I have known Ernie as a boxing coach for the past several years. He has shown himself to be a man of integrity and has a passion to teach the "Sweet Science" of boxing to everyone, young and old, men, women and youngsters alike. If you want a fantastic workout and want expert training in boxing, he is the man to whom you should go." ~Ted (attorney)~
A MESSAGE FROM THE OWNER
I have always said that I have always been blessed with health and happiness. I can’t believe 44 years ago, I was a young boy riding motorcycles, playing with my neighborhood buddies, in the area where my Boxing Gym sits today. I often reminisce about the terrific times we had growing up in Ventura and the many fun times we had experienced in my neighborhood, my home. When you visit my boxing gym, it is not just a gym; it is my home away from home. Ventura KO Boxing Club is a spot where teenagers, as well as adults, train in the sport of boxing and share our planned goals as well as our failures. (You’ve got to learn how to lose, before you can learn how to win!!) We are very unique. Our clients include attorneys, doctors, firefighters, deputy sheriffs, Junior and high school students. Currently, I am making many changes at the gym which includes- making more room for various other strength building exercises, implementation of other forms of teachings, and most of all, by continuing to offer you the best service that you rightfully deserve. We are a Gym that will continue to build and build for many years to come. I have always been “home” for the past 54 years and don’t plan on ever leaving anytime soon. Our training is tough but nothing in life comes easy. The best payoff is to invest in yourself. I remember my drill instructor at the Ventura Police and Sheriff‘s Academy in 1980 tell the recruits this that remains with me today. It is “QUITTERS NEVER WIN, AND WINNERS NEVER QUIT”!

FARWELL TO A HERO
On Sunday May 19, 2013, Ernie lost his best friend to cancer, Master Gunnery Sgt. Heliordoro Martinez of Santa Maria. Heliordoro, and known to others as Ponch, assisted Ernie in finding his sons unit upon returning from Iraq, at Camp Pendleton. Ernie was the first to see his son upon returning to US soil and for this Ernie states, " I am forever greatful." Both Ponch and Ernie kept in contact just about every single day. "I spoke with him the night before his passing and I was planning on visiting him Monday morning. When my phone rang at 6am Sunday morning, I knew it wasn't good news."
"A part of me left with him and there will always be that emptiness that best friends as they were always shared."
Thank you for your friendship Ponch, you will always remain in my heart.
"Until we meet again Bro!"

Anna “Puma” Eichman Calls out Crystal Rhoden for Battle of Badges IV
Last years Battle of the Badges pitted Firefighter Crystal Rhoden against Ventura County Sheriff Tech Anna Eichman, which proved to be the Most eventful fight of the night. With the Split decision going to Crystal Rhoden, the Eichman fans felt that the fight should have been in her favor. Both females fought their hearts out and displayed courage, skill and most importantly, their Pride. We hope That Rhoden who is nursing some Tendinitis in her shoulder will agree to the rematch.
Eichman, who changed her name from the Creepy Creeper to "Puma" is hoping Rhoden will accept the Challenge. After the call of Rhoden the Rodent, the fight appears to be the most anticipated rematch from previous B of B Events. Eichman is hoping Rhoden will accept the rematch.
My fight name is "Puma" and you know what Pumas do! They exterminate rodents!" says Eichman.

Welcome to the boxing capital of California
Professional boxing in the United States may have fallen on hard times with the rise of mixed martial arts (MMA), the confusion of multiple titles and a lackluster heavyweight division; but here in Ventura County, the sport remains wildly popular. When Ventura's Victor Ortiz steps into the ring next Saturday, he has the opportunity to become the second local fighter this year to win a world title. With the buzz reaching a frenzy for that fight, we thought it was the right time to lace up the journalistic gloves and take a closer look at a few of the many faces that help to make Ventura County a hotbed of modern pugilism.
VKOB club Welcomes back Zach From Westpoint Academy.
