By Tim Kellum
Former Shelby County Sheriff's Deputy and well known radio and TV personality, Joey Hadley, has opened a new boxing gym in East Memphis. Hadley's Boxing Fitness, located at 6600 Stage Road Road, is a full service boxing facility catering to the needs of fitness enthusiasts and competitive boxers.
Hadley, who was 122-18 as an amateur and 6-0 with 6 knockouts as a professional, is a former student of Cus D'Amato and fought as a professional in the 1970's until an eye infection halted his career inside the ring. Faced with the risk of going blind, Hadley tossed in the towel on his career as a professional fighter and has been training adults and children since.
