UCC Boxing Club

UCC Boxing Coaches' Wisconsin Golden Gloves 1st Place TrophyOne of UCC’s most notable and distinguished athletic programs is the UCC Boxing Club which has been run by Israel “Shorty” Acosta for close to three decades. Shorty has been helping to mold champions since he was still participating as an amateur boxer, and his capability to coach and mentor athletes of all ages. A number of the fighters have competed in regional, national, and international competitions, including Golden Gloves tournaments and the US Olympic Trials. UCC's boxing program has had an increasing number of female athlete participants over the last number of years.

Shorty was recently recognized at Cerveceros Day at Miller Park and the 25th Annual Fiesta Tailgate, by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin, in partnership with the Milwaukee Brewers, for his dedication to area youth at a special pre-game ceremony.
