"Boxing Their Own Worst Enemy"

Once again Ross has posted an amazing photographic essay he found on Nilson Garrido, a boxing trainer living in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  Nilson had a vision to take the life lessons of boxing to the poorest of the poor in one of the poorest cities in the new world.  He formed boxing gyms under the viaducts of the cities bustling freeway system!

The shots are amazing, but the story is even more so.  Click here to read the whole article!  The lessons Nilson is imparting onto his pupils is invaluable in a place that is so in need of positive life changes.  Remember what these guys are working with the next time you bitch about lack of equipment, gym membership, time, or energy!
