Joe Hand Sr. began his professional career as a Philadelphia Police Detective, but always had an eye and passion for sports, particularly boxing. In 1967, Hand became a charter member of Cloverlay Corporation, the organization that helped guide Joe Frazier to the heavyweight championship. Hand became intrigued by the prospect of forming his own company specializing in sports promotions, and did so with his family in 1971, launching Joe Hand Promotions from a row home in Northeast Philadelphia.
In 1995, Hand established the Joe Hand Boxing Gym, a non-profit organization that has touched the lives of so many. The gym, located on North Third Street in Philadelphia, benefits inner-city children by offering programs designed to encourage children to achieve self-imposed goals. The facility includes a boxing gym and a state-of-the-art computer lab.
