In 1982, Bruce Silverglade, in his 30 s at the time, went into collaborations with Ira Becker, the second proprietor of Gleason’s gym. Ira was in his 70 s.

Silverglade says:” I came from an age where elders were to be respected. I had a great deal of respect for Ira and basically left the main decisions up to him. During this time, there was a lot of filming at the gym and a lot of the women on the crews wanted to try boxing discipline. More and more maidens were questioning and Ira refused to allow the status of women to improve .”
