Visits to Mendez Boxing and Trinity Boxing
Wednesday, August 15 2012
Yesterday, the Haymakers team got an early start to the day (6 am!) and met up with Patrick Barrett (pictured left) at Trinity Boxing down by Wall Street. Patrick, who used to room with one of our favorite veteran fighters, Jim Ramella, at BC, was looking sharp, even before the sun came up! We saw him do drills and hit the bag, looking impressive for a novice. Later in the day, we hit up Mendez Boxing to meet up with Peter Meskouris. Peter has been training on and off at Mendez for a while, and we can definitely tell! Being in the restaurant business his whole life, Peter is very quick on his feet and is one strong son-of-a-gun! In the evening, we went back to Trinity and saw Eric Goldfisher and Joe Mele. Both guys started shadow boxing, then moved on the bags. Joe claims he's only been training for "uhh, about a week and a half?" If that's true, then he must have brothers because he sure knew how to throw a punch! Eric was also looking sharp, moving around the bag in circles (we would have gotten too dizzy!). Be sure to check out these four guys and more November 8th at Roseland Ballroom to see Haymakers for Hope's inaugural New York event! To see Patrick's training photos, click here!
