Joe Goossen is a Southern California based trainer who rose to prominence guiding the Ruelas brothers, Gabe and Rafael, to world titles. His entire family has been involved in boxing since the 1980s, either as a trainer, manager, promoter (his late brother Dan Goossen running a number of promotional firms, including America Presents Boxing and Goossen Tutor Promotions), or owning the Ten Goose gym in Los Angeles, popular with both pro fighters and celebrities. The gym's name is a reference to his family, as Joe is one of ten siblings. He is a 2005 Inductee into the California Boxing Hall of Fame.
