Slava Boxing was founded in 2007 by Steve Kozakov, formerly of Main Gym. Steve Kozakov was one of the first trainers to begin a “white collar boxing” program in the city of Houston, resulting in his being featured by the Houston Chronicle as well as Channel 13 News. Steve began operating at the same time as Gary Simon of Houston’s Heights Gym, who has now gone on to become a corner man for professional fighters as well as a referee for local events such as the annual Golden Gloves competitions.

While Steve maintains involvement in the training and development of amateur and professional boxers, he has continued his focus on “white collar” boxers over the last 15 years. Opening Slava Boxing has enabled Steve to concentrate on providing one-on-one guidance to those who to wish to train like a boxer without having to fight like one.

Personal training sessions with Steve Kozakov are available by appointment at 713-703-3437 or email at kozakovsteve@gmail.com for more information.
