Someone please phone Floyd Mayweather, I am coming for his spot! I am totally kidding but guess what everyone. . . I officially started boxing this past Saturday and let me tell you, I am beyond excited.
Let me introduce my wonderful trainer Joshua ” Iron Boy ” Gonzalez. He has been boxing pretty much his entire life and is going pro soon, so you know I am honored to be learning from him. It was only our first day of training and he told me I was a faster learner (which of course made me happy). He trains me at up in the boogie down Bronx at the Willis Avenue Boxing Gym. They host a bunch of boxing events and its honestly an awesome place. If you want to get into boxing and you’re from NYC, I strongly encourage you to sign up at this gym.
Why did I choose pink gloves and hand wraps you ask? With every purchase of pink gloves/hand wraps Everlast donates money to breast cancer research. Green is my favorite color but trust me it wasn’t a hard choice.
If I do something, I put my all into it. I do not plan on fighting in the ring but you never know, plans can change. For now I will just be doing boxing training. It won’t be easy but it will be worth it. I cannot wait to show you guys my new skills.
