First of all, many thanks to Marlow Prado-Blankenship and Ms. Sarina Morales, The Nike Field Reporter, for thinking of me and my coverage from last year’s LA Boxing: Fight Night. Marlow and Barbara [Bartolomeo] were one of several fighters in the exhibition. Needless to say I was highly impressed with the toughness and conditioning of these ladies. I would not want to tick either one of them off. Congrats to your both on the article. Check it out here:
A Hit Friendship
Fort Washington, Maryland — This was a really cool shoot at Old School Boxing, located in the basement of Rosecroft Raceway. The thing that got me was, from the outside, you’d never know it was there. I went back and forth down Rosecroft Drive thinking I had missed it. Lucky for me Cyprian answers his cell phone! The gym is a very authentic boxing gym with, you guessed it, that old school atmosphere. Inside, dozens of sweaty, yet welcoming faces greeted me as I entered the gym. The smell reminded me of the wrestling rooms back in high school. Weathered boxing gloves and old speed bags line the ceiling, while posters of boxing legends hang immortalized on the walls. I’ll definitely make another run back there and shoot around.
