Al "Hollywood" Meggett, founder of Charleston Boxing Club was a pillar of our community and a beloved mentor for decades. In his own words: "I teach the kids how to seek things and love one another... There are children that have been working in my program for over 25 years, and I now have their children and my grandchildren in my program. It's a chain reaction, from one generation to another."

Hollywood passed away on Friday, October 8, 2021 at the age of 90. Hollywood impacted generations in the Charleston area and will be greatly missed.

'Hollywood' Meggett-founded Charleston Boxing Club poised for a comeback

Now renovations are nearly complete, and the boxing club at 1099 King St. has a five-year lease in its name approved by City Council on Dec. 7. The club will occupy the first floor while the second floor will be used for community meetings and events, said Sakran who helped secure the lease.

One of the club’s former boxers and trainers, Darren β€œBroadway” Whitaker, will serve as head coach, bringing with him his own lessons from Hollywood.

β€œOne of the things he instilled in us was giving back to the community,” he said. β€œThis is my way of giving back because any success I’ve had has come through my community.”

His first goal is getting kids back through the door.

β€œWe are going to basically be starting again as a young program,” he said.

From there, Allah said he is eager to use his business experience to reinvigorate the club with merchandise and sponsorships from local businesses.

β€œHe knows that my mind is in business, but he showed me the boxing,” Allah said of his father.

With a potential early 2022 opening, a GoFundMe fundraiser is ongoing to get club up and running as the board seeks further funding opportunities. In the meantime, Allah is leaning on the confidence that Hollywood instilled in him and countless others.

β€œSometimes I wish I could ask him more questions,” he said. β€œBut he gave it all to us. He gave us everything we needed.”

Thank you HOLLYWOOD!! @CHSBoxingClub

The Legacy ..... Charleston Boxing Club The Lessons Continue ....

By 2019, the gym on King Street had fallen into disrepair and needed renovation. That forced Meggett to pack up his photos, memorabilia and equipment.

β€œI have half of my life in that building,” Meggett said then. β€œSo I’m ready to get back in there and keep doing what I’ve been doing for the community.”

Today, the renovation of the building is almost complete, with fresh paint and new hardwood floors. The fire pole is still there, and workers said a boxing ring is planned for the first floor of what will be a community center.

Meggett’s son, Albert Allah Meggett, said his father’s work will continue.

β€œWe are going to continue Hollywood’s dream,” he said Oct. 13. β€œWe’ve already set up a board of directors, which Hollywood set up, and we have our nonprofit set up.

β€œWe’ll be running the same program the same way, working with the kids and going into the high schools and building up the same community we had before. It will be the rebirth of the Charleston Boxing Club.”

A viewing is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. on Oct. 14 at the Arthur W. Christopher Community Center on Fishburne Street. A service will be held there at 11 a.m. on Oct. 15. Masks are required for both events.

Boxing coach Al β€˜Hollywood’ Meggett leaves enduring legacy in Charleston

By Jeff Hartsell [email protected]
https://www.postandcourier.com/sports/boxing-coach-al-hollywood-meggett-leaves-enduring-legacy-in-charleston/article_bbf7a4b6-2c4a-11ec-8f5f-9fdc0466b444.html

It was the early 1980s when Al β€œHollywood” Meggett went to see Charleston Mayor Joe Riley about starting a boxing club downtown.

There was an old fire station on King Street that Riley thought might work, so Hollywood had a boxing ring installed upstairs, near the pole that carried firefighters from the second floor to the first.

That was the genesis of the Charleston Boxing Club, a program run by Meggett for nearly 40 years that impacted the lives of countless young people on the East Side of Charleston and beyond.

Meggett, 90, died on Oct. 8, according to his family, and leaves a lasting legacy in Charleston that stretches beyond boxing.

β€œHe created that whole program for the sole purpose of not only teaching boxing, which he did,” said Riley, Charleston’s mayor from 1975 to 2016. β€œBut also teaching young people the lessons of a successful life, and discipline and good character.

β€œHe obviously taught them to box and was very skillful at that. But beyond that, it was discipline, integrity, honesty, truthfulness and sacrifice. You don’t get anywhere in life, or in boxing, without making sacrifices.”

Meggett was born in Harlem and began teaching boxing to kids there when he was 23. He spent four years in Charleston while he was in the Navy, and then returned to the Lowcountry in 1979.

When he opened the Charleston Boxing Club in 1983, he brought the legendary Muhammad Ali to Charleston for the grand opening.

Ali arrived at 1099 King St. in a motorcade arranged by former Charleston Police Chief Reuben Greenberg, welcomed by a packed house. Ali danced around the ring and put on a show for the crowd.

β€œHe started doing magic tricks, telling jokes,” Meggett recalled for a Post and Courier story. β€œI said, β€˜This man is too much. He’s multitalented.’”

Riley once called Meggett’s program a β€œhuman-building process.” The club was once supported by the Charleston Police Athletic League, but in recent years Meggett has made it work with donations and other support.

β€œHollywood Meggett was a truly remarkable man and a dedicated member of the Charleston community,” said current Mayor John Tecklenburg. β€œThrough his passion for boxing, he served as a mentor to countless young citizens, not only teaching them the sport, but a number of valuable life skills and healthy habits that set them on the path toward success.

β€œHis passing is a tremendous loss for our community, but I am hopeful that the memory of his great impact and achievements will continue to inspire citizens for years to come.”

Meggett’s lifetime in the sport of boxing brought him connections to legends of the sport. His gym was plastered with photos of Meggett with many of them, including Beaufort native Joe Frazier and former heavyweight champ Floyd Patterson. Meggett even posed with former South Carolina senators Fritz Hollings and Strom Thurmond for a picture.

Today, the renovation of the building is almost complete, with fresh paint and new hardwood floors. The fire pole is still there, and workers said a boxing ring is planned for the first floor of what will be a community center.

Meggett’s son, Albert Allah Meggett, said his father’s work will continue.

β€œWe are going to continue Hollywood’s dream,” he said Oct. 13. β€œWe’ve already set up a board of directors, which Hollywood set up, and we have our nonprofit set up.

β€œWe’ll be running the same program the same way, working with the kids and going into the high schools and building up the same community we had before. It will be the rebirth of the Charleston Boxing Club.”

A viewing is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. on Oct. 14 at the Arthur W. Christopher Community Center on Fishburne Street. A service will be held there at 11 a.m. on Oct. 15. Masks are required for both events.
