By CHRIS BECKW1TH H AUTO STORES? Special to The News A boxing club grows in Brooklyn. And grows. And grows.-It's Jimmy O'Pharrow's Starrett City Boxing Club. And, since 1978, Starrett City BC has produced its share of finalists in the Daily News Golden Gloves. This year looks like it will be more of the same for Starrett City. Two nationally ranked Olympic hopefuls are working out with Jimmy O's boxing team. Threetime Daily News Golden Gloves champion Lionel Odoms (119-pound open) fresh from his win in the Met ABF finals will be back to defend his Gloves title. Another win in this year's Daily News Golden Gloves moves him ever closer to the Olympics in Barcelona next summer. And Shannon Briggs (heavyweight open) also will be going for a pair of the coveted Golden Gloves. Briggs is ranked third nationally in his class. Other Starrett City boxers with Golden Gloves credentials are Russell Council (178-pound open) and Nigel Lawson (132-pound open). Both figure to do well in the Gloves. "Over the years, I've had more than 3,000 kids come through Starrett City," O'Pharrow said. "Everybody who comes into my gym is a champion. Most aren't going to go on in boxing. But they're champions. They get jobs. They get married and become family men. They become plumbers, contractors, firemen and cops. They go into the military. But they're all champions in life. "You give them respect and they'll give you respect back," O'Pharrow added. "They talk. I listen. We laugh. Sometimes they tell me things they can't even tell their parents." Jimmy O and his volunteer coaches like to work closely with their boxers. They get into the ring with them. And you don't have to be a boxer to join Starrett City. There's something for everybody of all ages. It also has swimming, basketball, weight training, exercise classes, double-dutch rope jumping and a community room. If you're trying to get ready for the Daily News Golden Gloves, Starrett City has heavy, speed and crazy bags, universal machines and a ring. It's open weekdays from 5 to 8 p.m. and, during the Golden Gloves, from 10 a.m. to noon as well. Starrett City BC is located at 1506 Hornell Loop, Starrett City, in the Sheepshead Bay area.
