The Word Is Out


"I have been boxing for 11 years, Professionally for the last 3 years. I've known Coach Pena for a long time, after training with him I learned I didn't know everything like I thought I did. Having him as a head coach has been the best thing for me. He works hard and has my best interest at heart. I am excited to see where my boxing career goes now that Coach Pena has helped me reach my full potential."
