiar face at many of John Carlo’s AKBF fight shows. Always a crowd favorite, John’s straight ahead style made him the organizations 160 pound champion after several hard fought victories. Making him one of the most recognized faces in Dutchess County Boxing.
The man behind the curtain for Team Precision Boxing is Derrick Ohlhoff. Derrick first met Precision owner Brian McLaughlin as their paths crossed at several boxing gyms. The two became sparring partners as Derrick, a 3-time Golden Gloves Champion himself, was training for the nationals. Derrick appreciated McLaughlin’s work ethic and agreed to help train his fighters at his Dutchess County gym in LaGrange, NY. Derrick brings a true wealth of knowledge and experience to Precision, a veteran fighter with more than 30 bouts under his belt Derrick knows the ins and outs of the fight game. Derrick has also worked with high level Dutchess County professional boxers such as Brian Barbosa and Zuri Lawrence.
