Boxing flourished at the Portland Expo from 1966-69, but died out in the early 1970s. Joey Gamache of Lewiston, who fought on the U.S. Boxing Team as an amateur and won two World Boxing Association titles in the early 1990s, helped generate renewed interest in the sport. Bobby Russo and Mark Giglio founded the Portland Boxing Club in the old N. T. Fox lumberyard drying kiln near Morrill's Corner in Portland, and recently hosted the United States Amateur Boxing-sanctioned Northeastern Regional Championships. Dick Potvin and Rod MacDonald run the Southern Maine Boxing club in Biddeford, and have spent the past few years organizing amateur boxing in the state.
